Saturday's PhotoHunting: Graffiti/Street Art


One of the most interesting Graffiti/Street Art I have seen in my travels has to be at Kunsthaus Tacheles in Berlin, Germany.

The Kunsthaus Tacheles (Art House Tacheles), is an art center in Berlin, Germany, a large (9000 square meter) guilding on Oranienburger StraBe in the district known as Mitte.  Huge, colorful graffiti-style murals are painted on the exterior walls, and modern art sculptures are featured inside.  The building houses an artists collective which is threatened with eviction. ~ Wikipedia

Here's a short video of my visit. :)

    1. Hi Annie, thanks for liking my photos. It was probably one of the more unique and different places I've ever visited. I hope the community continues to support the artists there. They are really talented and need to be supported.

      Happy Friday and have a great weekend too.

  2. Vibrant Europe alright! I visited Berlin in the summer of 1989, before the Berlin Wall came down. It was a very interesting experience -- and yes, I did see a lot of great art there! :)

    1. Hi YTSL, thanks so much for your comments. Yes, Vibrant Berlin, so true. I think I would've like seeing Berlin before and after the wall came down. So much history. I loved my stay there and really want to return and stay longer than a week.

      Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Hi girls, thanks so much for your comments ....

    Ewok, thank you for liking my take. :)

    Gattina, it was a very interesting visit. Berlin is brilliant...such a fun city to visit.

    Sue, yes intriguing it was. Not your typical art gallery for sure. :)

    ECL, I hope that it is still there and continues to be supported. It has a bit of a controversial history and has faced closures in the past. If you are ever in Berlin, try to definitely visit it. The artists there are so nice and very proud of their work as well they should be.

    Thanks everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.
