Venue and Connections

Haus der Kulturen der Welt

TYPO Berlin takes place at House of World Cultures, which is located right next to the Federal Chancellor’s Office. The conference building is a classic example of modern architecture in Berlin and is nicknamed “Schwangere Auster” (“pregnant oyster”) by native Berliners. The international contemporary arts are at home here and it is a forum for debate and discourse on current issues.
