Peninsula Has Something to Say
In Berlin we know, there’s no end to the art. After a thrilling Art Week that took us from here to there and back again, we’re ready to head to a single destination for art, opening and party all in one.
In the last decade a flourishing group of Italian artists have made Berlin their home. Seeking to engage with the thousands of creatives found here, a number of these artists formed the platform Peninsula. For their inaugural exhibition, titled dotLand, each of the collective’s members invited a creative to exhibit, ranging from architects and musicians to artists.
Taking place in a partially renovated space boasting 7-meter high ceilings in Berlin Mitte, the event is sure to be a lively and welcoming gathering of Berlin’s international creative scene.
