It’s going to be extra colourful at BIKINI BERLIN from 9 October until 14 November 2020! That’s because a joint design project with Berlin-based tape specialists Klebeland and artist collective Tape That is making its way to the City West. The cooperation is enabling visitors to the concept shopping mall to try their hands at being tape artists and will see the ground floor of the mall being turned into an installation with two completely furnished living rooms. One room will be professionally designed with tape art products from Klebeland, while the room opposite will be left completely in white – in preparation for the BIKINI BERLIN visitors to get creative and leave their mark with their own designs.
And as if all that weren’t enough: every Saturday from 3:00 pm until 4:00 pm, a workshop for up to 10 people will be taking place in front of pop-up box No. 13. As well as finding out about the history of tape art, you will also be taught the basic techniques, which you can then put into practice by creating your own artworks. The workshop is all about giving free rein to your own creativity. Sign up online at www.klebeland.de. Suitable for young and old alike, the price of the 60-minute course is 10 euros.
Workshops: always on Saturdays from 3:00 - 4:00 pm (other dates also possible upon request!)
Online registration: www.klebeland.de
Participation fee: €10 incl. material and instructions
Location: BIKINI BERLIN, event space on ground floor, Budapester Str. 38-50, 10787 Berlin, nearest S/U-Bahn station: Zoologischer Garten
Since 2011, Tape That has been establishing itself as one of the most influential tape art artist groups. With their creative roots in contemporary urban art, graffiti and design, they organise exhibitions and workshops all over the world to help establish tape art as its own art form and a medium for cultural exchange. Timm Zolpys and Mohammed Ghoneim have specialised in the sale and production of tape art products: at their specialist store Klebeland in Reinickendorf-Wittenau, the two Klebeland founders meanwhile sell more than 500 variations of adhesive tape.
