In Berlin in need of a wee?
This post presents two toilet facilities unlike anything you’ve ever seen. The experience is slightly claustrophobic at first, it feels crowded and as if something is closing in on you. But if you take another look, focus on the walls, read the messages and enjoy the graphic intensity – you are in for a multisensory experience.
Urban Spree Toilet
Urban Spree is a multifaceted compound that merges multiple media on walls, fences and floors, enabling you to choose how to enjoy art. The Urban Spree concert hall is dedicated to a wide variety of live music, ranging from rock to advanced electronic music. The complex also hosts urban summer sessions with Berlin’s best street musicians (every Friday night, Saturday and Sunday in the Beer Garden).
Urban Spree is also home for many festivals and events, such as Pictoplasma, Druck berlin, Amaze, ComicInvasion Berlin, Krake, graphic days, outdoor screenings, diner events and more.
If you want to participate in the events, you should check the website or Facebook in advance.
Urban Nation Museum Toilet
The Urban Nation Museum of Contemporary Urban Art in Berlin was opened in the Schonenberg neighborhood in 2017 and, since then, it has provided its visitors with insights on matters relating to history, culture and urban art in Germany. The museum is a unique platform for changing exhibitions aiming to introduce street art and culture and to invoke urban inspiration and creation.
On the one hand, the museum experience resembles that of other small museums. On the other hand, Urban Nation, offers a unique glimpse of the Berlin street experience, with thousands of photos taken by artists and photographers who were and are involved in the Berlin street art scene.
