Fluentum – initiated by software entrepreneur Markus Hannebauer – is a platform for the production, collection, and presentation of contemporary art with a strong focus on time-based media such as film and video. Fluentum is located in Berlin-Dahlem in the former main building of a military facility built in 1936-38 for the German Luftwaffe, which served as the headquarters of the U.S. Army from 1945 to 1994. The Berlin Airlift was organized here. Over the past three years, the historic building on Clayallee has been extensively redesigned by the Berlin architects Sauerbruch Hutton for use as an exhibition and private space. At regular intervals, Fluentum organizes changing exhibitions in this dedicated space, showing works not only from its own collection, but also in curated solo shows with selected artists.

Arthur de Ganay

Köpenicker Str. 10A, 10997 Berlin

Public guided tour is given once a month.

Timetable and registration: Website and by appointment.



Arthur de Ganay already started collecting photography while studying architecture in Paris during the mid-1990s. It was his encounter with the photographic oeuvre of Hiroshi Sugimoto in 1995 that brought about a veritable turning-point and persuaded him to start collecting contemporary art. The collection convinces with its strong artists and concentrates on large-format photographic works investigating the thematic of landscape and architecture. In the Köpenicker Straße, in what used to be a jam factory perched on the banks of the river Spree, he has found the perfect space to show the collection.

Sammlung Haubrok

Exhibitions are temporary held in different venues.

Please visit the website for more information.

T: +49 (0)172 210 95 25, Website



A work of Raoul de Keyser, purchased in 1988, was the starting point of the Haubrok Collection. Over the first few years, the collection’s focus was set on paintings. However, at the turn of the new millennium, works by Günter Förg, including photographies and sculptures, gradually put the emphasis on embracing conceptual arts – now focal point of the haubrok collection. Important artists, among others, are Jonathan Monk, Christopher Williams, Carol Bove and Wade Guyton. The latest interest of collecting can be seen in conceptual artists of the first generation. Some of the collection’s most important works were transferred to the Haubrok Foundation in 2008.

The committed collector supports artistic positions that intend to polarize.

The Library Berlin /
Sammlung Christian Kaspar Schwarm

Visitation permitted only occasionally.

Please inquire by E-mail



The Library Logo

Beginning in 1900, the Klub der Kommenden—an interdisciplinary group of artists, authors, and scholars with an eye for “the new”—would meet not far from Nollendorfplatz. Inspired by this idea, strategy consultant Christian Kaspar Schwarm initiated a library in the same neighborhood as a creative melting pot: the centerpiece is more than 5 000 artist publications and non-fiction books, nearly all published in the twenty-first century—supplemented by rotating works of concept-based and political art from Schwarm’s collection, by Slavs & Tatars and others. A permanent sound installation by Bertrand Fleuret is based on the tradition of Japanese “jazz kissaten” (jazz clubs), where, after 1945, Western music was introduced to the Land of the Rising Sun and played through elaborate, lively loudspeaker systems. It’s one of many examples that reflect the library’s philosophy: “Innovation often comes from skillfully combining existing phenomena.”

Additional to his library, following his passion and curiosity for collecting, Kaspar Schwarm co-founded Independent Collectors, a global guide and online platform to private collections of contemporary art.

Ulrich Seibert

Oranienburgerstr. 32 (Heckmannhöfe, Vorderhaus 1. OG), 10117 Berlin

Visits by appointment. Please inquire by Email



The reason to show this small, very special collection of Ulrich Seibert in his new showroom in „Heckmannhöfe, Berlin Mitte“ is the niche. What are you collecting? Pop-comic-surrealism! Aha…??? Does that exist after all? It's hard to explain. You'll know it when you see it. Anyway, this is something rather rare in Berlin. No conceptual art, no gestural abstraction, no rough brush. The stuff is colorful, figurative, bizarre, slightly surreal and many of the artists come from the West Coast (so called "Lowbrow"). And yes: art should be fun.


Sammlung Springmeier

Kolmarer Str. 1, 10405 Berlin

Viewing possible with guided tours only. Make an appointment via Website.



The Springmeier Collection encompasses works in diverse media and is international in scope. Founded in the 1990s, the collection’s objective is to identify important artists of the modern day and to apply personal criteria in bringing their works together. Artists such as Jeanette Lavariere, Uri Tzaig, and Fred Lonidier feature alongside current stars of contemporary art such as Jordan Wolfson, Phyllida Barlow, and Claire Fontaine. The collection is displayed in the Springmeier’s home, creating a lived-in experience of art aligned with domesticity.
