Berlin’s coolest club is now Berlin’s coolest gallery

Germany’s infamously hard-to-get-into Berghain Nightclub is reopening. With a very different door policy.

Berghain, the Berliner nightclub with a famously tough door policy, has kept them permanently closed since Covid-19 began its world tour. Before us, we now see a different door, a virtual one and what’s inside? A fine art gallery.

In a similar vein to Berghain’s elite clientele, the gallery offering isn’t your usual fare. First served is an exhibition entitled Studio Berlin. A feast of more than 80 prominent artists including heavy hitters Wolfgang Tillmans, Cyprien Gaillard, Olafur Eliasson and Tacita Dean.

National and international artworks in the fields of photography, sculpture, painting, video, sound, performance and installation will be on view. The exhibition, organised by the Boros Foundation, can be viewed from 9 September onwards.

Book online to view the work and the elusive inner workings of the old Berghain. Factory brick columns and all.
