Resignifying Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW)

HKW ventures to resignify each public space in its historic building with the names of women from different worlds who have contributed to the betterment of them.


Equal participation in and accessibility to exhibitions, cultural events, and performances is important to HKW. Here you will find detailed information on barrier-free transportation to and from HKW and the forms of accessibility within the building.
