The Haus am Waldsee (House on Waldsee Lake) was one of the first exhibition spaces in Germany where international contemporary art was displayed to the public after 1945. Pablo Picasso was shown here as early as 1949; one year after that, Oskar Schlemmer and Georges Rouault had shows here, followed by Henry Moore and Max Ernst in 1951.
Today, the Haus am Waldsee continues to present key stages in contemporary art. It also offers a platform for international artists living and working in Berlin. Among the genres on display are painting, drawing, video art, sculpture, design, architecture and art that involves composition and sound. Up to five annual exhibitions are devoted to individual artists and/or particular themes, and sometimes classical works of art of post-War modernism are also shown.  
The villa was built for a Jewish factory-owning family in the style of an English country home in 1922/23. Sculptures by mostly contemporary artists are on display in the house's park-like garden. The Haus am Waldsee also organises artist roundtables, dinners, concerts, tours and workshops for adults, children and young adults that foster public participation and dialogue with artists.
