The exhibition VISITING INKEN BALLER AND HINRICH BALLER at the DAZ will be extended: after a break in May, we will open again from June 02 to June 26, 2022.

In their joint creative period between 1966 and 1989, Inken Baller and Hinrich Baller designed striking buildings in the former West Berlin with an independent, expressive and distinct architectural language. While these buildings polarized the professional world at the time, their projects were accepted by Berliners and remain an expression of unconventional housing construction to this day.
The exhibition, curated by the Berlin collective ufoufo – urban fragment observatory, stages a sensual revisit to the inhabited spaces: recent interior photographs show filigree, permeability, the integration of common areas into the residential buildings and their unusual floor plan solutions. Accompanied by the audio recordings of today’s residents and archival material, the exhibition documents architecture that has been used, lived in and experienced, posing the question of what today’s housing construction can learn from this open understanding of space.
