Das Bedürfnis e.V. is a non-profit art and culture association in Halle (Saale). We are a group of students, architects, designers and artists and have made it our mission to repurpose unused urban space. Probably the smallest architectural monument in the city of Halle, the former public toilet on Merseburger Straße, is the first building that we want to transform. On the 13 square meters we want to generate experimental exhibition formats and make the place more lively through a diverse and frequently changing cultural and event offer. Historic preservation and sustainable use are to form a unity in the process.
A public discourse and project space is to be created, which will culturally enrich Halle's southern city center and encourage participation.
