The House of the World’s Cultures is an exhibition space for international contemporary art in Berlin and a forum for actual developments and discourses. It presents artistic productions from all over the world especially considering non-European cultures and societies.

The House of the World’s Cultures has its domicile since its foundation in 1989 at the former congress hall at the shore of the river Spree at Tiergarten and the government quarter. the congress hall, as an icon of modernist architecture, had become a prominent symbol for the German-American alliance. Berliners also call it the ‚pregnant oyster‘ because of its unique form.
