Hatch Museum, the world’s first sticker art & culture museum is back in the game. The Berlin sticker museum celebrates sticktivism in its all glory, not forgetting influences of the commercial world and advertising medium.
After finding our way to an unmarked inner yard of Brunnenstrasse 196 for the grand opening on May 7th, we made our way through a relaxed skater crowd to find an impressive collection of sticker art. Framed and exhibited were pieces from notorious street artists such as Obey and Prost, side by side with commercial stickers and anonymous artwork.
Besides the main collection, the museum visitors are treated with the Koaala exhibition. The handmade screenprints of this Berliner artist is a fresh collection of minimalist, yet eloquent illustration. The gallery space is used in a creative manner, with overlapping prints hanging on strings. The setting proved inspirational for both sticker fans and illustration geeks.
