In 2019, German artist and filmmaker Ralf Schmerberg discovered the landmarked area in Berlin Oberschöneweide. Together with his team, a concept was developed to create space for art, innovative music, spirituality, science and community. In 2020, MaHalla was founded as a GmbH & Co. KG.
In the summer of 2022, the cultural center is scheduled to open and offer a diverse program. Exhibitions, concerts, productions, symposia, fairs, workshops, festivals, film screenings, readings or parties will take place on the 9000 square meter area.
