Back in Berlin for one day so i’m running from one exhibition to the other. I’ve seen a fair share of uninteresting works so far but thank god there’s also a few gems around. High on the list is this mural made by JR and BLU in Kreuzberg (first read about it in Wooster)
After that i took the S-bahn back to Mitte to check out Peter Bialobrzeski‘s photos of megacities in Asia at the Cicero Galerie. Seeing them just after the Kreuzberg mural made me think of the monstruously fascinating urban sprawl i saw a few days ago in Beijing. Good old European capitals are just dwarves.
