Exhibition

The Art of Skate

10.05.2019 - 30.06.2019

The exhibits address both the history of skateboarding and the skaters’ view of their urban environment. 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.
