Recently JBAK took part in an interesting project called “Spätkauf Kunst Aktion #4”. For four years running, artists from Germany and around the globe have been asked to create artwork either in or on one of Berlins most special treasures… The Späti.
A Späti (or Spätkauf) is basically an all night or at least late-night convenience store where Berliners acquire their supplies for the day/evening/night/late-night (beer, tobacco, snacks…). ‘Spätkauf Kunst Aktion’ brings art to these locations and therefor into the communities and to the people who live there. It is a nice project and JBAK was proud to be a part of it. Here are a couple of shots of the painting that was created. Super big thanks go out to the very special Serhat who works at the Späti and posed for the portrait.
If you are in Berlin you can see the painting (and say hello to Serhat) at Pannierstr. 41,
