Graffiti on the wall of the Tacheles Kunsthaus which is an art gallery alternative collective on Oranienburger Straße in Mitte, Berlin. There are many ongoing art-related protests in Mitte as the local gov’t and corporations want to use the land for a bank, shopping center and/or parking lot.
On 4 April 2011 the owner HSH Nordbank scheduled an eviction, but it was not carried out. Instead, on the next day, the gastronomy and cinema left the building peacefully in return for a payment of 1 Million Euros from an anonymous source. Eighty artists vowed to stay on with their ateliers and metal workshops. One week later, the sequestrator ordered an almost 3 m tall wall to be built, separating the Oranienburger Straße from the building’s courtyard. The future concept for the building remains undecided.
