URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART is an international institution for urban contemporary art (UCA) and projects.

The vision of a global art community, a network without limits, became reality on September 16th when URBAN NATION MUSEUM FOR URBAN CONTEMPORARY ART opened its doors. Its Creative Director and catalyst for the vision is Yasha Young. URBAN NATION is supported by Berliner Leben, a foundation of Gewobag.

With the support of LOTTO-Stiftung a building from the Wilhelminian era in the district of Berlin-Schöneberg has been converted into the URBAN NATION museum.

The URBAN NATION initiative goes beyond the classical notion of the museum and reinvents the idea with activities that have an impact beyond the four walls of the museum. Since 2013, URBAN NATION under the curatorial direction of Miss Young has been inviting international luminaries and aspiring talents of urban contemporary art to Berlin to show their works within the urban fabric of Berlin: on building façades, house walls and shop windows. URBAN NATION has been transforming Berlin's facades into a giant outdoor gallery and connecting people with their city using outdoor art and integrative neighbourhood projects.

URBAN NATION is a place of dialogue, a meeting place and an archive.

  • A must-see if you are interested in contemporary art. You can really feel the alternative vibes of Berlin when it comes to culture and arts. Plus, free entry.

  • It was such a beautiful experience- you can not only find out really interesting facts about history of black people in Berlin, but also feel the unique vibe of street culture. I really loved vibrant paintings and photos! Also the room with walls all covered in graffiti makes a perfect photoshoot location. Bonus points for the WC- it's a little bit hidden (but revealing it here feels like stealing a part of a experience from the future visitors).
  • I visited this gallery couple if days ago, it was hosting then the photography world of „Martha cooper“, I was very impressed specifically with the „ street play“ and „ Graffiti section“… a beautiful and well organized Gallery , would definitely revisit in the future
