Hallen 4 is the fourth instalment of the autumn art event hosted at Wilhelm Hallen in Reinickendorf since 2020. It originated when a small group of Berlin gallerists approached entrepreneur and art collector Philipp Solf and Omer Arbel (Bocci) in the summer of that same year to join forces and to host them for an exhibition at Wilhem Hallen. Within a month they put together the first edition of what is now an annual art event. The first and second editions comprised of a group of commercial galleries showing large-scale art works in the mostly unrenovated spaces at Wilhelm Hallen. The third instalment, subtitled Reinickendorf Rules, expanded and welcomed 15 galleries and other partners in a more festival-style setting celebrating contemporary art.
About Wilhelm Hallen
The former Winkelhof iron foundry, now Wilhelm Hallen, consists of a listed ensemble of various halls, loft spaces and offices in a beautiful red brick architecture with a total floor space of over 20,000 square meters. Designed between 1898 and 1918 by the Pankow mason Christian Friedrich Malingriaux and built 1902 by the architect Hermann Streubel, the factory halls actually underwent only a few changes - in the 1950s, a few fixtures were added as well as the addition of a gatehouse. Since the foundry's closure in 2014, the existing structure of the ensemble has remained untouched.
