Akademie der Künste (ADK)
The Akademie der Künste is an artist association, an exhibition and event location, a meeting place for artists and people interested in the arts, where public debates on art and cultural policy take place. A key part of the Academy is its Archive. With over 1,200 bequests by artists and an extensive art collection and library, the Archive is one of the most important interdisciplinary archives of 20th century art.
The event programme of the Academy serves to present contemporary artistic positions to the public and is dedicated to safeguarding cultural heritage. In its two permanent locations in the heart of Berlin – Pariser Platz in the Berlin-Mitte district and Hanseatenweg in Tiergarten – the Academy shows exhibitions, organises concerts, debates, readings, awards ceremonies, as well as film, theatre, and dance performances.
