Escape with Artscapes UK to Berlin, one of Europe’s most creatively vibrant cities and a haven for artists for decades. But this journey with Ben Street takes us away from the expected to find the shifting identities of Berlin – a city coming to terms with its own troubled past.
Ben will explore four artworks embedded in the complex life of this vibrant city – a painting, a photograph, a memorial and an installation. These illustrate four different and contradictory viewpoints, leading us on a journey from a city divided in the late 1970s, to one embracing a new identity in the 1990s.
Before the event, you will receive an introductory film and a beautiful hand-delivered postcard with Ben’s personal recommendations for food, drink, music, and literature to compliment the talk. After the event, you will also receive a bonus film to dive into an extra work of art not covered in the talk.
