1st Anniversary – Artconnect Berlin Birthday Review!

Two weeks after celebrating our first birthday with an endless amount of events and activities, we’re still feeling the effects of it and what it means for us as a company.

Although we had been working tirelessly for weeks before our first anniversary, the event officially began on Thursday the 9th of August. With all the wonderful artworks donated by over 60 artists, we were able to hold an exhibition at our Boddinstraße 62 headquarters. The rooms were covered wall-to-wall with works of all different types from artists of completely different backgrounds including paintings, photographs, sculptures, and videos. Many people came by to check out the large range of artworks, while others scoped out certain works for Saturday’s fundraising auction. The opening went on later than anticipated with many people hanging around to chat with some of the artists that were in attendance, and others talking among themselves on our wonderful street.
