09:28 - 11 Sep 2020

Fotografiska will open a fourth museum in 2022. The museum will house 5,500 square meters in the historic Kunsthaus Tacheles building in Berlin. The architects Herzog & de Meuron have been assigned to carry out a modern renovation. The opening is expected in late 2022.

— Berlin 2022. We will now open a fourth museum in vibrant Berlin, in one of the city's most interesting buildings from a culture-historical perspective, Kunsthaus Tacheles. It is truly the perfect home for Fotografiska in Germany, says Per Broman, CEO and founder of Fotografiska in Stockholm.

Kunsthaus Tacheles is listed as a cultural heritage site. It has therefore been decided in close consultation with the responsible authorities that the facade and certain rooms in the building will be restored. Damages from the war, as well as artistic choices made over the past 80 years, will be retained and even made visible.

Fotografiska was founded by the brothers Jan and Per Broman in Stockholm in 2010. In 2019, additional museums were opened in New York and Tallinn. Today Fotografiska is owned by several partners and the Berlin-based Yoram Roth is the majority owner:

— As my hometown, Berlin was always a dream location for Fotografiska. Today, Berlin is one of the most important cities in the world of photography, with leading museums, academies, and galleries. My wish is to redefine the classical concept of the museum: I want it to be a cultural center that is also part of the cultural scene as a whole. Fotografiska does not want to be a repository of art in silent, holy halls, but instead a place of vibrant, creative interaction and promote constructive dialogue with the community outside its doors. Simply entertaining our audience with photography is not enough to my mind: Fotografiska wants to foster and initiate changes. innovation, inclusion, inspiration, and sustainability are core elements of our work in this regard. In the years after the fall of the Wall, Tacheles was home to a group of artists who thought outside the box. It is time to continue that effort: Fotografiska is a community open to all - just like Berlin, says Yoram Roth.
