The mission of LiTE-HAUS Galerie + Projektraum is to encourage cross cultural communication by connecting people through collaborative art - both domestic and international. The goal of the exhibitions, events, projects, and workshops we present addresses various environmental issues. The definition of "environmental" goes beyond ecological concerns and involves the diverse cultural environment of modern cities. Berlin is a mosaic of ethnicities, religions, and economic classes. Like many large metropolitan cities its diversity is both energizing, yet sometimes polarizing. LiTE-HAUS will attempt to address provocative issues using art and culture as a tool for building bridges. Through eclectic collaborations and pushing the boundaries of art’s definition we hope to bring people together and encourage conversation; something we feel is much needed in modern Germany. By forming a network with global partners in New York, Ukraine, Luxembourg, Iceland, Barcelona, and the Netherlands, we will present the work of international artists and offer our community an opportunity to expand their knowledge of art. Further, the exploration of culture is encouraged through these collaborations between artists and residents. We want LiTE-HAUS to be a beacon for the diverse Neukölln community we call home.
