about ausland

ausland is a non-commercially run venue in berlin for music and performance and related public and non-public events. ausland is also a workspace for local, national and international artists and projects. ausland holds on the average three shows a week and is run by a group of up to 6 people, who all have a high degree of autonomy in deciding which band is to play here or which performace should take place. or which film is shown or which lecture read. the focus clearly is on experimental, non-mainstream, demanding, kind of weird stuff which either makes you comfortable or makes you leave the place before you've even finished your first (cheap) drink...

devoted to this weird stuff since over 5 years, the staff of ausland tries its best to respect the human need of consuming arts in its finest forms. there are practical constraints, as always in heavenly life, coming (i.e.) from the limited amount of money, or time; from the limited number of people (avail)able to realize special projects, or maybe just from the absence of a holy spirit.

but, who comes here, might be saved on the spur of the moment.
