United Buddy Bears THE MINIS
After the circle of United Buddy Bears promoted tolerance and international understanding next to the Brandenburg Gate in 2002 and 2003, a smaller version of the 2m tall ambassadors of peace was introduced in 2003.
Since 2003, many international artists have also designed miniature Buddy Bears to represent their native country. So far, we have presented the exhibition “United Buddy Bears – THE MINIS“ in various parts of Germany. In the future, we are planning to take THE MINIS to other parts of Europe.
By now, 100 miniature bears have been created under the same motto as their taller brothers: “We have to get to know each other better… it makes us understand one another better, trust each other more and live together more peacefully.” They inspire people from different nations to live with each other and side by side in peace and harmony.
Since their first exhibition in Berlin in 2004, THE MINIS have been welcomed by thousands of admirers visiting more than 20 exhibitions.
