The new KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art is taking shape in the unconventional space of the former Kindl brewery in Berlin’s Neukölln district. This new art complex covering 5,500 square metres now opens its first space, the spectacular 20-metre-high Boiler House, as an exhibition venue for international contemporary art. Swiss artist Roman Signer (born in 1938 in Appenzell, lives in St. Gallen) has developed his installation Kitfox Experimental for this impressive space. Once a year, international artists will be commissioned to realise a site-specific installation, which will remain on view in the Boiler House for about nine months. The Centre is privately funded, and will show temporary exhibitions, and also provide space for events and a café. KINDL intends to both promote new ideas and themes and pick up on existing discourse, taking part in international debates on art while also further enlivening the Neukölln neighbourhood.
