Photography Playground

Interactive Exhibition
Posted by Gestalten—04/2013

For the time of four weeks, Berlin Mitte's Opernwerkstätten will be transformed into a playground for photography.

Initiated by Olympus on the occasion of launching a new camera model, the exhibition invites visitors to try out the product while interacting with the showcased artworks. Gestalten featured artists Numen and Zimoun belong to the group of 12 international participating artists, creating an adventurous setting for the photographic exploration.

NET Berlin, the interwoven structures installed by Numen, enable visitors to explore space from a floating level, and between chaos and order, Zimoun's exhibition is a complex architectural structure made of industrial products like DC motors, cork balls, and cardboard boxes. Other installations also use light or sound to shape the playgorund's landscape.

This exceptional show can be visited daily from 11 AM – 7 PM. The entrance is free.

Explore a sample of Numen's work in Desire and get an impression of Zimoun in A Touch of Code.
