Boros founded an eponymous advertising agency in Wuppertal. In 2003, Boros and his wife purchased a former Second World War bomb shelter, the Reichsbahnbunker in Mitte, Berlin. The bunker was converted by Casper Mueller Kneer, who are responsible for White Cube in London. In 2008, Boros opened his gallery in the bunker. The gallery space of 30,000 square feet (2,800 m2) was designed by Realarchitektur, including the rooftop residential penthouse, and contained pieces that Boros had been collecting for over 30 years. The collection includes numerous works by Danh Vo, Elizabeth Peyton, Wolfgang Tillmans, Ai Weiwei, Thomas Ruff, Klara Lidén, Anselm Reyle, Tobias Rehberger and Olafur Eliasson. Entrance to the gallery is by guided tour only. Boros' bunker was built in 1943 by the architect Karl Bonatz on the orders of Adolf Hitler. After the Second World War, the bunker was used as a fruit warehouse, before later becoming a fetish nightclub, with a reputation for being the "most hardcore club in the world," featuring techno music and frequent sadomasochism (S&M) nights, or "raves and sex parties".
