URBAN NATION X GRIESSMUEHLE @CSD 2019
- August 1, 2019
Last weekend the Christopher Street Day took place in Berlin. Together with the Griessmuehle, URBAN NATION was also represented this year with its own truck at the colourful parade. It was a celebration of love, for more tolerance, respect and diversity.
The URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART stands for a tolerant, open and equal society and contributes to understanding with art and social projects. URBAN NATION and one of Berlin’s hottest clubs, the Griessmuehle, were represented with a joint truck, just like last year. The truck was designed by the well-known Berlin artist Mimi S.
On the truck itself and around it there was a lot of partying and dancing. The DJs Ellen Allien, Mareena, Prantel and Deejay Divinity heated everyone up. Nobody could stand still. In bright sunshine the parade went from the Kurfürstendamm with glitter, unusual outfits and rainbow colours to the Brandenburg Gate. Mimi S describes the basic tenor of the event very good with her artwork and the following words:
“The most important thing that makes up our world is diversity. Diversity means mutual acceptance as well as acceptance of the other. My main intention is to show that there are no limits of living together.”
We thank Griessmuehle for this fantastic event and this great day with happy people, lots of love and unforgettable moments.
