Fluentum is a non-profit platform for the production, collection and presentation of contemporary art with a focus on time-based media, especially moving images. It was founded in 2010 by Berlin software entrepreneur Markus Hannebauer. Fluentum is located in the main building of a former military facility on Clayallee in Berlin-Dahlem, built during the Nazi era and originally used as an administrative and barracks complex by the German Air Force. After the end of World War II, the building served as headquarters of the United States Army from 1945 to 1994—the famous ›Berliner Luftbrücke‹ was directed from here.
After a phase of redesign by Berlin-based architects Sauerbruch Hutton, the listed building today serves as an exhibition and private space. On over 600 square meters, not only works from Fluentum's own collection are made accessible to the public; the focus is rather on thematically related group exhibitions and extensive solo shows.
