By now the PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND has fascinated more than 350.000 fans of art and photography in Europe. Equipped with an OM-D or an Olympus PEN camera they photographically discovered a whole new world.
Now this very exceptional event comes again to Berlin: with a new name, a new exhibition concept and in a new location: the Kraftwerk (powerhouse) in the Köpenicker Straße 70 in Berlin-Mitte.
From 1 September until 24 September 2017 the OLYMPUS PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND invites visitors to explore the interactive artworks of internationally renowned artists, such as Thilo Frank, Xaver Hirsch, Poetic Kinetics and many more.
The entrance is free of charge. The storage card with the photos can be taken home as a memento.
If you want to avoid waiting in line, you should register in advance.

OLYMPUS PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND
Olympus committed itself to make photography come alive. Therefor, an essential element is the PLAYGROUND, which opened its doors for the first time in 2013. 15 other playgrounds followed as well as a photographic art path in Zingst. Millions of pictures have been taken during the last four years: always new ones, always different ones.
Every exhibition organized in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Denmark has been conceptualized individually. Yet, all playgrounds share the unique possibility to photographically explore art in space. The concept has been extended to the entire range of Olympus’ optical products and is now named PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND
Some 70 years ago a doctor asked us to develop a gastro camera to help him save lives. Ever since fulfilling his wish we have been realizing people’s ideas and dreams. And “Your Vision, Our Future” became both our leitmotiv and corporate slogan.
Persistently creating innovative value such as endoscopes that help save lives, digital cameras that stimulate emotions and life science products providing security and peace of mind has led to market leadership in many areas.
Staying ahead in our thinking however requires platforms where disciplines are bridged, know-how exchanged and creative experimentation enabled.
The OLYMPUS PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND is one such platform. An interactive exhibition that tickle one’s fancy with spectacular visual and hands-on experiences of the highest order providing optical sensations best viewed with the world’s leading lenses we take so much pride in making.
With a view to a thrill, turn the tools we make into the toys it takes for you to enjoy yourself, your ideas and your dreams at the OLYMPUS PERSPECTIVE PLAYGROUND
