Co-Verlag has partnered up with the pre-exisiting 111 zeitgenössischer Ort für Kunst/a contemporary location for art. The art and studio house Torstraße 111 is one of the oldest buildings still remaining in Berlin's city center of Mitte. This location is key, since most non-commercial art spaces have been forced out of the city center and this area is populated with upscale housing, boutiques, galleries and hotels. The curators and directors of the past one year space: MMX Open Art Venue- Rebecca Loyche & Jonathan Gröger run the Co-Verlag project and will continue to bring together exciting exhibitions, film screenings, art related talks, art resource events and an overall support for the art community. Over a year of renovating the entire 5- story house to improve the overall functionality of the space and open it up to its original floor plan.
The space will feature 2 residency spaces with bedrooms and adjoining studio space. Several artists and creative companies already work in the building. The ground floor features a 2-story high exhibition space on West and East sides. There is an internal courtyard and an old factory ruin in the back of the location that has been restored and is a seasonal exhibition space. Close by in the neighborhood is KW, Hamburger Bahnhof, C/O Berlin and a street full of commercial galleries on Linienstraße.
