Discover an underground labyrinth inhabited by mechanical monsters and meet British musician Andrew McGinn for tales of Haus history.

Most know Haus Schwarzenberg in Mitte as a colorful place for street art and creative spaces. And indeed, it is! But there’s much more to this magical place that will be discovered on our Obscura Day exploration with Cartwheel Art host Stephanie Wiegert.

Music & History: Meet Andrew McGinn, a British musician who sings in his Berlin-based band, “The Bar Sinister,” and is also the founder of “Kinder des Oubliettes,” a dark, musical puppet theatre. We’ll hear about Andrew’s work, his life as an artist in Berlin, and his relation to Haus Schwarzenberg. After that, we’ll get a historical insight into the history of The Haus.

Monsterkabinett: Enjoy a private tour of Monsterkabinett, a small museum created by the Berlin artist group “Dead Chickens.” Dramatic presentation and original music set the stage for the kinetic, digitally driven, and pneumatically powered mechanical monsters. These bizarre creatures sing, dance, and recite poetry in their habitat, telling tales of mysterious inner journeys.
