Is there anything better than art, bikes, good people, and beer & pizza to enjoy after a long ride? And would you like to meet fellow bike lovers while experiencing neighborhoods of Berlin you might not have rolled through before?
Art Spin is bringing it all together!
Inspired by Art Spin Toronto, which has been around since 2009, Vanessa Brazeau decided to bring it to Berlin. This year marks the second anniversary of the interactive bike tour stopping at various points along the route for art performances, installations and peeks into art-related venues and galleries.
This year’s tour is starting at Insel der Jugend in Treptower Park. When reaching the final stop at Rummelsburg you’ll have experienced „an aerial silk performance from a historic crane“ as it says on Art Spin’s Facebook page. Plus contemporary dance, a visit to a gallery, and more. For a great soundtrack there will be beat box street music riding with the tour.
And the fun won’t stop at Rummelsburg where even more art, graffiti, sound & light installations, can be relished alongside some pizza and drinks from Casa di Legno.
