Kunsthaus Tacheles

This is Kunsthaus Tacheles, or Art House Tacheles. These days it is a deteriorating shell, but like much of this sort of of complex its history makes fascinating reading, from days as an early style of department store, to being the central office for the Nazi SS in WWII. Currently owned by a bank ( HSH Nordbank ) it will be fascinating to see what eventually happens to it. The mural asking “How long is now” seems a perfect question for the complex.
