The news spread, and Berlin area artist Emily Pütter reports that more than one thousand artists, all carrying paintings, stood in a queue several kilometers long along the main streets of Berlin hoping to hang their work on Deutsche Bank exhibition space walls. Artists arrived on bicycles, by car, and walking, only to talk and laugh with the other artists who also had no chance of getting in. Many stood in the snow and cold for hours hoping to hang their art. Emily says, “There will be another one at the end of the month.” So apparently Deutsche Bank plans to do this every few weeks.
Later, after the show opened to the public, Emily attended the exhibition–waiting 2 hours to get in–while Deutsche Bank provided hot tea, coffee, and sausages to those waiting on the street in the cold.
Once Emily got inside the show– “there were piano players, food and drinks, and a great ambience,” she said.
Thank you Emily!
