As part of the city partnership between London and Berlin, the Senate Chancellery is supporting the exhibition “ONE SQUARE METRE – Photography Meets Urban Art”.

The red telephone box, with its surface area of one square metre, is the epitome of Britishness. The exhibition “ONE SQUARE METRE – Photography Meets Urban Art” gives this design icon of everyday culture centre stage. The red telephone boxes once came to Berlin as a gift from the British Allies. Seventy years after the war, Kommunale Galerie Berlin is recalling the presence of the British allies in Berlin with an exhibition in various parts of the city.

The red telephone boxes are transformed into temporary exhibition venues in public space. Urban interventions replace them in their former locations. Current positions in German and British art will be shown in five “art satellites”, while the works of the participating artists are united in a group show at Kommunale Galerie Berlin.

Friday, 4 September 2015, 7:00 p.m.
