Art Behind Bars in Berlin

Posted on May 7, 2016

Art behind bars today from Berlin in a strip of town that boasts piles of posters for concerts and DJs and a lot of visual anarchy. There are also many bars with delicious German beers along this strip under the train tracks on street level, but that’s not what we were looking for on the day we found these. These long-closed windows are still guarded by semi-decorative rusted thin iron beams and artists reach through them to wheat-paste a visual missive on the off-chance that you will peer between the bars to get the full effect.

Acting in concert with these remnants of an earlier time, you sometimes imagine the figurative subjects to be in jail, maybe in need of liberation. Here are a selection of images from photographer Jaime Rojo of art behind bars for your enjoyment.
