The Jewish girls school

The probably most expected opening of this week is the inauguration of the Jewish girls school at Auguststraße. The building in the middle of our city, which was empty for almost a decade, is now ready to become one of Mitte’s art and restaurant highlights. The Jewish community owns the place and is renting it to several reknown institutions of Berlin’s art and culinary scene. Three galleries and three restaurants, one of them being entirely kosher, are revitalising the building’s interior. We had the possibility to check out the rooms before the opening and to get some impressions of the still unfinished place. I still remeber the Biennale exhibition I saw here in 2006, and I am kind of sad about the white cube atmospere that the galleries have. However, the restaurants have a beautiful 50ies / 60ies appeal which in my opinion is somehow appropiate. Check out our pictures after the jump.
