The site

The imposing clinker brick building with the corner tower visible from afar has an eventful past. The construction of the "Bergbrauerei Hasenheide" begins in 1865 by the merchant and manufacturer Karl Gustav Eduard Kelch. After a two-year construction phase, it was inaugurated in 1867 and put into operation. The brewery works very successfully and also operates the large “New World” entertainment area, which is gaining popularity far beyond Berlin. After the Second World War, the serious damage was eliminated and the brewery started again. The "Löwenbrauerei - Böhmisches Brauhaus AG" is taken over by the Schultheiss brewery in 1955 and finally closed in 1975 due to lack of profitability. A little later, large parts of the brewery complex were demolished, and the administration building, the gatehouse and the master brewer's villa were preserved.

Various alternative use concepts are being developed and discussed as decay continues. After lengthy negotiations, the restoration and renovation work in the former administration building can begin in early 1990 and will continue until 1993. In October 1993 the “Meeting Place for Germans and Foreigners” was renamed “Workshop of Cultures” and opened under the sponsorship of the Wissmannstraße eV brewery association.

In 2019, the Senate Department for Culture and Europe announced a new sponsorship and was awarded to Kultur NeuDenken gUG on January 1, 2020. The house is now called Oyoun and serves as an epicenter for decolonial, queer feminist, migrant and diasporic perspectives.

Hermannplatz

The neighborhood

The former working-class district has changed significantly in the last few decades - like all of Berlin - the population has become more colorful, diverse and mixed. It is not uncommon for the area around Neukölln's Hermannplatz to be referred to as the trendy “Kreuzkölln” neighborhood. This also brings new challenges for the residents. Housing is in high demand, scarce and expensive, cafes and pubs bring life to the quarter, but celebration and the need for rest cannot always be reconciled. New ways of togetherness and tolerance are tried out and found.
