The Postfuhramt (formerly: Imperial Postfuhramt) is a representative brick building on Oranienburger Strasse in the Mitte district of Berlin. It was completed in 1881 and was one of the largest official buildings in Berlin at the time. It has been a landmark protected building since 1975. I’m sure some of you have been to c/o Berlin when it was still there. Beyond the curated contents the modern photo-gallery was stunning for its location in the former royal post office. The old brick building from 1881 hosted not only the gallery, but a club (former Rodeo, now Department) on a prime corner of Oranienburger Straße. Every vernissage was packed with people.
They’ve since relocated to Amerika Haus in Charlottenburg. Due to reconstructions and renovations, the Postfuhramt is currently still in progress. Before c/o closed their temporary spaces in this extravagant building, we decided to go on a tour. Marcus captured the textures of the floor that we might never see again.
