Following the Swedish contemporary photography museum’s expansion from Stockholm to New York and Tallinn last year, Fotografiska has announced its plans for a new branch in Berlin’s Kunsthaus Tacheles.

The museum’s fourth location, set to debut late 2022, has a rich history, having served as a department store, a Nazi prison, a post-Cold War artists’ colony, a gallery and sculpture park. The 59,000 square-foot space will be respectfully renovated by international architects Herzog & de Meuron, who will preserve the damage sustained to the building during World War II whilst making over certain rooms and the exterior facade.

Fotografiska does not want to be a repository of art in silent, holy halls, but instead a place of vibrant, creative interaction and promote constructive dialogue with the community outside its doors”, wrote majority-owner of Fotografiska ,Yoram Roth.
