Do you want to know what it’s all about in Frankfurt? Take a look at the title photo, which says everything – almost everything. Frankfurt takes pride on being both, the largest city in the federal state of Hessen and also the largest financial centre in Europe. But there is a parallel world beyond the […]
Frankfurt was completely new for me and if there would not have been that Basquiat exhibition at the Schirn, then it would have remained a blank spot on my map of Germany. My desire of an encounter with a city full of brokers and bankers is limited – extremely limited. And my worst fears were […]
Turbo Urban was the trigger for me to walk around Worringer Platz and pass the time until the exhibition was opened in the late afternoon. What I found, was a new street name which I have not as yet noticed. First I noticed SWEMMCHEN with his/her stickers, looking like tiny little sponges, facial expressions varying. […]
A dressed-up piggy was mascot of Turbo Urban 2015; now, in 2018, I have sighted a masked goose. What the meaning behind is? I have absolutely no idea! My advice is: come and see for yourself!
Turbo Urban was opened last Saturday and I must confess, it was a harsh decision not to hurry for Düsseldorf – but sorry, Dortmund has won and Düsseldorf has pulled the short straw.

Has everyone gone […]
… and Dortmund has got a brandnew immigrant – how could that happen? REBELZER, Hamburg based street artist, has set sail for a weekend getaway, to visit some friends in Dortmund. He did not pay attention when partying and in a moment of inattention, one of his Freaks escaped. It doesn’t look like that lout […]

I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming solo show „NARCOLEPTIC“ of MARTHA MARGARETE. She is an Essen based female artist showing a majority of her current works. The mostly black&white portraits are full of melancholy and contemplation; a descent into the depths of sleep and dreamworld. The pictures shown here were made 2015 at […]
