Even if I am not living in the beloved capital anymore, I am still trying to follow the founding or developing of new places, events, etc.
The other day a dear friend of mine told me about the Stattbad Wedding, which is used for something different as an indoor swimming pool after its closing. It is a space for art and culture; especially urban culture and contemporary art are functioning next to each other and together.
This year for the first time there will be STATTMARKT 2012. Their description says:
"It is an Art only edition, featuring designated artist project spaces combined with a commercial element. Each space will be individually curated presenting a twist to the traditional art market format & resulting in the most diverse array of artists to be showcased in STATTBAD Wedding to date."
