The Festival Outpost on Helmholzplatz


Platzhaus is located both on the outskirts and right in the middle of Helmholtzplatz, a former public bathroom facility that has developed into a neighborly place within the neighborhood where people with low socio-economic potential can also experience social participation. This is a house whose contours were outlined in drawings from the last decade and whose architecture remains flexible in the sense of togetherness and discussion. Since association Helmholzplatz e.V. first saw the light of day in 2002, WE have operated Platzhaus, located at Helmholtzplatz 0. Today, it reveals the traces of unusual ownership structures and very different existences marked by strongly contrasting living environments.

WE are and were human beings from these worlds who have voluntarily accompanied and carried this fragile project through the last wild times of the "development east to west" to the economic state of late capitalism. It is an opportunity for everyone who wants to be a part of things and has time to take a stance in support of peace, solidarity and utopia.
