15th Open Air Gallery at the Oberbaumbrücke in Berlin

The Oberbaumbrücke in Berlin will be closed again for traffic on Sunday 3 September. The OpenAirGallery, Berlin's largest open-air exhibition, is opening for the 15th time across the Spree between Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. It has established itself as an important event in the Berlin art and cultural calendar, and last year the OpenAirGallery welcomed more than 53,500 visitors. This year's selection of over a hundred international artists will be presented, exhibiting their works in this particular location.

From all applications of both professional, already established as well as lesser-known international artists from the fields of painting, graphics, sculpture and photography the participants admitted to the exhibition are selected each year by the decision of a jury. I am happy to be part of this years event on 3rd of September, and present my work there.

Admission is free for all visitors. You can experience the wide range of contemporary art and enjoy a great atmosphere.
The OpenAirGallery is open from 10:00 to 20:00.
