Salvador Dalí's 114th Birthday at DaliBerlin

Salvador Dalís 114. Geburtstag

„Feliz cumpleaños!” – DaliBerlin wishes „Happy Birthday!“ and celebrated with an extraordinary program and guided tours with a special prize for everyone due to the 114th birthday of Salvador Dalí.

Due to the 114th birthday of the great surrealist on May 11, 2018, "Dalí – Die Ausstellung am Potsdamer Platz" once again offered many surprises and presents for all visitors and all ages:

"Art goes under your skin": Dalí fans, who have a Dalí tattoo on their skin, received free admission to the museum when presenting their work of art.

We also provided a very special show act by "LEVEL UP", the current German Champion in breakdancing and promising young talents from the "Flying Steps Academy". At 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. the dancers surprised all museum guests with an action packed dance performance as a homage to Salvador Dalí, who, as a multifaceted exceptional artist, also designed costumes and stage sets for ballet and opera. Ten years ago, the "Flying Steps" founded the "Flying Steps Academy" in Berlin. It is not only the largest, urban dance school in Germany, but is also considered the first urban dance promotion center since. From mid-May on, they will perform their big show "Flying Illusion" at the “Theater am Potsdamer Platz” within close proximity to the museum.

„Come into my brain“, Dalí once called upon the masses. All visitors were invited to accept this invitation by visiting the museum „Dalí – Die Ausstellung am Potsdamer Platz“, where they could delve into the surreal world of the Spanish artist. Together with Dalí experts, the so-called Dalí_Scouts, visitors enjoyed a guided tour through the exhibition in dialogue. Every day five public guided tours are provided in German and English. The tours start at 12:30 p.m., 2:00 p.m. (English), 3:30 p.m., 5:00 p.m. und 6:30 p.m. (English). As a present for everyone due to Dalí’s birthday, all guided tours were available for a special price of 3,50 € (instead of 7,00 €).

All little guests also enjoyed a colorful Chupa Chups lollipop as a gift to take away, for which Salvador Dalí created the world-famous flower logo in 1969.
