BLVD KU’DAMM presents WALKING TOURS

Boulevard of visions

Take a discovery tour around Kurfürstendamm with an experienced city guide! In 1929, German writer Franz Hessel wrote about Berlin’s Ku’damm Boulevard and according to him, “Tauentzienstraße and Kurfürstendamm have the high cultural mission of teaching Berliners how to stroll and gaze ” .

It was Bismarck’s vision to create a Parisian-style boulevard in Charlottenburg. This bourgeois residential street has been a shopping street, an entertainment strip, an industrial area for the intelligentsia, a symbol of modernity for the Weimar Republic, a deployment zone for the Nazis, an area of ruins, and the glittering display of the free West. Since reunification, the boulevard has had to face tough competition from other locations. Which visionaries have left their mark and how will life continue to thrive on the boulevard in the future?

Our city walking tours with authors Michael Bienert and Arne Krasting will inspire you to “read the streets”. Starting at the Stage Theater des Westens and ending with a tour of the tower at Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche (subject to change).

All walking tours are in german language.

Walking tours are free of charge. Registration is required. Please click on the link to register. The meeting point for walking tours is always at the box office at Stage Theater des Westens, Kantstraße 12, 10623 Berlin at 17.00.

BLVD KU'DAMM presents ALL WE WROTE

ALL WE WROTE – 50 YEARS OF GRAFFITI CULTURE OUT OF NOWHERE TO THE WHOLE WORLD – NOW ON KU’DAMM

From 2nd June Kufürstendamm – the place to be – will be featuring one of the longest graffiti exhibitions in the world. The exhibition, in the centre of Berlin and spanning five decades of artists, shows just how much the art form that once originated in New York has now reached the hearts of the world’s largest metropolises. On recreated monuments and metro trains, some of the world’s most relevant graffiti writers are showcasing a cross-section of the multifaceted world and history of graffiti. Berlin is the first stop on a journey through places of pilgrimage for graffiti around the world, from Paris, Amsterdam and São Paulo to, of course, New York City.

ALL WE WROTE brings this 50 year history to Berlin’s Ku’damm through a travelling exhibition and gets to the heart of how divisive the reputation of graffiti is. On the contrary, the original spots for graffiti culture have been recreated. Along with the most famous landmarks of graffiti cities, metro trains and house facades have been installed allowing the graffiti writers’ artworks to shine in their original form.

From the heart of culture, the creators of ALL WE WROTE are part of the graffiti scene and are supported and advised by high-profile names in the urban world: FINO, LOOMIT, AKTE & CREN, Pascal Gerstenlauer, Nikki Mendes, Cara Muru and Marion von Kampen are all involved in the project and are engaging with their networks to ensure the authenticity of the exhibition.

As well as the public art installation, visitors can also shop in the Urban Contemporary Pop-Up STORE Ku’damm 21 where merchandise, art and prints are on sale. In the basement of the STORE, the teaser exhibition ‘Rise Of Digital’ will feature works from 3D and digital artists.

This means that we have come full circle and a new form of art suitable for the digital age will be presented.

You can visit ALL WE WROTE from 2nd June 2022 to 26th June 2022.
In the middle of Ku’damm from Wittenbergplatz to as far as Kranzler Eck.
