Set up in 2017 as a joint endeavour of several artistic collectives, the Katzenberg mansion used to be the headquarters of a gun powder factory since the mid-19th century. After the gradual disintegration of the powder and chemical business, the factory closed down in 2012.
The mansion itself was bought by a private company, Iskra Mehanizmi. As the mansion is near the Kamnik Culture House it was occasionally used for the organisation's various endeavours. However, in 2016, several cultural activists and organisations rented the entire place and kick-started its renovation. Now, it is a self-financed and self-managed project, open for various types of collaboration.
