Yasha Young

Director & Curator, Urban Nation (Berlin)

Yasha Young is the director and curator of URBAN NATION.

URBAN NATION Museum Berlin is 10 years in the making, providing a masterclass on designing a thoroughly modern museum from the ground up and building a community to achieve it.

URBAN NATION is much more than just a building. Urban Space all over the world is declared an inspiring, integrative zone of action where artists, creatives and the public come together. At its heart are artists who think differently, create new things and exhibit, form networks and enjoy a creative dialogue. It approaches people, embraces neighbours, activates communitites and brings together cultures in urban districts. URBAN NATION takes responsibility for the city and gives something back to it: urban art and enthusiasm for our neighbourhoods.

Her creative vision is catalyst to the creation and evolvement of the two internationally renowned Project M/ and OneWall series. As former gallery owner, curator and producer, Young is deeply involved in the international urban arts sphere.
