The Art Car Berlin

The idea behind The Art Car Project is the provision of this unique vehicle for film productions, photo shootings and special events like the Berlin Film Festival, the Berlin Art Fair and the various Berlin Fashion shows. Furthermore according to personal wishes Art lovers and collectors are welcomed to make a booking hiring the car including a chauffeur for selected City tours covering galleries, museum and artists studios.

The Art car actually is a seven seat Volvo TE 264 built in 1980 and stretched by the Italian car manufactory Bertone.

The title Volkswagen ironically is playing with the previous history of the vehicle as a limousine for the politburo members of the GDR government. The text writings, a personal city and mind mapping by the artist Jan Smejkal were executed in Silver lack brush strokes on the Prussian blue car body on a former eastern Berlin border territory in the year 2000.
