Artist in the place of the Industry | ExRotaprint (2007-2106)
Lecture by Daniela Brahm and Les Schliesser

ExRotaprint is the former site of the Rotaprint printing press manufacturing plant in Berlin’s Wedding district. Following the insolvency of Rotaprint in 1989, the 10,000 square meter premises fell into a state of neglect while lingering in the redevelopment line.

In 2004, artists Daniela Brahm and Les Schliesser formulated a concept for taking over the property by renters already on site. The goal was to develop the location to serve a heterogeneous mix of Arbeit, Kunst, Soziales (work, art, and community). Following grueling negotiations with the Berlin Senate and Liegenschaftsfonds (real estate funds), the renter-founded ExRotaprint gGmbH took over the site in 2007.
