High quality photo prints, printed textiles, and small sculptures – the art vending machine, at the Jewish Museum Berlin from August 2013 to June 2018, offered 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. Once they were sold, they were gone.

Contemporary Art for 6 Euros
Visitors were able to draw a piece of contemporary art from the machine – a redesigned and rebuilt vending machine from the 1970s – for 6 euros, payable in three two-euro coins. (How did a vending machine start selling art? Find out from a post on our blog.)
