The Berlin selection

The Berlin selection is a selection that came together in 2010/2011. At first there were some artists artists in Tacheles who participated in 2004. Later we presented several times and experienced the enourmous amout of interested people on the streets of Berlin. On advise of Martin Reiter we have started inviting international artists in October 2010. The last painting was added in January 2012. But not really. Since our Grand Opening started we have received already a significant number of artists interested in participation in this project. So this Berlin selection might be the first in a row of Berlin selections. Since Berlin is never finished and keeps on develloping, it sounds like a logical devellopment for us as well.
