One of the most striking expressions of this creative flair is found in street art. Berlin and Los Angeles count among the world centers of spontaneous art in public space. In this panel, artists and critics from both cities will discuss the role of street art and its social and political potential. The discussion is organized by The Wende Museum . Speakers: Stefan Kloo (Goethe-Institut Los Angeles), Lars Krückeberg (GRAFT architects), Kimo (street artist, Berlin), Shandu One (street artist, Los Angeles), and Farrah Karapetian (visual artist, Los Angeles). The panel will be moderated by the Wende’s Chief Curator, Joes Segal.
