This was true today as it was during the Second World War: food supplies are crucial to every war and every invasion. Someone has to take care of it, and during the occupation of Copenhagen, the German Wehrmacht was put in charge of it. Today we can see some small etched remains over eighty years old.
Urban Nation is more than a museum in Berlin. Urban Nation is a global institution focus on urban art. Their goal is to set new standards when it comes to artists and projects in contemporary art. And the work on the exhibitions is not limited to the walls inside the museum, as you can see when you walk around the place in Bülowstrasse.
Back in May 2008, Banksy organized the first Cans Festival, and it happened at the Leake Street Tunnel. The idea of the festival was to exhibit the work of famous street artists that he hand-picked and invited personally by Banksy.
This is how this disused road tunnel in south London became the Graffiti Tunnel.
For one week in 2018, Berlin had an urban art temple in Wilmersdorf called Wandelism. With more than 90 street artists from Berlin and beyond, this was a celebration of what Berlin is: a wild and colourful place. You could see various urban art styles, from graffiti to bombing, from art installation to contemporary art and performance.
The first time I went to Steglitz was to visit a Primark since they only had one shop in Berlin, and the shop was in this part of the city that I had never been to before. That visit was in 2012, and it was then that my obsession with the Bierpinsel started.
The Haus is Berlin’s newest attraction, and it can only be described as one of these things that only happen in the German Capital. We say this because over 150 artists were invited to turn a disused bank into a temporary gallery for street art. Every room becomes a piece of art, and there are paintings, tags, sculptures and graffiti spread over five floors. But… Everything will only last until demolition day.
