Giving Urban Contemporary Art a platform is the aim of the Urban Nation Museum opened in 2017 in Berlin-Schöneberg. The idea is to bring together artists from around the world, to foster young talents, to bring urban art to a large audience and to be an archive of this temporary art form. By removing ceilings and inserting diagonal bridges, Graft architects have created in a building from the 19th Century Gründerzeit an exciting sequence of work over two floors. There are also revolving exhibitions of art on the modular facade.

The Urban Nation Museum shows one big exhibition each year. For its inaugural exhibition 150 international and local artists were selected who created art, mostly on canvas, specially for the museum. They included such big names in the scene as Shepard Fairey, Fintan Magee, Vhils, Herakut, JR and Lora Zombie. The exhibition shows a cross-section of various different genres and techniques and covers the entire range of Urban Contemporary Art from text-based works to portraits and action art to pop-art, photo-realism and conceptual art.

The Urban Nation network, which is part of the charitable foundation Berliner Leben, sets great store on working together with the neighbourhood community, and holds regular workshops for kids from north Schöneberg. And well-known names in the Urban Art world have left sprayed and stuck murals around the museum on the facades in Bülowstrasse.
