Berlin to open street art museum

Museum library will contain extensive street art archive.
The Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art is set to open in Berlin's Schöneberg district over the weekend of 16-17 September.
Berlin's first museum dedicated to street art, the facility will comprise exhibition spaces as well as a library devoted entirely to contemporary urban art.
The library's collection is made up of more than 5,000 publications donated by Martha Cooper, the American photojournalist who is best known for documenting the birth of urban art in New York City during the 1970s and 1980s. The archive will be accessible to both the public and scholars of the street art- movement which has strong roots in the German capital.
Established by Urban Nation, a cultural foundation which supports urban art projects across the city since 2013, the museum has been funded with a €900,000 grant from the Berlin Lotto Foundation.
