ART IN THE UNDERGROUND: NEW URBAN PUBLICS | nGbK
The neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst (nGbK) presents the results of the international art competition “Art in the Underground”, this year titled “New Urban Publics”. The selected artworks will be exhibited until August 10 and will connect Berlin’s underground system with specific urban spaces above ground.
Thinking about the concept of public squares as places for meeting and dialogue, three locations in Berlin – Kottbusser Tor, Strausberger Platz, and Rotes Rathaus – along with their respective subway stations, have been chosen for artistic interventions made by the selected artists. All three locations are characterized by striking architecture, intersected by streets, bridges, elevated railways, or featuring a fountain in the middle.
The project is accompanied by an extensive event program.
