An underworld seething with monsters

An eerily bizarre sight can be found under Berlin.  Right next to the Hackesche Höfe is the monster cabinet of the Dead Chickens. Pass through an arched gateway covered in street art to come upon Haus Schwarzenberg, with dungeons where the monsters of your nightmares come alive.

Artist Hannes Heiner calls his installations automatic theatre and his creatures recycled from various waste materials have names like “Little Three Eye”, “Orangina” or “Pippi” and tell stories inspired by the artist’s fantasy.
