Since May 13, 2022, the Buddy Bears  have a new exhibition project in Berlin to specifically promote tolerance, respect and peaceful coexistence among the people living in the capital. For this purpose, an installation of seven 2m Buddy Bears will be presented on Wittenbergplatz for half a year. The motto of this artwork is "Hand in Hand for Tolerance".

The Berlin street artist "DYR Wandbrand", Damian Yves Rohde, has designed the sculptures. His visual language revolves around the central concepts: Tolerance, Respect, Freedom, Diversity and the leitmotif "Hand in Hand" After studying at the Berlin University of the Arts, Rohde has remained faithful to his roots in street art and visualizes in his typical style, with fresh bright colors the diversity of the population living in Berlin.

His seven Buddy Bears illustrate the joyful togetherness in the city, whose basis is tolerance and respect. They show people whose roots lie in all parts of the world. People of diverse cultural backgrounds, different religions, of all skin colors. Berliners with diverse concepts life and various orientations. The sculptures show: They are Berlin. We are Berlin!

The exhibition is open to the public and can be visited at any time.
