An open space organized by and open for cultural and social initiatives. It’s located in the formerly club “Wiese” at WH22 / ARM area in Werner-Hilpert-Straße 22, Kassel. The space was used during documenta15 but aimed to establish a space for grassroots initiatives and culture even after documenta. Now the open space is still maintained by aka collective. The space is based on self-organization and solidarity: aka collective is providing the basic infrastructure and space for concerts, exhibitions, talks, etc. The aka collective invites people and groups  to use the space for all kind of non-commercial events. If you have an idea, please get in touch:
