We demand! Wishes and Demands for a New Healthcare System
Workshop Sunday, 15th of January 2023, from 3 – 5:30 at Gropiusbau Berlin
We believe that we need a New Health Movement which challenges the current healthcare system. In this project, we aim to practice making demands, to reach out and connect to other groups and their struggles, to inform ourselves about their needs and perspectives and to form alliances for making all of our intersecting demands heard. The project group The New Health Movement talks with self-organised political initiatives and individuals about their needs for an accessible and fair healthcare system, such as Casa Kuà, Bundesfachnetz Gesundheit und Rassismus, Mine Wenzel, <Platz da!>, Romani Phen and Women in Exile.
We are happy to invite you to join us for a workshop and poster presentation this upcoming Sunday, 15th of January 2023, from 3 – 5:30 at Gropiusbau Berlin. We will collectively tell about everyday experiences with the healthcare system, collect examples of how things could be done differently and develop narrative examples of future healthcare.
We meet in the foyer of Gropiusbau at 14:45.
Registration is not required.

We demand! Wishes and demands for a new health care system is part of the Resonance Room’s programme Berliner Gespräche über mentale Gesundheit. The Resonance Room is part of the group exhibition YOYI! Care, Repair, Heal and collects local experiences and voices on mental health in Berlin. As part of Mindscapes, FHRG is currently working on a Zine on the New Health Movement.
The entrance to the Gropius Bau via the accessible entrance is suitable for people with limited mobility, wheelchairs and prams. This is located to the left of the main entrance and is additionally marked with signs in front of the main entrance.
From the surrounding public transport stops, this can be reached as follows:
S-Bahn station Anhalter Bahnhof (S1. S2, S25, S26):
The nearby S-Bahn station Anhalter Bahnhof has an escalator and a lift. This is delineated by signs on the train platforms. The escalator and lift can be found on the way towards the exit “Möckernstraße/Tempodrom”. The lift leads to Askanischer Platz, which is connected to Schöneberger Straße by a tarred path. After about 100 metres on the right-hand side, you will find yourself on Stresemannstraße. Cross the street and stay on the left for about 500 metres to Niederkirchnerstraße. As soon as you have turned onto Niederkirchnerstraße, you will already see the main entrance 100 metres away, with a sign regarding the barrier-free entrance.
The S-Bahn station also has an exit via stairs. This is located in the direction of the exit “Stresemannstraße/Schöneberger Straße”, where the “Martin-Gropius-Bau” is already marked with an accompanying arrow on the platform sign. If you follow this sign, another one will point you to the right exit, which leads directly to Stresemannstraße. There, another sign points the way to the Gropius Bau.
Bus stop Abgeordnetenhaus (M41):
On Stresemannstraße, between the Abgeordnetenhaus S-Bahn station and the turn-off to Niederkirchnerstraße, you will also find the bus stop “Abgeordnetenhaus”. If you arrive there from the direction of “Potsdamer Platz”, you must first cross the street. After about 300 metres along Stresemannstraße, you will find Niederkirchnerstraße on the right-hand side. As soon as you have turned into this street, the main entrance is 100 metres away, along with a sign directing you to the accessible entrance.
(Accessible) parking spaces
The Gropius Bau has a large car park on its west side, which can be reached via an entrance on Stresemannstraße.
There are two accessible parking spaces on the left-hand side of this car park. Niederkirchnerstraße also has a disabled-friendly car park, which is located on the side of the Abgeordnetenhaus, Berlin’s House of Representatives, diagonally opposite the main entrance.
The building provides barrier-free access to all three exhibition floors. Wheelchairs and portable museum stools are available to loan from the cloakroom.
All Gender / Accessible toilets
Toilets for all genders, which also function as accessible toilets, can be found on the first floor.
Attendants for people with severe disabilities will be admitted free of charge. Inquire at our Information Desk to learn more.
