The provisional center of this year’s Project Space Festival is an open green space – a small, isolated paradise at the rear of Theaterhaus Mitte. A babble of speech and song from Berlin’s independent theater scene emanates from the building’s rehearsal rooms, while on the other side of the space, a line of trees provides a screen for the local housing. An overgrown stage caravan, an abandoned circus tent, and tracks in the grass suggest that the space is used only rarely, and even then, on a temporary basis.

The Project Space Festival has calculated the geographic Center of Minimum Distance between all project spaces in Berlin (including those not participating in the Festival). By chance, this Center happens to be here – at this vanishing point in the heart of Berlin. This is also the site of the Festival’s vernissage, which takes the form of a grand picnic:
