Mayer Pavilion is a project space located in a "social studio" in Kreuzberg what in German is called WBS Wohnberechtigungsschein. The word is long but the story is short. The name comes from Andreas Mayer which is the fake name that the artist and founder Andrea Mineo used to get an apartment-studio after eight months of unsuccessful searches and have been two times victim of discrimination from the housing market. Andrea eventually choose to change his profile name into Andreas Mayer in all searching house platforms. In a week he received numerous invitations to view apartments and eventually got the one in Kreuzberg. Started as an experiment for his documentary film now his apartment-studio become a project space hosting exhibitions projects with artists from all around the world. Mayer Pavilion has become for the artistic community in Berlin a symbol of overcoming social obstacles through the use of creativity, humor and inventiveness. Mayer Pavilion is a space for art and active discourse, located in a social studio within our Kreuzberg neighbourhood. We produce, host and collaborate on a range of formats such as exhibitions, performances, screenings, podcasts & residences. Mayer Pavillon’s purpose is to create a space for artistic expression, conversation, learning and engagement.
