Berlin Now Has an Art Space in a Swimming Pool

'POOL' is the series of creative events taking place at experimental art space, Tropez, in Sommerbad Homboldthain

This summer, the biggest lido in Berlin’s Wedding district exists both as a pool and as gallery space by the name of Tropez. As part of exhibition series, “POOL”, Tropez takes over the running of Sommerbad Homboldthain and hosts a plethora of creative events to pimp your summer dip-and-sip.

Envisioned by one of NICHE art tour’s co-founders, “POOL” pushes for the visibility of emerging artists through its experimental series of events. With a focus on learning and accessibility, the diverse programme presents the dynamic nature of Berlin’s creative scene against an idyllic backdrop.

“Europool”, the 3-part contribution from Berlin-famous “Creamcake” collective, sees Jay Boogie, Jeshi and Mobilegirl join a lineup of contemporary and performance artists to explore European identity and aesthetics through art. Unified by political activism and queer voices in their work, the artists at “Europool” seek to demonstrate the role of creative expression in social change and reaffirm the values of democracy and peace within Europe.

Among the other artists featured in Tropez’s varied programme are Frankfurt/Berlin-based Sofia Duchovny, film artist Martin Ebner and Copenhagen-based visual artist and chef, Søren Aagaard, whose participation will include a cultural history of French fries. The “POOL” series runs until 3 September 2017 and the entire program is available at tropeztropez.de.
