According to the press release the title of the exhibition is a humorous reference to the official Gallery Weekend Berlin, which takes place at the same time. The idea is to bridge the gap left by the official Gallery Weekend providing a space for urban contemporary artists, presenting diverse artistic perspectives following the idea of One City – One Weekend – One Gallery – 58 artists.

The exhibition will count with works by s internationally renowned artists such as Above, BLO, James Reka, Twoone and 44 Flavours, as well as promising young talents including Duncan Passmore, Christoph Rode, Johannes Mundinger, Julia Benz, Look, Mario Mankey and Pablo Benzo.
