The urban planning commission of Berlin-Lichtenberg has banned all future exhibitions at FAHRBEREITSCHAFT, Berlin. On August 21, 2018, the mayor of Lichtenberg invited all stakeholders of the Berlin Senate and the borough of Lichtenberg to analyze the situation at a roundtable discussion.
After a private face-to-face conversation with Ms. Monteiro and a close view on all facts and the development of the discussion during the last months, it became clear that we will no longer be able to develop FAHRBEREITSCHAFT in the way we planned to. Therefore, we decided that we stop hosting exhibitions showing works of our collection in Lichtenberg.
In order to maintain and foster a creative environment, we will continue to advocate for the artists, who have their studios at our place, to organize their own exhibitions at FAHRBEREITSCHAFT. The previous roundtable discussion indicated that future exhibitions by local artists will be permitted in certain situations.
