Berlin International School

Birgit Stigter has painted the walls of the Berlin International School cafeteria. Her “Friends” figures bring a new atmosphere and identity to a place where many people meet. She would like to depict the way people interact and connect. Through the combination of the form and the movement of the figures and their green outlines, the “Friends” embody openness, freshness, power and a strong sense of happiness. Being a place of constant movement, exchange and travel, the “Friends” almost become symbolic of B.I.S., a place where people from all over the world come together to learn, be inspired and to respect one another.
