South Embassy and Masomenos, from French origin, have established a unique connection with Latin America. Through their extensive travels to the region, they have developed a deep affinity for Latin American culture, which serves as a bridge between them.
Masomenos' numerous trips to Latin America have left a lasting impression on their artistic vision. Inspired by the vibrant colors, rich traditions, and passionate rhythms, they have incorporated elements of Latin American culture into their own work.
South Embassy, a proponent of cultural exchange, has provided a platform for Masomenos to share their passion for Latin American culture and engage with a diverse audience. This partnership has facilitated collaborations with local artists and artisans, enriching both parties' artistic endeavors.
The alliance between South Embassy and Masomenos celebrates the beauty and diversity of Latin American culture. It exemplifies the power of cultural exchange and the mutual appreciation for artistic expression. Together, they create a dynamic dialogue that transcends borders and fosters a deeper understanding of both French and Latin American cultures.
Katiuska Natera is proud to partner with South Embassy to bring "Masomenos POP" to Berlin. The artist duo Masomenos has always created various art objects in addition to their music. In "Masomenos POP" visitors can discover a part of their multidimensional journey, where music and art merge uniquely. For 20 years, their platform "Welcome to Masomenos" has offered a creative playground for alternative art. The aim of "Masomenos POP" is to make their art accessible to everyone. The project is a tribute to artist Keith Haring and his spirit of love.
Hi everyone, today we have the pleasure of having artist masomenos and curator Katiuska Natera with us to discuss the exciting upcoming project in Berlin, masomenos POP. Thank you both for being here today.
masomenos, let's start with you. Could you tell us a bit about the concept and inspiration behind masomeno's POP?
masomenos: Absolutely, thank you for having us with you. masomenos POP is a project that aims to explore the intersection of pop culture and contemporary art. The inspiration for this comes from my fascination with how pop culture influences and shapes our society. I wanted to create a space that blurs the lines between art, music, fashion and design and offers the audience a unique immersive experience.
Cecilia: That sounds fascinating! Can you give us a glimpse of what visitors can see and experience at masomenos POP?
masomenos: Of course! masomeno's POP will be a multidimensional experience, presenting a diverse range of artistic media. Visitors can expect a curated exhibition showcasing my latest artworks that blend vibrant colors, playful imagery and elements of pop culture. There will also be interactive installations, live music performances and even a pop-up shop with limited-edition merchandise inspired by the project. Our goal is to appeal to all the senses and create an immersive environment that takes visitors into the world of masomenos POP.
Cecilia: That really sounds like a holistic experience! Now we turn to you, Katiuska. As the curator of masomenos POP, what made you decide to work with masomenos on this project and what impact do you expect on the Berlin art scene?

In terms of impact, we believe masomeno's POP will bring a vibrant energy to the Berlin art scene. It challenges conventional notions of art by opening itself up to pop culture and making it accessible and relatable to a wider audience.
