If there is one thing going on in Berlin right now that I recommend to absolutely everyone doing it’s this year’s edition of the Olympus Photography Playground that’s currently taking place at the Opernwerkstätten. What it is is a big exhibition with nine amazing artworks by international artists AlexandLiane, 3Destruct [ANTIVJ], Clemens Behr, Dean Chamberlain, Leandro Erlich, Philip Beesley, Anna Bruns & Thomas Brown, Transforma and Maser that are actually more than artworks, they are entire sets. And the fun part about it, is that you can walk into these sets and do something that so many exhibition in museums and galleries strictly forbid: taking photos. And boy is this fun. You can either focus on the artwork and explore it from every angle with your camera, or you can jump into the picture and become a part of the artwork yourself. Let’s call this #artselfie.

To give you the best possible experience at the Olympus Photography Playground you can borrow one of the new Olympus OM-D E-M10 cameras for the exhibition and keep the SD card afterwards. Last week I took a bunch of friends to the opening and we all tried out one of these babies. While the design is reminescent of old analog cameras, the technology is slick and new. This system camera has way to many great features for me to name here, but the one that I enjoyed the most was the wireless transfer of the photos directly onto my smartphone so I could post them on Instagram. What a blessing!

After the jump you can enjoy some of our photos that we took with these super cool cameras. If you wanna play around yourself you still have time until May 25 daily from 11-19h (also on the Easter holidays). In addition to the exhibition there is also a program of panel talks, workshops and live sessions for you to enjoy.
