Long Description:

The White Pig is a mixture between Art Gallery and Underground Pub; heavily inspired by Punk, but open to anything out of the ordinary. Main icon of the placce is an elevated Trabant 601.

With more than 2 million cars build, the Trabant, or "Trabbi" for short was the most common vehicle on East German streets. After the collapse of the Eastern Block, it became a cult car, comparable to the Volkswagen Beetle in the West, and artistically painted "Trabbis" can be found in many places in the former East Germany.

This one is painted in a Hippie style, fitting into the attire of the place.

A lot of "Trash Art" is on display inside and outside, but the car is the most visible sign of the establishment.

Vehicle type: Trabant 601

Artist: White Pig Kunstverein

Movable?: no
