GERMANY: Streetart Berlin – Berlin Mitte – Karl Marx Allee 1 – Haus der Statistik

The former seat of the State Central Administration of Statistics (SZS) of the GDR became the property of the Federal Agency for Real Estate Tasks (BIMA) with the reunification of Germany. After the fall of the Wall, the “Haus der Statistik” (=House of Statistics) was used, among other things, by the office of the Federal Commissioner for the records of the State Security Service, also known as the Gauck or later Birthler authority. The authorities stayed there until 2008. Since then, the 45,000 m² building complex has been vacant.

The existing building fabric was classified as unmarketable and plans for demolition were formulated in favor of new urban planning. In 2015, an art campaign was staged: the “Allianz bedrohter Berliner Atelierhäuser” (=Alliance of Threatened Berlin Studio Houses), in short AbBA. A group of committed artists put a large poster in the style of an official building sign on the facade overnight: “Art, culture and social affairs”. This brought the discussion about the future of the building complex to the public. In autumn 2015 the Berlin Senate organized a workshop for the urban re-evaluation of the Alexanderplatz. In this context, the Haus der Statistik initiative was formed, an alliance of various Berlin actors: social and cultural institutions and associations, artist collectives, architects, foundations and associations.

The initiative developed a concept that envisaged the cost-effective conversion and expansion of the building complex into affordable housing (including for refugees) as well as work spaces for art, culture, social affairs and education. In order to have a legal form for contractual cooperation with potential partners, ZUsammenKUNFT Berlin, Cooperative for Urban Development, emerged from the initiative in 2016.   –  HAUS DER STATISTIK
