‘Berlin, the greatest cultural extravaganza that one could imagine.’ That is the way David Bowie described Berlin in 1970.

Today, almost 50 years after Bowie’s statement, Berlin is still the greatest cultural extravaganza that one could imagine.

Today artists and creatives from all over the world turn to Berlin as the world’s capital of art and culture. Many people moved here seeking the creative freedom and cultural cross-contamination, like only Berlin is able to offer with such a charm. People coming to seek, with or without the consciousness of being themselves an essential component of the magic spell making this place so special.

Berlin’s art scene during the years became a window through which the world looks to a transformed version of itself, metamorphosed in a extravagant butterfy by art, culture and freedom.
