1st Berlin Mural Fest

Information flow was sparse so far; I am very dissatisfied, as my lead time for organization of a longer Berlin trip went down and down. No information available due to the location of walls, nor times when work starts – nothing! I had to give up my intentions to see work in progress and have […]

Moments – Faces of a Road Trip

Let me draw your attention to a documentary film which has got a lot of attention in Cannes and an Oscar nomination as best documentary film 2017.

At the moment the relationship between graffiti and Villa RÜ seems to be tense. It seems that the Welcome-May-Party has turned into a […]

4 Days of Frankfurt – 4th day

This was my day of departure. As usually, I took a train in the late afternoon, to reach home in the evening.

The production halls, built 1906/07, had until the 1960ies been owned by Naxos-Union, a producer of abrasives. The main hall today is a listed building and is […]
