Wolfen, the Haubrok Foundation, and Kantine: Tobias Tanner’s Berlin

By Whitewaller

June 7, 2016

The ninth edition of the Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art opened over the weekend. In case you’re in town, or plan on visiting in advance of Art Basel next week, we checked in with Tobias Tanner, the founder of Valise, about his favorite spots in Berlin.

“The triangular ‘square’ between Auguststrasse & Gipsstrasse in Berlin, Mitte is a gem of a spot to relax while touring the area. The bookstore Do You Read Me is around the corner, and architecture firm Chipperfield‘s Kantine is also in the area. Jaqueline Huste‘s Wolfen boutique with hand-knit sweaters is up the street, along with various cafés, bars, and endless shopping and cultural hotspots. Two favorites are the Jüdische Maedchenschule and the Hay Design Emporium.”

“I’ll go see the current exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof and take a stroll along the Landwehr Canal, just off the Admiralsbrücke in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin.”

“Experience the architectural differences and feelings between the former West & East Berlin. Each district has its own look and feel, which is defined by the history of the city.”

“I love the incredible private art collections and spaces which are emerging in Berlin. My favorites include the Haubrok Foundation, the Feuerle Collection, and the Sammlung Boros.”
