The bunker found in Reinhardtstrasse in Mitte is quiet an unusual location among art spaces in Berlin. The bunker was built above the earth and it currently belongs to Christian Boros, who shows his art collection here on a rotation basis.
Before the bunker became a venue for an art collection, it used to host illegal parties and incognito encounters. Traces of graffiti and paint from those times can still be seen today on the interior walls. You can only visit the collection during the weekend and in a guided group.
I love the use of bare concrete with the splashes of colour and luxury which can be seen in the apartment as well as the gallery. I especially love the plum chairs against the concrete and the use of faux fur throws. I think there is something very intimate about the apartment even though it’s huge.
