Neue Berliner Räume

Neue Berliner Räume is a nomadic project space in Berlin that was established in 2011. NBR organises cultural projects in various places across the city, consciously foregoing working from a fixed space.


The exhibitions and projects of NBR are directed towards the historical, societal, affective and architectural contexts of various places in the city, sharing these investigations with a broad public. This is accompanied by thematically-focussed group exhibitions and the presentation of selected solo positions in contemporary culture.


NBR is a non-profit organisation run on a voluntary basis by Sylvia Sadzinski, Valerie Senden, Manuel Wischnewski and Marie Wocher – in cooperation with a constantly growing ensemble of contributors of various disciplines. NBR’s interdisciplinary projects have featured in various festivals, including the International Literature Festival and the Project Space Festival Berlin, and are often developed in close collaboration with partners such as C/O Berlin, Kunsthaus Dahlem or Freie Universität Berlin. In 2015, NBR was given the Project Space Award by the Senate Department for Culture of the City of Berlin.


Not least, NBR’s program is structured around an effort to experience Berlin in ever-new ways, to remain curious, and to facilitate a shared process of learning about this city.
