Experience Art at the Bar


Experience Art at the Bar

KW Institute for Contemporary Art has been setting art trends in Berlin since the nineties. American artist Robert Wilhite set up an experimental installation in the building’s basement called Bob’s POGO Bar. Creatives from various backgrounds host each week with different performance styles. The host decides the content and provides original drinks at the bar. This project delivers power and allure, which will refresh Berlin’s art scene.
