Tommy Weissbecker Haus

Tommy Weissbecker Haus

The Tommy Weissbecker Haus is a landmark for Berlin’s alternative culture scene from the 1980s.

All sides of the house are covered with giant murals. One side shows a tower build of TV sets protesting the cable TV media. The mural uses an apocalyptic theme to emphasize the brainwashing by big business companies after the fall of the Berlin Wall. One section on the bottom of the mural is a legal wall for graffiti sprayers.

The House is named after Tommy Weissbecker. He was a RAF (Red Army Faction) terrorist and got shot by the police in March 1972. Since 1973 the house provides food, shelter and safety for homeless kids. There are a lot of social projects going on in the house and Café LINIE 1 is a meetingpoint for Berlin’s underground music scene.
