Clinker Lounge - Space for Musical Creativity

Since the middle of the year 2018, the excellent acoustics of the Clinker Lounge boast an array of chamber music from a variety of ensembles. Clinker Lounge Concerts, alongside the established Literaturstation series at the Clinker Lounge, host chamber concerts from different ensembles and in different constellations twice a month. The intimacy and closeness with which the music making can be experienced by the audience in this atmospheric hall, is a core value of the concert series and audience members may meet the artists both pre and post-concert in order to talk more closely about the music, performance design and, or other artistic themes.

The BACKFABRIK dates back to the end of the 19th century. It was on this site that the brothers Aschinger built the headquarters of their empire supplying pea soup and “Schrippen”. By the mid-1920s, 4.000 people were employed in the workshops and food production of the Backfabrik.

In 1947 began the VEB BAKO and the “Ostschrippe” eerea, from which the baking factory derives its name. Its huge baking machines Schrippen and bread for the whole of East Berlin. Since the reunification of east and west the venue hosted a colourful array of different ventures. In 1990/91 Horst Schießer - known by the acquisition of the "new home" - turned the baking factory into Cityback, which had to close its doors again in 1997. This time was followed by three exciting years of temporary use as an off-location. The "Casino" and the "Cookies" attracted many hundreds of people each week. Alternative workshops, a skating rink and much more found their temporary home here.
In February of the year 2000, when Hargen M. Bartels together with R.E.M.M. (Real Estate Merger & Management) acquired the site and engaged Architect team Bartels, Tritscher & Kocher with the transformation of the historic building of the wholesale bakery into a place for creative industry. Exactly two years later, in February 2002, Bundestag President Wolfgang Thierse opened the BACKFABRIK with a big celebration.
The BACKFABRIK is situated between Alexanderplatz and Kollwitzplatz, bordering Prenzlauer Berg and the historic center of Berlin - is a historic industrial building. Former wholesale bakery turned venue comprising 25,000 m2 combines quality of work with quality of life.
