Almost 600 sqm seems quite sizeable for a gallery that until recently was in charming, much smaller rooms in Berlin-Mitte’s Gipsstrasse. Still, at the opening of POTSE 68, Circle Culture Gallery’s inaugural exhibition of their huge new space on the Gallery Mile of Potsdamer Strasse, 23 artists from eight different countries and some 800 guests filled up the space to the brim.

A venue of this size allows for a very different scale of artworks, such as the huge mural (4×7 metres) by American artist Maya Hayuk. A popping fizzing backdrop for a photo.

The new gallery venue in Potsdamer Strasse 68, just a stone’s throw from the Neue Nationalgalerie, is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 12-6pm.
