PICTOPLASMA CHARACTER WALK EXHIBITIONS 2018

17 ART VENUES & PROJECT SPACES IN BERLIN / FREE ENTRY

In a series of 17 exhibitions throughout central Berlin, more than 100 international artists present new original work – sculptures, paintings, art editions and multimedia installations – many of them for the first time in Germany.

Offering a surprising selection of affordable art, the exhibitions include surrealistic paintings from Mexico, internationally recognised character appeal from Finland, illustrations by ‘Trump’s most hated artist’ from the US, quirky animist ceramics from the UK, haunting child portraits from Chile, limited fine-art prints from Lithuania, immersive virtual wonder-worlds from Brasil, and a multitude of fresh, character-driven art, mixing pop culture with anthropomorphic spiritualism.

Printed Character Walk maps will be available for free at each participating venue to help you navigate between the exhibition, but as a start, the above online map version should hopefully be able to point you in the right direction…
