After decades of bureaucratic wrangling, Berlin’s famous debt-ridden Tacheles arts squat has been cleared.
A large warehouse in Berlin’s bohemian Mitte district, it was occupied by artists after the fall of the Berlin Wall, and has since been a hub of alternative culture.
The building has a tumultuous history. It first opened as an elegant shopping arcade in 1909, but prisoners of war were said to have been held in the attic for interrogation purposes during World War II.
