A space organized by and open for cultural and social initiatives. It’s located in the formerly club “Wiese” 在 WH22 / ARM area in Werner-Hilpert-Straße 22, 卡塞尔. The space will be used during documenta15 but aims to establish a space for grassroots initiatives and culture even after documenta.
The space is based on self-organization and is supported by different collectives from Kassel. Each of these groups will occupy the space for some days – organizing events, concerts, 工作坊, performances, exhibitions, discussions, etc. The collectives and individuals using the space are independent from each other: we share some ideas and values but also disagree on others.
It’s an open space: aka network invites collectives and groups to use the space. Please get in touch!
