Tonight it was announced that the me Collectors Room Berlin, a valued and popular exhibition venue in the center of the gallery district in Mitte, will permanently close its rooms in Auguststraße in the year of its 10th anniversary.
The Olbricht Foundation will continue to focus on the support of cultural education projects for children and young people. In the future, this mediation work in the area of cultural education will be relocated from Berlin to Essen, the place of residence of Claudia and Thomas Olbricht, initiators of the me Collectors Room and the Wunderkammer, which is also housed there.
After extensive renovation work, the Peter Janssen Collection – one of the world’s most extensive collections on the aesthetics, craftsmanship and art of war of the Samurai – will move into Auguststraße 68, probably starting in the fall of 2020.
