The journey through the panorama takes visitors on an adventure through Berlin’s extensive history, helping to give an understanding of the reinvention of Berlin in the 90’s after the wall fell when the city became a creative mecca, a blank canvas to explore through creation. Paintings, photography, video-art, performances and of course music are used to create a mosaic of experiences that tell this story of art and attempt to capture, if at all possible, the vibe of Berlin’s unique club scene

The exhibition opened with a talk by Sven Marquardt, the famous Berghain bouncer and photographer and will remain open to the public till January 11th (Wednesday to Monday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.).
