Tomorrow we’ll start a small thematic series, as I had the chance to visit Berlin last week end: Berlin is one of the capitals of contemporary art in Europe, and there are many things to talk about. But why talking about just one city as a whole? Every city has its history, and many artworks reflect this history. Around the streets and the squares many artworks can be found and analysed, and it can be interesting to see them in dialogue with each other. In particular Berlin has a strong historical background and the effects of it are still vivid in people’s minds. But as soon as we visit new places there will be more series to come!
Stay tuned for all the new posts, and comment below about what you want to see next!
