Tape Art at the Museum für Islamische Kunst

22.06.2018 to 12.08.2018

Intrigued by the collection of the Museum für Islamische Kunst, the Berliner Tape Art Crew TAPE OVER is going to transform one of the halls at the Pergamonmuseum on Museumsinsel Berlin in a live performance on Friday, 22 June 2018.

TAPE OVER, comprised of nearly a dozen creative minds, began working in Berlin in 2011 and is active internationally. Its versatile style, informed by organic and abstract forms, is rich in detail and includes elements of Street Art and Urban Art. The young artists react directly to the site-specific conditions of their emerging works, which they integrate into the overall appearance of each location. Tape Art, a genre that began in the 1960s and was originally implemented in public spaces, involves the creation of large-scale and generally temporary installations whose meticulously planned patterns are produced using variously coloured, structured and sized tape during what is known as a Live Tape Action.

Through numerous presentations, interventions and special event formats, the Museum für Islamische Kunst has increasingly opened itself to contemporary perspectives and often invites artists to engage with its collection.

A special presentation of the Museum für Islamische Kunst and the Education and Outreach, Visitor Services department – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin in cooperation with TAPE OVER.

Live Tape Action: Friday, 22 June 2018, starting at 10 am

Due to a technical issue, the lift is out of service until further notice, meaning the Museum für Islamische Kunst is not currently wheelchair accessible. The major architectural exhibits – such as the Processional Way, featuring the Ishtar Gate and the Market Gate of Miletus – are still accessible to people with mobility issues.
