PLATOON KUNSTHALLE is designed as an experimental space for artists, creatives and members of the PLATOON NETWORK and hosts art projects, workshops and events.

 

The Kunsthalle in Berlin opened in July 2012 as a modular structure comprised of 34 shipping containers and serves as a platform for contemporary creativity. Unlike the typical ‘white cube’ art institutions, it offers a home to subculture initiatives: events, exhibitions, workshops, lectures, and discussion for urban street art, graphic design, performance, fashion, digital art, music, film, club culture, and political interventions.

 

The Kunsthalle in Berlin is the second container structure to be erected by Platoon and GRAFT. The first was erected in Seoul, South Korea, and won the Korean Architecture Prize 2009, the RedDot Award 2010 and the Design Prize of the Federal Republic of Germany 2011.
