  • This modern art sculpture is called House Ball because it looks like a house that’s been rolled up, scrunched up into a ball. A fun and mildly amusing sculpture, but any hidden meaning escapes me.  more »
  • I love that you can find all types of art and sculptures in Berlin; look around you! Just a few minutes walk from Checkpoint Charlie you will find this 11 metre pop art sculpture of Claes Oldenberg...  more »

  • For those who enjoy contemporary art and street art installations, the House Ball sculpture at Bethlehem Church Square is interesting to see. Created by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen in 1997, this is a 11 meter tall Pop Art style installation. Its shape and form is that of roundish bundle that includes household items and is held together with rope. It is a provocative artwork with colours that help it stick out against the buildings in all directions. You can see House Ball just a few minutes walk from Checkpoint Charlie and Friedrichstrasse in the Mitte District.
  • A stone's throw from Checkpoint Charlie, the artwork is worth a moment while visiting Berlin.
