URBAN NATION - AWESOME BERLIN

URBAN NATION

Amazing street art project in Schöneberg

Think of one of the coolest urban contemporary art projects you can think of. That’s Urban Nation. They support and bring together artists that shape urban spaces around the globe. They host workshops, events and exhibitions in a non-profit public space along Bülowstrasse in Schöneberg. An otherwise fairly uninteresting street.

There is a small gallery/exhibition space on number 97 that often has some super interesting and superbly curated shows going on. What we find beautiful, however, is that the gallery expands to the outside area surrounding it. Building façades, corners, garage entrances, walls, columns have been treated as canvases for local and international artists.

Make sure you walk along Bülowstrasse and explore. Particularly the area between U2 Büllowstrasse and Nollendorfplatz Stations. Take the time to go around structures and uncover beautiful street art and angles. The highlight is the corner area of Büllowstrasse and Frobenstrasse with curated walls and two giant building façade murals.

If you are an urban art lover (or want to understand it better) this is a space that you simply cannot miss when visiting Berlin.  It is also a good way to get to understand a little bit of the current street art movement’s soul.

What we like to do at Urban Nation: Explore the area around the gallery, take a million pictures and in the end enter the gallery space.
