It costs 90 cents to send a postcard from Germany to Syria, and Zero Ninety is a chance for Berliners a chance to buy postcards from artists and refugees at silent auction


To recognise the impact that refugees have had on Germany and German society since 2014, the European Youth Press (EYP) have organised a postcard exhibition and auction.

The postcards on show, and for eventual sale, have been produced by refugees, local school children, and well-known artists such as Mirijam Verena Jeremic, Aaron Jordan, Archana Sreenivasan, Wolf Nkole Helzle.

Zero Ninety Postcard Exhibition and Silent AuctionAccording to Raluca Besliu of the EYP, the “postcards illustrate the diverse range of reactions that the waves of migration have provoked in people over the past two years”.

The postcards will then be sold in a silent auction. The postcards will be displayed anonymously, so patrons are unaware if they’re buying artwork created by a refugee child or a famous artists.

The name of the exhibition and auction, “Zero Ninety”, is a reflection of the price of sending a single postcard from Germany to Syria: 90 cents, or €0,90.

The exhibition will take place on December 8. More information can be found on the EYP website or on Facebook.
