The last weekend was a blast! For decades, Traumzeitfestival at Landscape Park Duisburg North,  is firmly scheduled in my annual calendar of events. So for a change, my last weekend was dedicated to all of those artists who have played there. But of course, there is still HoF Unterführungsstraße, which  is located just a stone’s […]

In these days my Berlin friend is close to dispair. The hot temperatures make it difficult to break free from the shady garden, but in Berlin things are on the move; no good times to stay in the shadows!

Please don’t let me be misunderstood, I love that hall of fame at Essen’s north side, but I‘ m always a little bit scared visiting. Those old walls are due to be demolished and nobody knows exactly when they have to fall. But things reputed to be dead live longer and there is life in […]

Styro seems to have spent hybernation with crafting. Now, after reawakening from the winter sleep, he seems to be on his way, to set his creatures free, wherever he stands or goes. And my Berlin friend finds them, even if not looking for something special. Nobody stays home in this bright weather.

I have no idea, how my Berlin friend is able to find those installations, to make me happy. This little guy, made by STYRO, seems to be in critical condition. Will he risk jumping off with his provisionally paraglider? And will his crash helmet prevent him from injuries? I spontanously named him Otto, because he […]

Free spaces for creativity are rare and in times of gentrification and housing shortage, one expects free areas to be reduced, but to get a new. So the opening of a new hall of fame in our region is always a huge thing and a reason to celebrate a party.
