Get Lost in Dark Rooms full of Art: The LOST ART Festival

One of the major qualities of Berlin is that it never stops coming up with disused old breweries, factories, or power stations that all of a sudden get a new lease on life as event and exhibition spaces. These places are usually massive and thanks to that the things that can happen here can go so far beyond what’s possible in a small gallery in Mitte.

That’s why we are so excited to see what the LOST ART Festival will come up with at their latest edition that will happen on September 24-26, 2021. They are using 6000 square meters of industrial halls of the old powerhouse in Reinickendorf to present the work of 80 artists in a 48h long art happening. A 1km long route through 24 dark rooms will create an ambiance of mystery and surprise. And you know we love a good surprise in the dark 😉

In addition to the exhibition, there will also be a 48h cinema hosted by Berlin-based arthouse streaming platform Behind The Tree, an entire floor with performances, as well as 2 open-air stages that will present live music during the day and DJ sets at night. So you can be sure this will heat up at the late hours. This is really much more than we could ask for!
