The "Werkstatt Exilmuseum" opened in Berlin Charlottenburg at the end of March 2023 to great public interest. The building at Fasanenstraße 24 is a preparatory step with the construction of the new Exilmuseum at Anhalter Bahnhof in mind. The workshop offers space to actively shape the development of the upcoming museum. From now on, interested parties can contribute ideas and gain insights into the work of the foundation.
The " Werkstatt Exilmuseum" is a centre for questions about exile - then and now. It offers a platform for a wide variety of actors in the field of exile and is a participatory laboratory, exhibition and event venue. In the " Werkstatt Exilmuseum ", all interested parties will find a suitable opportunity to participate.
Herta Müller, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and initiator of the idea for an exile museum in Berlin, and former Federal President Joachim Gauck are accompanying the project and soliciting support. The Stiftung Exilmuseum Berlin has already raised 20 million euros in donations for the museum to be in Berlin Kreuzberg, but another 40 million euros are still needed. By making the plans visible in the "Werkstatt Exilmuseum", the willingness to donate and political support are to be increased. The opening of the museum at Anhalter Bahnhof is planned for 2026.
From 21 July 2023, a six-meter-high information tower at Anhalter Bahnhof. Visible from afar and located on the plot next to the portico ruins, it will serve to bring attention to the project in planning for the site. The tower is also intended to inform the public about Exilmuseum, encourage participation and encourage donations.
Fasanenstr. 24, 10719 Berlin
