Gallery Mutter Fourage

The hundred-year-old grain and fodder store  which dates back to the founding of Wannsee and in the 1970's was still trading, is now decorated with articles from southern Europe. Pots and statuettes made of Italian terracotta, grapevines and citrus trees lie like a second layer over the roughly plastered pastoral idyll. The rural manufacturing spirit is still alive, both in the wholefood shop and cafe which have moved into the former stables, and in the courtyard with its potted plants, ceramics, baskets and garden furniture. The present owner, - an actor and nephew of the fodder merchant, had more in mind than simply creating a Mediterranean atmosphere. At the heart of the Galerie Mutter Fourage is a dense programme of events marked by sumptuous market festivals in spring and autumn. Exhibitions are mounted in an outbuilding which has been converted into a galery and concerts, readings and theatrical performances take place in the large barn. The galery is particularly concerned with artistic and cultural themes which can be traced back to this south-western tip of Berlin. Their most recent in-house publication for instance, is devoted to Wannseer gardens. Max Liebermann had a summer-house built for him at the Grosse Wannsee in 1910 and is honoured with a birthday performance every year on July 20th. This initiative should help move forward plans to turn the painter's house into a cultural centre. It is currrently used by a water- sports club.
