Your summer art weekend in Berlin


Your summer art weekend in Berlin

Berlin’s best art openings for the weekend (May 22nd – 25th 2014): David Bowie at Martin Gropius Bau, a street art festival, Surrealist Porn

Austellung / David Bowie at Martin Gropius Bau

Runs until 10th August 2014

The much aniticipated David Bowie exhibition has finally reached Berlin. Featuring over 300 objects chatering this extraordinary character’s life, the exhibition offers just a glimpse into the many personas of Mr. Bowie and explores his well known tie with Berlin as he resided here in the late 1970s with Iggy Pop. Including a wealth of information on his life, influences and professional development in different fields, this is an exhibtion not be missed by both Bowie and music fans alike.

We have been at the opening, and this is what we found: David Bowie – der Soundtrack einer Epoche zurück in Berlin

Martin-Gropius-Bau // Niederkirchnerstraße 7, 10963 Berlin

Vernissage / SattLAB Collective No.1

Thursday 22nd May – 6pm until midnight

There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction you get when peeling back a stencil to reveal a freshly created screen print, a sentiment i’m sure the group of artists taking part in this screen printing exhibition can vouch for. The first exhibition by Stattbad based, independent print lab ‚StattLAB‘, (see what they did there), the show will feature the fruits of their space’s labour with the work of 15 international artists.

It wouldn’t be a typical Berlin weekend without an amazing party, and Pornceptual have this weekend covered with their latest ‚Surrealist Porn‘ soiree. An amalgamation of drinking, dancing and debauchery, guests can expect a number of performances including something special by Fuck For Forests, amazing photography by Chris Phillips and one of the best dressed crowds in Berlin. Watch their party promo video here to get in the mood – we’ll see you there!

Loftus Hall // Maybachufer 48 / Ecke Pannierstrasse, 12045 Berlin 

Festival / KONTAKT#3 – 2 days of street art and performances

Saturday 24th May – 1pm until Sunday 25th May 10pm

Street art enthusiasts will be in heaven this weekend with the third edition of Kontakt, a two day street art event focussing on re-aligning people’s attention to the most important people in the creative world – the artists themselves. Cutting out any middle men and allowing the artists to share their messages (and their works) with an audience, the event will feature live street art collaborations, a marketplace and good vibes, with a mixture of big international street artists and smaller, local names.
