Linienstraße in Berlin’s Mitte district was built in 1705 as circumvallation, a temporary wall to shield the city between Oranienburger Straße and Große Frankfurt Straße, today’s Karl-Marx-Allee. Generally known among contemporaries as ‘Linie’ the street was eventually renamed Linienstraße in 1821. SILLER contemporary (former Kunstraum Linie) is a testament to that historic boundary separating and connecting past and present spaces. In the old foundry, the boundaries between the art space and contemporary art flowed anew, whether sculpture with printing technology (Martin Werthmann) or 3D photography with object art (Andrei Loginov).
