Käuzchensteig 10 was the address of the artist studio building in Berlin Dahlem, in which Beate Terfloth and Heidi Specker worked in the mid-2000s. Originally it was built for the “state artist” Arno Breker in 1939–1942 by order of Adolf Hitler.
After World War II the Berlin Government took responsibility for the house and divided it into several studio spaces. Jimmie Durham, Helen Mirra, Emmett Williams and Wolf Vostell worked here, some of them at the invitation of the DAAD Artists in Berlin Program.
2009 the studios were closed and later reopened as Kunsthaus Dahlem, an exhibition venue for postwar German modernism. The drawings of Beate Terfloth and the photographs of Heidi Specker were created while they were studio neighbours in Käuzchensteig 10.
