In February 2012, the listed building of the Ehemalige Jüdische Mädchenschule – a former Jewish girls’ school in Auguststrasse in Berlin opened as a space for art and cuisine. Following historically suitable restoration, the building was made available to the public after years of vacancy. The former classrooms and corridors present changing exhibitions by different actors from the art world. Camera Work Contemporary opened a Gallery on the first floor. Michael Fuchs Galerie exhibits works in the former assembly hall on the third floor. He shares the floor with EIGEN + ART Lab, an exhibition format for international artists.
In the former gymnasium, the restaurant Pauly-Saal offers guests regional and seasonal German cuisine during the day and in the evenings – adjoined is the Pauly-Bar. In the private dining rooms, The Kosher Classroom serves three times per week certified kosher cuisine, including a traditional Sabbath dinner. Mogg & Melzer Delicatessen sells homemade pastrami and other meat specialties, as well as products from the Pauly-Saal and The Kosher Classroom – to eat in or to take away.
