Gallery Mutter Fourage

Exotic Herb Garden


The hundred-year-old grain and fodder store which dates back to the founding of the Wannsee district (and was still trading in the 1970s), is now decorated with articles from southern Europe. 
Pots and statuettes made of Italian terracotta, grapevines and citrus trees lie like a second layer over the roughly-plastered pastoral idyll. The rural manufacturing spirit is still alive, both in the wholefood shop and stables café, and in the courtyard with its potted plants, ceramics, baskets and garden furniture. 
The present owner, an actor and nephew of the fodder merchant, had more in mind than simply creating a Mediterranean atmos- phere. At the heart of the Galerie Mutter Fourage, a dense pro- gramme of events is marked by sumptuous spring and autumn market festivals. Exhibitions are held in an outbuilding gallery, and concerts, readings and theatrical performances take place in the large barn. 
The gallery is particularly interested in artistic and cultural themes which can be traced back to this south-western tip of Berlin. An outstanding figure in this respect is the painter Max Liebermann, whose summerhouse and garden, recently converted into a museum, is not far from here, at the Große Wannsee.
