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.

World largest open air gallery

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A section of the former Berlin wall is now the East Side Gallery, it is 1.3km-long. Approximately 106 paintings by artists from all over the world covers this memorial for freedom and it makes it the largest open air gallery in the world. To match the walk with communication get off at the S-Bahn stop Warschauer Str., walk along the wall, then get back on at Ostbahnhof.

Yoga for everyone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More meditation into everyday life, the little Street-yogis in Berlin are encouraging this in a really charming way. The idea for Street Yogis comes from Joseph Foos, a 55 year old joga instructor, inspired by the project “Little People” of the London street artist Slinkachu. What is special about the street-yogis, is that although they stand on a public streets, most people do not see them. But once you have spotted one, the next will come easier and with a satisfaction. Joseph is explaining that every yoga position is called a asana and the little men made out of cork, kebab stick and of course a lot of strong glue shows different asanas. Many of the yogis are gone because of weather and wind but also unfortenly turists are taking them home as souvenirs, up till now Joseph has done over 350 pieces.
