Every year since 2016, artists have been invited to bring the ruins of the Franciscan Minister into the light of the present and to open up new perspectives for them.

The Ruins

The ruin of the Franciscan monastery church is one of the last preserved testimonies to Berlin's founding history. It is one of the most important architectural monuments of the city, open to the public and used for cultural purposes.

The different site-specific formats of contemporary art deal with the architecture and history of the ruins of the former Franciscan monastery church, but also with current urban planning processes in the area of the Klosterviertel/Molkenmarkt.
