Projects

Der Anfang wurde 2017 gestaltet, kurz nach Vereinsgründung.
Mit großer Kunst und Strahlkraft!

Das erste Projekt der Friends of Berlin sorgte sogleich für Furore. Es ist uns gelungen, im Rahmen des Berliner Festival of Lights weltbekannte Kunstwerke aus dem New Yorker MoMA mit spektakulären Projektionen nach Berlin zu holen!

Auf der wunderschönen Terrasse des Monbijouparks machten tausende Festival-Besucher sowie flanierende Passanten Halt, bestaunten und genossen die Meisterwerke im Lichtkunstformat auf der Rückseite des Bode-Museums.

Im Oktober 2018 konnten wir die ehrwürdige „Alte Nationalgalerie“ als spektakuläre Projektionsfassade für eines der berühmtesten Gemälde von Paul Gauguin gewinnen, die „Tahitianischen Fischerinnen“. Dank unseres Vereinsmitgliedes, der Museum&Location Veranstaltungsgesellschaft der Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin mbH, wurde dieses Projekt möglich.

Der direkt gegenüberliegende James-Simon-Park wurde an jedem Festival Abend zu einem der beliebtesten Treffpunkte. Unzählige Besucher bewunderten die einzigartige Atmosphäre und den einmaligen Blick auf die Museumsinsel. Die Inszenierung der Fassade und des Säulengangs wurde zu einem der meist fotografiertesten Motive des ganzen Festivals.

We are actively planning further projects.
