Kulturforum - Berlin
Kulturforum. Ink on Canvas. 11" x 17". Kulturforum is something of a misnomer, as the name actually refers to the cluster of innovative modernist buildings in Berlin's Potsdamer Platz, while skateboarders congregate in the piazetta specifically. Though the name doesn't have the same ring to it as Republique or Southbank, American skateboarders will certainly recognize this spot from Static III, the French Fred b-sides from a few years back, and countless clips from tours through Berlin. Nomenclature aside, this no-bust spot has been heavily sessioned for years, probably because it has something for everyone. Jumpers will gravitate towards the double set, rails, and marble hubbas, street purists might skate over a block or fiddle with the unique ledge to double bank configuration, and a select few will use everything available to string long lines together, as Jan Kliewer did in Strongest of the Strange. Part of an on-going series titled "Boarding Pass". "Boarding Pass" is a series of Posters celebrating some of Skateboarding's most iconic, beloved, and amazing skate spots, world wide.
