Map

What once was the seedy underbelly of Berlin, Germany's most boho berg, has reemerged as the center of the city's constantly in-flux art scene. After being severely damaged by allied bombs after World War II, all the artists moved east. The neighborhood, in Berlin's West Tiergarten area, held a couple hundred galleries and art spaces until then. As the economic swing of desire swings back the other direction, more galleries are finding cheap, clandestine space to open along the Potsdamer Strasse--most galleries remain out of immediate street view, behind tacky clothing shops and Turkish cafes.
