Myth Kreuzberg SO36
Berlin styles itself as the capital of subversive art culture, and the ‘radical chic’ borough of Kreuzberg SO36 is often described as the world’s centre for Graffiti and Street Art, combining uniqueness and creativity.
Built on the myth of progressive attitudes and alternative subcultures, Kreuzberg is central to the symbol of a wild, rough city. In connection with these developments, Kreuzberg’s street-art scene has exploded in recent years into an inexhaustible treasure trove for artistic circles. Artists have sprayed and painted their graffiti and slogans on nearby every facade. Artworks are often combined with posters and leaflets espousing mostly left-wing political messages against the gentrification process.
