La Datcha is a project space and Schrebergarten located in Volkspark Rehberge (Berlin Wedding) coordinated by Canadian artist Jessica Groome. During the summer months, La Datcha hosts local and international artists for projects, exhibitions, screenings and residencies. Since 2018, the garden offers a place to establish roots and to cross-pollinate beyond the conventions of a typical gallery setting.
Operating on the fringes of the city, La Datcha has relied on word of mouth and close connections to persist. Despite a lengthy dormancy due to the pandemic, La Datcha has continued to grow, quietly within itself, experiencing a restorative night’s sleep.
We look forward to re-awakening with new programming in summer 2022.
