sammlung boros collection

how many times the function of a building can be changed? how unrelated can they be?

sammlung boros was designed by karl bonatz in 1941 and since then it’s been used as an air-raid shelter, a war prison, a textile warehouse, an imported tropical fruits warehouse, a techno music and fetish party club, a theatre stage, an erotic trade fair, a new year’s party place and a corporation building.

today it’s an amazing art gallery that can be visited only by reservation and only with guides—no pictures allowed inside. the top floor is the amazing house of christian boros—the owner of the building and collections.
