Tape That – Turning Sticky Tape into Spectacular Art Installations

By Andrew Cottrill . October 24, 2017

You may have already seen Tape That’s astonishing artwork.

You can find it everywhere in Berlin, from underground nightclubs, abandoned buildings, music festivals and art galleries. Influenced by street art, architecture, graphic design and performance art, the Berlin-based tape art collective Tape That is paving the way for tape art around the globe.

Tape That has used tape as a medium since 2011. Their works range from complex and colorful tape and light installations to minimalist black and white murals. Their work captures the amazing possibility of create something new …something beautiful… out of an everyday, mundane object such as sticky tape.

While focussing on Berlin, Tape That is also active in many other cities, nationally and internationally, with recent and ongoing projects in Cambodia (Phnom Penh, Battam Bang), China (Guangzhou), Egypt (Cairo, Al-Minya), Namibia (Windhoek), Peru (Lima), Qatar (Doha), Russia (Yekaterinburg), Saudi Arabia (Riyadh), Sweden (Stockholm), United Kingdom (London), Vietnam (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City), USA (Los Angeles).

“We create artworks made solely out of adhesive tape – tapes of all colors, sizes and materials. Our artworks range from room-filling installations to abstract structures combined with light projections and classical tape art murals – we strive to push the boundaries of what most people perceive as possible to do with ordinary tape.

“Since tape art is a young art form, people are generally amazed by the idea itself and the ability to witness the creative process first hand. We often create our artworks as live performances in which the audience gets the chance to interact with the artists and to follow the progress of the artwork.” – Stefan Busch, Tape That Collective.
