History of Studios ID
The Intelligence Department Studios are located in former buildings of the operating-technical sector of the
GDR in Berlin Alt-Hohenschönhausen. Built in 1985 within the restricted area by the Ministry of State
Security, they were used to develop, manufacture and maintain any spyware, including interception and
surveillance equipment, cameras and stealth equipment.
Today, about 270 people work here as a creative and heterogeneous tenant community for international
artists, designers, photographers, architects and sculptors.
Exhibition in the “Rechenzentrum” or, data center
Seven artists from Studios ID are now presenting their work as guests of the Rechenzentrum Potsdam as part
of the group exhibition "brAndenburg beRlin inTernational.
Adalbert Fahrenhorst - as a representative of the Rechenzentrum Potsdam - got to know Berlin's largest
studio community during the “Lange Nacht der Bilder” Long Night of Pictures Lichtenberg 2018 and saw
similarities in the architecture of the buildings of the Studio ID and the Rechenzentrum as well as in their use.
He encouraged a mutual exchange and together we developed a concept for the realisation of a guest
exhibition here in Potsdam. It is planned to continue and expand the partnership in the future.
