The Art of Skate

10.05.2019 - 30.06.2019

Photographers and artists from the skateboarding scene show how it has influenced their artistic development. The aim of the exhibition is, on the one hand, to portray the multi-faceted, interdisciplinary potential of skateboarding as an art form and, on the other hand, to promote a dialogue regarding the different areas of life of skaters and non-skaters.
