Berlin’s art scene is booming these days. The city’s cheaper-than-average rent has drawn in artists continent-wide who have been busy creating a truly global contemporary art scene that is spilling out into every street, every park, and everyone’s consciousness.
Berlin is the home of DADA, Georg Grosz, and Max Ernst, among countless others luminaries in global art history. Recently Berlin’s art problem is that it has actually run out of room to house and display its massive collections.
The biggest galleries with the biggest crowds of international tourists for pre-modern and modern art are in Mitte: the Alte Nationalgalerie and the Bode Museum for pre-modern, and the Neue Nationalgalerie for modern.
For contemporary art in Berlin, though, all one needs to do is walk around. The city is a testing ground for galleries. Kreuzberg and Neukölln is where many of the city’s artists live, work, and drink. Their art show openings, attended to by resident bohemians, poets, and alternatives of all sorts, are a nightly occurrence.
For the street-art lover, Berlin is covered in it.
