Berlin’s abandoned Willner Brewery is expecting the same fate as many other locations in Berlin—an investor bought the areal and put an end to the countless cultural events that used to take place in the old buildings.
As a last tribute to this unique location a high-profiled artist collective created the LOST art festival during the last days before Christmas 2017.
Now imagine this abandoned brewery filled by 160 artists from the basement to the attic with all kinds of art for a 48h non-stop show. You walk from one room to the next and find an amazing piece in every corner.

I had the honor to document the exhibition ‘Labyrinth of Lies’ featuring the artist Sven Sauer and The Connor Brothers, that took place in an old abandoned brewery in Berlin last weekend.
For the online creative magazine WITNESS THIS, I took part in the first testing for the upcoming exhibition LABYRINTH OF LIES by Berlin artist Sven Sauer in collaboration with THE CONNOR BROTHERS end of May 2017 at Willner Brauerei in Berlin.
‘The installation explores the subconscious transformation of imagery from media into our collective and individual truths. The Labyrinth of Lies is an illuminated maze of umbrellas, referencing the so-called umbrella revolution—a non-violent protest for democracy that occurred throughout Asia in 2014 in which the protestants used umbrellas to shield themselves from police’s tear gas.’
