A Genius Mind
The exhibition "The Mystery of Banksy" will reopen on May 19, 2021. He is world famous and yet a mystery - Banksy, the Bristol-born and to this day anonymous graffiti artist and painter, who is known for challenging the boundaries of the art market and who has been causing a sensation with his works for years.
In March, "The Mystery of Banksy - A Genius Mind" celebrated its world premiere in Munich, and now another setting of the exhibition, created especially for Berlin, is coming to the German capital!
The exhibition features an unprecedented presentation of more than 100 works by the celebrated street art superstar: graffiti, photographs, sculptures, video installations and prints on various materials such as canvas, fabric, aluminum, forex and plexiglass were reproduced and assembled especially for this special show.
The whole is rounded off by an exciting video documentary that highlights the most important stages of a bespieleless career.
Putting together an exhibition about the most famous street artist of our time is no easy undertaking. This challenge is now taken up by the well-known Passau musical producer and exhibition organizer Oliver Forster (COFO Entertainment) together with the Berlin Concertbüro Zahlmann . "We want to make art an experience, visible to everyone and brought together in one place. Banksy is first and foremost a street artist known for his graffiti, which he has spread all over the world. Besides that, he started selling original signed artworks and limited edition prints pretty early on. Most of them are privately owned and thus not available to the public. So to be able to admire an original Banksy is an absolute rarity. With 'The Mystery of Banksy - A Genius Mind', we are now trying to make it possible to experience the best and most impressive motifs in just one place and in a relaxed atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle of the museum, but still with high quality standards," says producer Oliver Forster.
"The Mystery of Banksy - A Genius Mind" gives visitors a comprehensive overview and insight into the complete works of the genius and exceptional artist in an elaborate and unique setting.
True to Banksy's motto "Copyright is for losers ©TM", this homage is also not officially authorized due to his anonymous status.
The popular event location STATION-Berlin is located in the listed former Dresden railway station not far from Potsdamer Platz am Gleisdreieck.
"We are extremely pleased that these exciting and highly attractive exhibitions for the public are taking place in our extraordinary location. We are convinced that their Corona-safe staging will represent a milestone in Berlin's cultural life on the way back to a new normality," says Hauke Fischbeck, the STATION's managing director.
