3rd STREET LABour - experimental urban art festival
street = strasse; lab = labor; our = reclaime your city; street labour = strassenarbeiter
“STREET LABour - experimental urban art festival” presents a selection of national and international urban artists who expose the urban
hinterland instead of simply just “illustrating” it. The artists’
work has the capability of entertaining without being just
another distraction from questioning the complexities of society.
They will provoke and ultimately fascinate you.
“STREET LABour - experimental urban art festival” is an art festival that deals in a unique way with contemporary forms of urban culture or rather,
urban multi-culture. The second edition of streetlab takes place
in venues and project spaces across Berlin’s melting-pot districts
Kreuzberg and Neukoelln. A picture of urban culture will be
painted through the exhibitions,installations, workshops and the
festival’s highlight “Urban Art Circus” in the Heimathafen Neukoelln.
The festival aims to provide a window into the international urban
creative scene and to start a dialogue with the people of this city,
about their city. As well as its presence on our streets, the last few
years have seen street art appearing in museums, cultural institutions
and galleries. Urban art has developed its own gravitas–something
that just a few years ago seemed unattainable. Its influence can be
felt in the fields of advertisement, graphic design and fashion, and it
has equally influenced the aesthetics of contemporary art. The
development of this culture continues out on the streets, with its
utopian desire to stake out space and create room for individual
expression within the urban landscape.
Venues: Heimathafen Neukölln, Kunstraum Bethanien, Open Design City @ Betahaus, Aufbau Haus, Motions Tanzstudios and many more project spaces in Berlin Kreuzberg & Neukölln
