and during the events
Established in 2016, Hošek Contemporary is a gallery, performance space and art residency located on a historical boat in Mitte, Berlin. The focus is primarily on performing arts, site-specific installations and experimental sound works. The gallery hosts weekly improvised music sets, providing musicians an opportunity to showcase their sound skills to a Berlin audience.
Both the exhibition and performance spaces on MS Heimatland can be rented for art or business events. We have a range of opportunities for weddings, BBQs, concerts, art openings, film screenings, stage performances, theatre productions or film & photo shoots. Overlooking the city’s skyline, the modern urbanism and the idyllic natural setting right in the heart of Berlin create a very unique atmosphere.
