Das URBAN NATION Projekt ist am vergangenen Wochenende mit Project M in die dritte Runde gegangen. Es wurden wieder diverse internationale Street Art Künstler in die Hauptstadt eingeladen, darunter Martha Cooper, Dotdotdot, Ernest Zacharevic, Various & Gould, M-City, Levalet, Plotbot Ken, David Hochbaum, Martin Whatson, Evol und Buff Diss! Kuratiert vom NUART Team aus Stavanger (Norwegen). Für Mai kündigt die Projektleiterin Yasha Young Project M/4 an.
Project M is a temporary art project with the objective to improve the neighborhood, to push creativity and to connect people. At regular intervals Urban Nation with director Yasha Young invites a group of internationally reclaimed contemporary urban artists to re-design the facade and shop windows of a prominent residential building in Berlin, while it is being reconstructed.
Project M/3 is curated by norwegian street and urban art festival Nuart and features international artists like the legendary US photo journalist Martha Cooper, the Lithuanian native Ernest Zacharevic, Norwegian Martin Whatson, Berlin-based urban art duo Various & Gould and many more. The artworks are on view in Berlin since March 15 until the launch of Project M/4 in May.
Much more than just being a creative cover-up during construction time, the art invites passers-by and residents alike to engage with the building, the motifs and the styles of the different artists. Project M is all about communities and also about sharing. This is why it is a group of artists coming together to create a colorful cocoon for the building.
