The mission of LiTE-HAUS Galerie + Projektraum is to encourage cross cultural communication by connecting people through art. Ad Finem gGmbH is the parent company - a non-profit organization founded by Trinidadian-American artist Debbie Davies. Her project space and atelier hosts exhibitions, events, projects, and workshops which address various environmental issues. The definition of "environmental" goes beyond ecological concerns and involves the diverse cultural environment of modern cities. Berlin is a mosaic of ethnicities, religions, and economic classes. Like many large metropolitan cities it's diversity is both energizing, yet sometimes polarizing. LiTE-HAUS focuses on provocative issues using art and culture as a tool for building bridges. Through collaborations and pushing the boundaries of art’s definition, Davies hopes to bring people together and encourage conversation; something she feels is much needed in modern Germany. By forming a network with global partners, the work of international artists is exhibited in three bright white rooms. The exploration of culture is encouraged through collaborations between artists and residents. LiTE-HAUS to is a beacon in the diverse Neukölln community.
