We Love 8Bit

After the great feedback on the first 'we love 8bit' art show in Hamburg that was initiated by Thomas Carls and Tim Carstens, Freiland approached the initiators with a proposition to bring the exhibition to Vienna and even Berlin. With each new city the show has grown, and in Berlin – the last city out – there were about 100 artist and even more 8bit-related artworks. The list of contributors includes not only European artists, but also several artists from the United States and South America. We are currently in the planning of continuing the Art Show and we look forward to all that await us in the future. Finally, thanks again to everyone who has contributed and helped.

We love 8Bit is an exhibit based on the childhood nostalgia and artistic reminiscence of 8bit games. Conceptualized and initiated by Thomas Carls and Tim Carstens, the show made its debut in Hamburg, Germany and was promptly sent to Vienna, Austria, and shortly after to Berlin, Germany.

Berlin was the third and largest exhibit, featuring 100 artists and over 150 paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs and much more. The location was carefully chosen: the Karl-Marx-Buchhandlung, a staple in Berlin's growing urban landscape, graciously provided its space. The city's Computergame Museum also stepped in and passionately provided its support.
