The Berlin Graphic Days are back for their third year running. Celebrating graphic art from around the world, the event will be going in big with a week-long program of exhibitions, live art performances, market stalls, workshops and parties. Following the closure of Katerholzig the event is now being held at Urban Spree in the RAW complex in Friedrichshain.
The festivities will begin on Monday January 20th with the vernissage of the Berlin Graphic Days Exhibition and a live performance from pop art activist Jim Avignon. The highlights for the rest of the week will include a live performance from Berlin tape-art collective Klebebande on January 21st (from 7PM) and an auction night for the very interesting charity through skateboarding project Boards without borders on January 22nd (from 7 PM). One of the stalls which shouldn’t be missed during the festival is the Friedrichshain Sérigraffeur Gallerie who will be showcasing an ever-increasing selection of cool prints by artists from Berlin and beyond.
The usual weekend market where you will be able to purchase exclusive artworks and pleasure your eyes with the works of some of the best graphic artists in the world will be held on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of January. For the whole program including workshops, demos and music head over to the event page.
