(english version first, die deutsche darunter)

Hafen 2 (meaning ‘harbor 2’) is a wild combination of artistic space, petting zoo, concert hall, café, arthouse cinema, meadow, art studio and house club. Sometimes even more than that: theater, fashion, debates, readings. There is no term of just one word to name it appropriately. For simplicity’s sake we call it “arts center”. Whenever there is time for another title: “interdisciplinary platform”.

We? This is a non-profit association “suesswasser e.V – Kunst und Kultur im Hafen Offenbach” (“Art and Culture in Offenbach’s harbor”). Plus a network of many associated creative minds.

Hafen 2 supports progressive art and culture. Both active participants and recipients are to gain profit and inspiration from this. We would like to further social abilities, to develop the ability to be critical, to enable self-realization, to practice the development of taste, to encourage involvement, to unmask pseudo-desires, to encourage modern life concepts.

Why do we do this? Because we love shaping things. This is what we do best and want most. We simply have to keep forming, designing, shaping. Rooms, places, the city. Right here: the surroundings, the grounds, the house. The exhibitions and the movie program. The days on the meadow and the concert nights. We enjoy changing this city through cultural activity. An industrial space became a social one: ‘This space became a place’.

The building itself is a former engine shed of the harbor railway. We love its architecture, even though some characteristics are inconvenient for the culture industry.
