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. The artspace of the old foundry opens up a liminal space where existing boundaries in contemporary art are constantly challenged exhibiting works fusing sculpture and typography (Martin Werthmann) or 3D photography with object art (Andrej Loginov).
