This year, “Art in the Underground” celebrates its 60th anniversary. The competition originated in 1958 on the station platform of the U2 at Alexanderplatz. What began in the GDR with a call for ‘Posters for Peace’, is still continued today in a similar vein in public space. Called for and realised by the nGbK since 1991, the art competition addresses both socio-political and aesthetic issues and is still partially carried out underground – along Berlin’s U-Bahn network.
For the anniversary art posters will be presented at Alexanderplatz station (U5) as well as other works from the open art competition at the station urbaner kulturen in Hellersdorf.
Futher Openings: 16 November 2018 and 27 November 2018
