Kunstautomat

Hidden Berlin Facebook and Instagram feeds (25 March 2016)

Berlin: it’s the place where German efficiency and logic blends wickedly into a melting pot of creativity, freedom and innovation. So we guess it was only a matter of time before a project like this made its way onto the city’s streets. Art out of vending machines? Yes please. This “Kunstautomat” just off Oranienburger Straße is part of a Germany-wide project by art and exhibition organisers Kunsttick. The group’s first vending machine sprung up in Potsdam in 2001. The aim? To take what in years gone by was an unaffordable luxury, and turn it into something everyone can enjoy. Pop €4 into the slot and you’ll be presented with a collection of drawings and designs by one of over 60 artists who’ve contributed their talents to the project. Each box is packed by the artist themselves, along with a short bio, contact information and glimpse into the life of the piece’s creator. So for a bite-sized taste of Germany’s buzzing art scene, hunt down your nearest vending machine and whack out the loose change! #Kunstautomat #Kunsttick #Art #ArtVendingMachine #VendingMachine #Kunsthof #BerlinKunst #BerlinArt #StreetArt #StreetArtBerlin #BerlinStreetArt #Artist #MiniArt #OranienburgerStrasse #Berlin #HiddenBerlin #BerlinMitte
