The Monster Project + Urban Nation
When URBAN NATION Museum for Contemporary Art invited us to bring The Monster Project to Berlin, it wasn't hard to say yes.
We kicked off the project in July 2018 by welcoming almost 100 children to Urban Nation's production office. The kids spent a wonderful afternoon drawing monsters with us. After the event, we collected their amazing creatures and passed them along to professional artists from all over the world, asking them to reimagine the drawings in their own unique styles.

The aim of the project is to teach children about the power of their imaginations and to encourage them to pursue their creative potential. It shows them that their ideas are important and exposes them to the magic of art and collaboration. Plus, it's just really, really fun.
We're so excited to finally share the results of this wonderful partnership in our online gallery as well as in a live exhibition in Berlin! You can see the monsters in person now through Sept. 30, 2018 at Bülowstraße 97 (Open Tues–Sun, 10–6 PM).
