Art Unbounded, Graffiti Alive: The Kunsthaus Tacheles Artist Collective

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

They condemned the building years ago, but the artists won't give it up, have claimed every square inch of this carved out, graffiti-encrusted sanctuary as their own. You go to see, but don't you also go to support, buying graphic tees and Dali-esque pendants and a single leather bracelet, because the art must live on.

This post is for my friend, Tamra T. She knows why.

I'm so enjoying these photos of your travels. How do you find these places?

Thank you, M. I have read a lot, and I have two friends who have traveled here and generously shared their thoughts. One is a dear person in books. The other is a professor of German history who lived here while researching his book on the Berlin black market. And sometimes walking and getting lost locates sweet surprises.
