The ensemble of buildings that comprise the Akademie der Künste (Academy of Arts) on Hanseatenweg was designed and built by Berlin architect and later Academy president Werner Düttmann. Today, the buildings are all protected cultural monuments. With 2000 m2 of exhibition space, a studio including a stage and two adjoining performance halls, club rooms and atelier flats, the structure located on the periphery of Tiergarten is an ideal space for artistic productions and exhibitions, for theatre, music and dance performances, for film and video projections, or for readings and art talks. During the Berlinale, the Akademie der Künste will serve as the venue for Forum Expanded, as well as for some Forum screenings.
