The Berlin-based organization Kunst-Stoffe - Zentralstelle für wiederverwendbare Materialien - e.V., founded in 2006, is dedicated to an artistic, aesthetic and sociological exploration of reuse and second hand culture. It maintains a large collection of used, discarded and surplus materials (for example fabric, colour, cardboard, metal, wood, foam, foil, plastics..) and makes them available as a sustainable resource for creative upcycling.
Unwanted reusable items are donated by businesses, individuals and organizations throughout the Berlin area and gathered in our warehouse where artists, teachers, social projects and creative workers enjoy the large variety of items and the small prices of our changing inventory that invites to discover its hidden treasures.
In addition Kunst-Stoffe provides well equipped workshops for wood, metal and textile and offers educational trainings in creative reuse and sustainable strategies.
Kunst-Stoffe is a collection and distribution center for scraps and trash that can be creatively reused for art and culture. Materials such as fabric, paint, metal, wood, tiles, plastic, foam, cardboard, etc. that are of no further use or value to their owners are collected in our warehouse where they are made available to artists, cultural, educational and social organizations.
By that, Kunst-Stoffe stimulates creativity and environmental awareness
• Waste Reduction
• Cultural Development
• Supporting Creativity
Educational Trainings and Opportunities:
• Workshops and projects of Kunst-Stoffe connect ecological education and creativity: Works of art, designed objects and utilitarian objects are arising from material scrap and waste of productional processes which would be declared as useless trash if we wouldn´t use them.
• Materials for ecological education
• Woodworking; metalworking; modeling; working with fabric
Cargo Bikes: Environmentally friendly mobility
• Kunst-Stoffe develops, builds and rents cargo bikes on favourable terms.
Artists in Residence: International artists realize projects at Kunst-Stoffe
Warehouse: Our assortement is changing permanently, so we want to invite you to pay us a visit and to be inspired on-site.
