An Evening With Sculptor Charles Simonds in Berlin
The New York sculptor Charles Simonds has developed since the early 1970s, a new type of artistic practice at the intersection of sculpture, performance, street art, imaginary urban planning and socially engaged environmental projects.

The Eye of Berlin by JR
French street arteest JR is taking to the streets of Germany with his project “Wrinkles of the City”, reproducing and pasting up images of elderly people who have experienced the transformation of Berlin and been so embedded in its evolution that they now step out from behind their lenses and become a part of the city itself. The looming eye of an unknown witness can be found at 25 Gustav meyer allee, if you feel like staring it down yourself.

the berlin poetry festival needs your help to realize this project:
“what’s the point of poetry?”
do you ask yourself the same question? for that reason, we’ve collected 47 photos with answers from poets throughout europe in order to read, see, and understand its value. we want to present them in berlin in the exhibition: “what’s the point of poetry? / a european polyphony. on display.“
and here’s what happens…
47 poets from 47 european countries share their thoughts on the question “what’s the point of poetry?” in 47 photos. they’ve created slogans that comment on the state of culture and society in their countries while also keeping poetry in focus. this june at the berlin poetry festival (poesiefestival berlin), their very diverse poetic messages and points of view will be assembled in an exhibition. the photos are demonstrations and acts of solidarity at the same time. there has never been such an exhibition before. it offers the unique opportunity of bringing the variety of european voices and moods together in one place.
