Art critic Emilie Trice has called Berlin “the graffiti Mecca of the urban art world.” And so true, there is a lot, a lot and maybe even to much… Street art in Berlin is a big industry also. It’s not exactly legal, but the city’s title of UNESCO’s City of Design has kept local authorities from doing much to change what observers call the most “bombed” city in Europe. From the authorities’ point of view, the graffiti attracts tourists, and the tourists bring money to the city.

The wet and dead collection

naturhistorische

 

They call it the wet collection and right so, there is 80 tonnes of ethanol. After three years of reconstruction it is from some time now open to the public.

It is high level research collection that is used by scientists even nowadays.  Except the wet collection there is an stuffed example of every animal ever walked the earth, really neat!

And if you have curious children this is the place to take them!

Private art collection in bunkers

Boros collection

 

Here is a bit different art walk. Private art Collection of the Boros couple,
Located in a 3000 m2 old bunker in central Berlin, something about the bunker; built as
shelter for civilians, then used as prison by the Soviet Army then a warehouse
then the toughest club in the world with techno-, fetish-, and fantasy parties and so on and so on…
Now it houses art and one of my favorite pieces of Olafur Eliasson. Worth while!
But it requires some planning because of  reservation through their web page before visiting.
