The exhibition puts a design icon of everyday culture and the epitome of "Britishness" as an art object in the center: The red telephone box. Being a national symbol and popular icon at the same time in her home country, it once came as a present of the British allies to Berlin.
With this district-wide exhibition the Kommunale Galerie Berlin commemorates the presence of the Allied British Forces in the german capital after the end of World War II 70 years ago. The use of new artistic approaches as well as the connection of urban space and art space form the common context of all the work.
The red telephone boxes
The red telephone boxes with their floor space of one square metre will be transformed into temporary exhibition venues in public space. Urban interventions replace their former locations. In the five “art satellites” renowned German and British artists will show current positions of art from photography through painting to urban art. In the "base station", the Kommunale Galerie Berlin, the works of the participating artists are united in a group show.
