Street Art Walk Bülowstraße - Art for Everyone!

Berlin. "Poor but sexy" ...and rich in street art. On Berlin's streets there is art for everyone without having to pay admission - because that is the maxim of Street Art. This is lived particularly intensively around Bülowstraße. Here you can find so much Street Art in a dense space, as only at few places. Sometimes big, sometimes small, black and white or brightly coloured, political, funny and socio-critical. Around the Urban Art Museum for Contemporary Art, various artists have designed several walls for URBAN NATION under the motto "One Wall". And since street art magically attracts other street art, there are many more pieces to discover. Come along on a Street Art walk around Bülowstraße.

"Poor but sexy!" Who said that? That was Berlin's mayor Wowereit in November 2003, when the phrase became the city's leitmotif and was often quoted.

Urban Art Museum for Contemporary Art,

What is street art doing in a museum? Street art belongs on the street...

Actually, yes, but. The international network of URBAN NATION promotes artists and the acceptance of street art. Because everyone who is involved with street art knows: art polarizes. And art that is visible to everyone on the street, all the more so. Workshops, Street Art Festivals, das “One Wall” Projekt und natürlich das Museum selbst schaffen eine communication platform. A basis for the exchange and growing together of artists, artworks and the inhabitants behind the painted walls. The museum on Bülowstraße documents the history of a subculture and explores the question of what makes street art so fascinating and successful. A total of 100 works by well-known artists and newcomersawait you. And for those who can't make it to Berlin, the museum also offers a digital tour. .

The facade of the Urban Nation Museum shows a mural by Dave the Chimp & Friends on the theme of solidarity in June 2020

Dave the Chimp & Friends: Solidarität - Urban Art Museum Bülowstraße 7

On the outer facade of the museum is a modular interchangeable facade with fibre cement panels. It was redesigned in June 2020 by Dave the Chimp & Friends . Dave is known for his orange "Human Beans". Together with Mina, Señor Schnu, Lunartik and Humble Writerz he designed the façade of the museum. The result is a picture in which so much is to be discovered that one can hardly make the jump into the actual museum. But for all the diversity, there is also an overriding theme: solidarity.

How to get there:
Bülowstraße 7; underground station Bülowstraße (U2) or Nollendorfplatz (U1, U2, U3, U4).
Admission is free, but donations are welcome.
