Gustav Heinemann Brücke in the course of the years

Werden Bridge is the last in a long row of bridge constructions, connecting Werden and Essen since 1065, when a bridge in Werden was first mentioned in a document. Today’s structure was opened 1968 and since 1982 it bears the name of the 3rd German Federal President, Gustav Heinemann. Looking at old photos, this was […]

HoF Zollstraße – Requiem, Swansong, Farewell

I was invited to take a street art trip with friends in Dortmund yesterday, but the night brought a lot of snow and so we decided to avoid longer journeys and stayed in Essen. The idea was to have a look at HoF Zollstraße and take a cup of tea later. On site I got […]

HoF Auf der Donau in January

HoF Auf der Donau in January

It is not uncommon to find pieces of collaboration of Anna Littsa aka FOXY and CESA7 in Duisburg. To find one at Hall of Fame Auf der Donau in Essen, that is, as far as I know, a premiere. After KEDO’s portrait of Alex Hahn in September 2019, they have painted the portrait of Lassaad […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße – CMYK DOTS

I haven’t had the opportunity to see an installation of Berlin based street artist OKSE 126 outside Berlin so far. That makes this finding very special to me. In Berlin however, those installations can be found more often, but as a tourist, beeing in town only temporary, it’s a question of luck. Since the year […]

Hold on – Everything will be fine in the end …

Seen yesterday at Borbeck station Everything will be fine in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end. Am Ende wird alles gut. Wenn es nicht gut ist, ist es nicht das Ende.
