ROOM OF REQUIREMENT is a series of exhibitions held in alternating spaces throughout Berlin. Different curators are invited to host limited numbers of rotating events until the space is finally returned to its original function. The room could disappear at any given moment yet also reappear at other times and locations in instances of requirement.

Formerly housed in a temporarily unused office building in Kreuzberg, 2015 Room of Requirement will be hosted by HORSEANDPONY Fine Arts. Founded by Carrick Bell and Michael Rocco Ruglio-Misurell in 2014, HORSEANDPONY Fine Arts  is an artist-run space with the aim of providing artists, curators, and other project spaces the opportunity to extend or act outside of their existing practices.
