This old impressive building was once constructed as a shopping mall over 100 years ago. In the past century it was used as a showroom for the General Electric Company, an office for the Nazis, a school for economics, a cinema and a lot more. Due to the damages from the second World War and the deterioration over the decades after it was supposed to be taken down, but the artist initiative Tacheles saved it and used it as an artist commune for years to come. It was a colorful space full of murals and scultures in the backyard that also hosted a bar, a club and a cinema. Unfortunately the commune as well as the gastronomy was evicted and now the building remains an empty ruin with an uncertain future.
