BAM PRACTICE is a subdivision of BAM under which we bring our own projects to life. Setting aside over-conceptualized briefs and strategies, this is our carte blanche for ideas and dreams. We act as a social platform where we nurture dialogue with creatives that inspire us.
Hank Grüner’s solo exhibition Casa de la Madre y el Niño is a journey in time and mind-space. Paintings, drawings, sculptures and found objects explore the narrative of rejection and inclusion. All in the light of nostalgia. For this exhibition he has gathered his life-long companions. What first appears as trivial objects are in fact old friends and means of survival. The vernissage took place on April 28th, 2022 at the BAM RAUM in Berlin.
On October 8th, 2021 we opened a natural wine POP-UP in Berlin-Kreuzberg together with the Danish lifestyle company VinSuperNaturel. The interior was fully designed by the Danish creative studio Spacon X and invites the guests to taste and buy Vinsupernaturels natural wines and play basketball on site of BAMs Kreuzberg office. The common denominator of the three collaborators has been: the interplay of street culture, art, fashion and design.
In cooperation with gallery Ruttkowski;68, we welcomed Henrik Vibskov to our space. For this, BAM transformed into Windows;68, where Vibskov presented his new, multidisciplinary artistic cosmos with the visitors. With Nervous Elephants at Windows;68, Henrik Vibskov introduced new works on paper, sculptures, wood puzzles and an inflatable window installation. The vernissage took place on Friday, September 17th.

In commemoration of our new Berlin space and the proud partnership with Gonzalez Haase AAS we produced a series of limited edition long sleeves showcasing excerpts of the original architectural drawings by BCO Architekten.
To communicate some of our core values we produced a silk scarf under the theme of a “handshake” and “harmony”. (100% silk, made in Italy)
handshake, hand·shake | \ ˈhan(d)-ˌshāk, “A common practice that signifies an agreement which is based on mutual respect and understanding in both business and social context.”
Partnering up with Berlin’s König Galerie and Cologne’s ruttkowski 68 we were able to show the works of Frédéric Platéus and Johannes Wohnseifer for a very first exhibition in our new space in Kreuzberg!
We love products and sometimes you have to create something yourself. Just for the sake of creating it. The way you envision and the way you want it. Inspired by an endless summer and the nature and traditional graphics of Indonesia, we produced a small capsule collection of “Hawaii” shirts. All handmade in Indonesia.
The Sucuk & Bratwurst boys have teamed up with us to produce a clothing range that blends The North Face jackets and toothbrushes. Forget cigarette suits!
