It’s one of those places in Berlin that you really only go to, when you’re taking visitors. That being said, Kunsthaus Tacheles is still an interesting place that holds a special thing for me … the first night J and I met, we hung out there for a few drinks after the party at Deathless (the skateshop / gallery where she worked at the time, where we’d met earlier) wrapped up for the evening.
A few years later, I slapped a few paste-ups in there. Some are already gone and some covered up, but I discovered when we’d taken one of J’s friends from uni to have a look recently, that one is still in place.
Tacheles has been around forsome 20 years now but seems to be at the beginning of the end … the business concerns took the golden egg but the artists are sticking around. For how long is not sure. Even though it has become more of a tourist trap than anything else, it’s still an integral case in Berlin’s wave of gentrification that threatens to remove all the character this city has to offer.
