One of the most interesting art-related things going on this arty summer in Berlin is a dynamic collaborative exhibition in Program Gallery in Mitte, entitled “The Art of Conversation: London—Berlin“. From January to March 2010 the participants, 10 London based design studios and 10 Berlin based design studios, played a visual game of Chinese Whispers. Each participant was presented with a work/idea from the previous participant in the chain via a Skype chat, they then had 3 days to interpret it and forward their results to the next participant. These responses could take any form; from sculpture to performance, photograph to text.
