The artists of the 5th year of Fresh A.I.R. have intensively dealt with the city of Berlin and its inhabitants despite pandemic-related restrictions.
Last week, Belgian street artist Katrien Vanderlinden transformed a basketball court in Berlin-Spandau into one of her artistic Hypecourts as part of URBAN NATION’s ONE WALL series. She received support from the children in the neighbourhood, who helped her create the unique work of art with a lot of joy and enthusiasm.
While New York artist Peter Missing was creating our latest Community Wall in Schöneberg, we took the opportunity to ask him about his beginnings in Germany in the 1990s, his working process, and the differences and similarities between New York City and Berlin.
In the group exhibition The Versus Project, curators Patrick Hartl and Christian Hundertmark (C100) bring together thirteen artistic positions in an unusual way. The works on display literally cross borders and at the same time break one of the most important rules of graffiti.
This summer, the project space of the URBAN NATION Museum at Bülowstraße 97 presents the exhibition The Versus Project. The name speaks for itself: all the canvases on display were created in collaboration, namely by Hartl and Hundertmark in the form of the duo Layer Cake VERSUS the artists invited to the project.
