artevent / Nation of Gondwana
The company artevent GmbH plans and designs a variety of events, as well as currently owning four bars.
artevent’s clients have included major and prestigious companies such as Nokia and Cap Gemini, as well as Berlin-based theatres and arts venues, including the “Hebbel am Ufer” theatre and the “Sophiensaele”.
artevent has also been working together with the well-known Chaos Computer Club (CCC) for many years now, and is one of the key organisers of the “Chaos Communication Camp” held every four years.
The company has its origins in the rapidly-changing Berlin of the early Nineties.
In the course of the historic events centred around German Reunification, the city of Berlin came to offer great creative freedom for artists and innovators.
Inspired by the all-pervading atmosphere of change and possibility, Markus Ossevorth and Marc-André Janizewski founded the Pyonen label.
This was an initial platform for organising their first, smaller parties and events.
A regular series of events, which were continuously growing in size and therefore required ever more planning, led to the decision to found the events agency artevent GmbH in May 1998.
In terms of gastronomy too, Ossevorth and Janizewski have blazed a trail in Berlin’s bar culture.
This began with the opening of the “Bar 23” in the Prenzlauer Berg district in 2001. It was followed by the “Zur Fetten Ecke” (2005) and the “Tante Lisbeth” (2010) in Kreuzberg.
In 2014, the pair opened their fourth bar, the “Zum Böhmischen Dorf” in Neukölln. What makes this bar so special is the tank beer from Pilsner Urquell served here, the first place in Germany to do so. Tank beer is Pilsner Urquell in its most authentic form. Tank beer is seen as a speciality, as it is unpasteurised and isn’t carbonated when tapped.
