URBAN NATION @ CSD – Berlin 2018
Last weekend hundreds of thousands celebrated this year’s Christopher Street Day in Berlin. The URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART participated for the first time and was excited to welcome Nomad Clan and their take on this years motto of the March: “My body – my identity – my life”.
Together with colourful and cheerful visitors of Christopher Street Day in Berlin, the URBAN NATION museum celebrated its CSD debut. And what kind of one! In bright sunshine, the truck designed by the famous street art duo Nomad Clan attracted attention from Kurfürstendamm to the Brandenburg Gate. The booming basses of the Griessmuehle DJs did the rest to bring the mood to a boil. On the URBAN NATION truck itself, illustrious guests such as Berlin style icons Günter Krabbenhöft and Britt Kanja hit the dancefloor and infected numerous people with their good mood.
Even before the truck started moving and before the parade officially began, there was no stopping on and around the truck. During the parade more and more dancing people accompanied the URBAN NATION truck and grew in the course of the afternoon to a big crowd who celebrated together with the URBAN NATION team and their guests.
The organization team of URBAN NATION really expected everything, but this enthusiasm, these many friendly faces and the atmosphere we experienced there was just amazing. Everyone of the team still get goose bumps when they remember those moments. It was a great honour for URBAN NATION to be a part of this thoroughly successful CSD 2018. Everyone of the team and the invited guests are touched by the love and joy that they have experienced through the visitors.
