Our friends @ Urban Nation in Berlin just opened the latest edition from their ongoing series of M/ projects on February 22nd. Curated by Boris Niehaus (JUST), Christian Hundertmark (C100) & Rudolf David Klöckner (URBANSHIT), they presented M/11 – “Radius”, showing works by some of the most exciting urban artists from all around Germany.
Being the heart of Urban Nation’s program, the Project M/ series has been inviting internationally renowned artists four times a year to give facades and display windows in Berlin a makeover with a creative edge. After more than 110 artists were involved in the previous ten editions, and more than 130 works of art were created, the director of Urban Nation, Yasha Young, decided it’s time to focus on some of the local talents through Germany. The result is “Radius” exhibition, dedicated to documenting the development of urban art in the country by showing works by 16 most influential artist. The show overviews the history of graffiti and the development of the urban art scene in a city where street art was established as an “instrument of creative expression and social criticism” long time ago. Curated by the individuals who have been familiar with the scene for decades, it marks the 1st show in which Urban Nation is working exclusively with artists from Germany, showing far-reaching and diverse influences of the urban art genre. The participating artists also designed the mobile facade parts which will be available to the museum for their future projects. Full list of participating artists is including Case Maclaim, Flying Förtress, Formula 76, MadC, Moses & Taps, Nomad, Patrick Hartl & C100, Sweetuno, Various & Gould, Zelle Asphaltkultur, XOOOOX & Hatch Sticker Museum.
