United Buddy Bears – Cristina Sakamoto

The exhibition started in 2002 in Berlin, and since then, the approximately 140 bears have been on a World Tour in 21 exhibitions in the five continents, in cities like Hong Kong, Istanbul, Tokyo, Seoul, Sydney, Vienna, Cairo, Jerusalem, Warsaw, Pyongyang, Buenos Aires, Montevideo; in the summer of 2011, they are back to Berlin.

Artists from each of the countries recognized by the United Nations designed a Buddy Bear with artistic elements from their countries, bringing together a great cultural diversity in the same art, which enabled more than 22 million visitors to experience a journey around the globe through the Buddy Bears.

The Buddy Bears are now in an exhibition on the famous Kurfürstendamm street in Berlin. More information can be found on their official website
