About Aufbau Haus

Aufbau Haus Prinzenstrasse 84 & 85

In a unique way, the Aufbau Haus at Moritzplatz combines both, cultural institutions as well as creative businesses.

Its name refers to the same-called publishing house AUFBAU VERLAGE, which has its registered office there ever since the house’s opening in 2011. The publishing group of aufbau and aufbau taschenbuch (paperback) also encloses the publishing labels BLUMENBAR, Ch. Links Verlag, Rütten & Loening and both, DIE ANDERE BIBLIOTHEK (“The Different Library”) and EDITION BRAUS.

At the tak THEATER AUFBAU KREUZBERG, various international networking groups of the independent scene have come together to establish a joint transnational theatre. The KAI DIKHAS FOUNDATION, the BOOKSTORE MORITZPLATZ and the CLB BERLIN – just to name a few – also offer a wide range of cultural events with exhibitions, readings and public discussions.

Tomorrow’s creative heads learn at the srh Berlin School of Design and Communication, and get their working material – just like all constructive people can – at MODULOR and its neighboring craft and service partners. Printers, carpenters, tailors, goldsmiths and architects allow passers-by to have a look onto the production process through the artists’ vitreous studios. Next door, MINIMUM offers design classics for office and living spaces. And perhaps you take a self-portrait from the world’s unique walk-in large-format camera IMAGO home with you?

In the Berlin representative office of the DOCUMENATION AND CULTURE CENTER OF GERMAN SINTI AND ROMA, workshops, conventions, readings, movie screenings and exhibitions take place regularly. The youth organizations AMARO DROM and AMARO FORO encourage political and societal participation of young Roma, and also RAA Berlin, ASPE e.V. and IBAS facilitate the understanding between the majority society and the minority. Meanwhile, the children from KINDERGARTEN WILDFANG (“wild child”) play on the roof.

Needless to say that there is no lack of culinary supplies at such a place: the scent of CAFE ROCK-PAPER-SCISSORS wafts continuously through the main foyer, Foodbag attracts with international cuisine.

The tak THEATER's rooms at Aufbau Haus are temporarily rentable, also are the STADTTERRASSE (city's terrace), the ORANIENHOF AND PRINZENHOF (courtyards) and the ROOFDECKS (No. 84 Floor 6, No. 85 Floor 3).
