One Thing is for sure – The Change

Invisible during opening hours, shutters are something like buisiness cards for shops, restaurants or kiosks after buisiness hours. They are an open invitation for everyone with a marker or a spray can, when not designed. In the last years, nearly every day I had to pass an example, and for me it was only a […]

Galerie Droste shows – MOSES & TAPS solo show „INTERRAIL™“

Two years ago, in September 2017, Galerie Droste presented MOSES & TAPS and their solo show „Schöpferische Zerstörung„. Within the upcoming second solo exhibition of the artist collective in Wuppertal, they show current works, which dissolve into almost complete abstraction. I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming solo show „INTERRAIL™“ at Galerie […]

WAT UP Festival – Finish

Bochum was very active for street art this year. In addition to Wright Festival, which has a tradition of 3 years now, they have put a new festival on track for Bochum Wattenscheid. Both festivals produced 5 new murals each. In Wattenscheid, now the scaffoldings of the last 3 murals have been dismantled. MISTER OREO […]

Creative Quarter North – New findings

I’m always excited, finding paste-ups in Essen; paste-ups are rare here and they often have a very short life time. Creative Quarter Essen is changing. You can find abandoned shops everywhere and when the windows of those shops are broken, the glass fronts very often are replaced by chipboards. Then artists and some glue come […]

WAT UP Festival – Beware of the predators at Hochstraße

Now that the scaffoldings are dismantled from the buildings next to Alte Post at Hochstraße 35 and 39 – 41, pedestrians are doing well to cross to the other side of the street. Not only to get a better view, but to get in distance to the teeth of a number of sharks populating those […]

Kulturbunker Köln shows „Stadtgold“ – Inventory of current Cologne street art & urban art

I don’t like talking about it, but there is no doubt, X-mas is around the corner. Looking for presents? Climate-friendly? Means, without delivery services, without traffic collapse? See for yourself and touch? Then take your heels and run to Cologne Mülheim and Kulturbunker. All exhibits at „Stadtgold“ can be purchased. As a pleasant accompaniment you’ll […]

INFUSION #10 – BATTLE OF CITIES

Well, it’s a good thing that I was not part of the jury, to choose the winner of that battle. My sympathies were not stable and switched back and forth all the time and my final decision would have been a bit different, as my sympathies came back all the time to INFAMOUS H TOWN, […]

Take a Butcher’s Gallery shows “CONCRETE, RUST & UNTOLD STORIES”

The first show with exclusively German artists at Take a Butchers Gallery, which was opened last Saturday, is a group show with works of three outstanding artists, Christian Rothenhagen aka deerBLN based in Berlin, René Meyer aka RYMR, Leipzig and Stefan Winterle, based in Weil am Rhein. I love those urban landscapes created by Christian […]

Berlin in October – 6th day

Who thinks that prefabricated buildings are an invention of the former GDR, is wrong. It truly was an American architekt, who was responsible to build 1910 the first prefabricated building settlement „Forest Hills Gardens“ in Queens, New York. Those settlements are to be found in the former eastern part of Berlin as well as in […]
