Berlin Mattresses

Moving apartments in Berlin can be difficult. Hiring a car, or jumping on the U-Bahn to haul all your stuff from one place to another and often up multiple flights of stairs can leave you weary. Consequently, people often leave heavier items behind, sometimes these get picked up by lucky passersby, but usually they stay on the streets until they’re eventually cleared away. No other items find this fate more often than mattresses, so much so that on urban artist set up an Instagram account to document the sad, graffitied and forgotten mattresses that adorn the streets of Berlin. Berlin Mattresses is quirky, humorous and sometimes a little political, showing off the unusual and unique side of the city’s urban art.
