The in-house KUNSTRAUM m3 (formerly known as Kunsthalle m3) is an integral part of the Atelierhaus Mengerzeile e.V. Since 2001, it has been the venue for regular exhibitions, events, and workshops in Berlin Alt-Treptow. The space serves as a platform for artists to explore and present their work, fostering a vibrant and dynamic environment. The Kunstraum m3 embraces diversity in artistic expression and provides a welcoming space for both emerging and established artists to share their unique perspectives. As part of the annual group exhibition and the open studios, artists from Atelierhaus Mengerzeile provide insights into their current work.

The premises of m3 can also be rented for workshops and exhibition projects. (Rentals)

The Kunstraum m3 emerged from the Kunsthalle m3, which is closely intertwined with the history of the house. (HISTORY)

The current Atelierhaus Mengerzeile, like the entire city of Berlin, has undergone profound transformations in its history. Its story as a place of artistic creation began in 1993 in the midst of a wasteland directly along the old Berlin Wall strip. Back then, there was ample space that was filled with life, utopian ideas, and artistic and cultural endeavors. The m3 emerged from the desire of these artists to share their work and exhibit other artists. At that time, the m3 occupied a generous art hall. Now, 30 years have passed. In many places in Berlin, artistic endeavors had to yield to economic pressures. Thanks to the determined efforts of the artists in negotiations with the city and the new owner, the cultural site in Mengerzeile was preserved. An agreement was reached to secure long-term, affordable rents for the studio spaces. Although the m3 has moved to a space in the main building, and the surroundings of the artist's house have become dotted with micro-apartments and condominiums, there is room for artistic work. The House of Art has proven to be resilient and continues its cultural contribution.

The Kunstraum m3 now invites various artistic and cultural perspectives to explore the theme of "Resilience โ€“ How do we respond to challenging times?" Resilience applies to individuals as well as organizations or societies distinguished by their ability to adapt and transform, especially under challenging conditions. Are artists called upon to be particularly resilient? What creative possibilities lie in dealing with adversity? How will resilience manifest in the context of future threats such as climate change? This exploration encompasses both psychological resilience and adaptability in challenging circumstances.
