From June 17th through to July 7th 2011, DC will bring the Burning Ink Art Show to Berlin, at the well-known downtown venue MadeMyDay Collab Room, Torstrasse 66, near AlexanderPlatz. Just last month, the Burning Ink Art Show launched in New York City at Frank’s Chop Shop on the Lower East Side. In NYC, 12 drawings were either going to be tattooed or burned at the end of the show. We can sure expect the same happening in Berlin, where buyers are faced with the choice of watching the art pieces set of fire, or save the art by having it inked onto their skin. Here are the details from Lodown Magazine.
