Torhaus Berlin



since 2019

Founding - and boardmember of Torhaus Berlin e.V.
The Torhaus is a self-organized and self-administered community space in the former 55m² porter's house at Tempelhof Airport. The porters from Tempelhof Airport once sat in the gatehouse. Now people are sitting here who work for a solidary, emancipatory and communal city for everyone.

The Torhaus is a platform for projects that try out creative forms of urban participation and joint design. What we learn here on a small scale from and with each other, we want to pass on to the large airport building and other urban development projects.

THF Radio


since 2019

Founding Member and organizer at THF Radio 

THF Radio a community radio“for Tempelhof and beyond for the whole of Berlin. We offer  musicians*, artists*, bands and DJ*s a chance to try out different formats. In addition, we  are a platform for urban political discourse through various interview and talk formats.  The radio is a department of the recently founded Torhaus Berlin e.V., and is correspondingly located in the Torhaus, the gatekeeper house inside the former airport.

Launched as a pilot project in the summer of 2019, THF Radio has been in permanent  operation since the beginning of 2020, with over 50 different regular shows per month  and over 80 radio producers involved. 

In our understanding, the community in „community radio“ can be understood in at least  two ways: First, the radio is carried by a community. Tasks, responsibilities and costs are  shared among all participants and only the common commitment makes it possible for  the radio to function as a non-commercial and free platform.

Secondly, THF Radio is a radio for a community, namely for Berlin citizens, who can use  the radio for their own formats and ideas. An important aspect for us is to make access  and participation in radio as easy as possible, especially for people who are underrepresented in the music and cultural scene and often have difficult access. We try to create  human, content and musical diversity in our program.
