Street artists from Berlin took their visual ideas to the streets of the “Altstad”. The younger visitors were also given a chance to join our graffiti and painting workshops, organized by the graffiti artists Fonso & Xuehka. The “Altstad” streets were also taken over by various street musicians that regularly play on Berlin's famous streets and areas. A mapping installation was projected on the wall of a building by the Italian mapping artist Tiziano Mirabella.
