Don’t miss the opening of the first German street art museum
The Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art is the first German street art museum, opening next September in Berlin. Curated by Yasha Young it will emerge in the quarter of Schöneberg, in the heart of the city, with the main focus on promoting young exponents of urban contemporary art. Thanks to its special design and architectural concept it will be for sure an internationally unique institution for this art form.
The Wilhelminian-era building at Bülowstrasse 7, which already existed, has been converted into a museum to the innovative plans of the architecture bureau GRAFT. The building itself is a piece of art, because it gives artists from all over the world the opportunity to use the façade as a canvas, which will be changed periodically.
The interior will also have surprises in store: Urban Nation is quite literally moving the street indoors. A catwalk stretching across the entire twostorey interior will allow the exhibited works to be observed both from a distance and close up.
Bülowstrasse 7 will also become a centre for working, networking, research and teaching. The museum will offer its visitors educational formats and interactive workshops, changing special exhibitions and much, much more. The UN museum will also host a library, an auditorium for events, as well as twelve apartments for UN Artist within the Residence Program.
