Art Vending Machine

Permanent Exhibition

View of a small part of the Jewish Museum Berlin's art vending machine

High quality photo prints, printed textiles, and small sculptures – the art vending machine, at the Jewish Museum Berlin since August 2013, has a wide range of surprising contemporary art hiding in its 30 compartments. The small-format unicums were created by international Jewish artists living in Berlin. All works of art were made exclusively for the art vending machine and are hand signed limited editions.
