Art collective Die Dixons are behind the Berlin Mural Festival, which was founded in 2018. Its second edition in September 2019 saw huge murals from international artists appear on walls, all with the support of Deutsche Wohnen – including in areas outside the usual street art hotspots, such as Marzahn and Hellersdorf.
This year, the programme will feature exclusively Berlin-based street artists, who were hard hit by the pandemic. With one special aspect: two artists with different techniques creating a shared mural together. Deutsche Wohnen is offering up building facades in the districts of Charlottenburg, Mitte, Kreuzberg and Neukölln for the occasion.
You can find out this year’s detailed line-up on the BMF’s Instagram and Facebook page. You can find all the murals and information on where they are and the artist who painted them in the festival’s mobile app. The app has a special feature: an augmented reality guide that makes the experience even more impressive.

BMF 2021 starts on 9 August. It will come to an end with an incredible night walk on 4 September, where the finished murals will be illuminated and enhanced with projections.
Back in full technicolour
Deutsche Wohnen and Die Dixons have collaborated with success for several years outside of the festival, too. Various murals have been created in Berlin, Frankfurt/Main and Dresden as part of the project, in the spirit of “neighbourhood art”. The murals brighten up our neighbourhoods and make them something special. More neighbourhoods will join the art-lovers’ party as part of Berlin Mural Festival 2021 with their very own masterpieces. The murals are a hit with residents: we got a lot of positive feedback from tenants at BMF 2019.
