Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Now the long wall opposite the entrance to the station remains to be discussed only. For some time it has been firmly in the hands of the graffiti writers, not always to the advantage of a universally pleasing appearance. The times when paste-ups and stickers shared the space here, are unfortunately over. At least I […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

We are slowly approaching the end of my mini-series dealing with the changes at Bilker Bahhof. The cable distributors are on the central reservation, where the trams also run. I don’t know who or what they supply with electricity, but in the past they have often been used as a background for markers, stickers and […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

The Friedrichstraße railway subway at Bilker Bahnhof has long been a hot spot for street art of all kinds, but this area has recently undergone a radical transformation. At the entrance and exit of the tunnel there is a wall element that is remotely reminiscent of an alkhoven or a niche. This niche has always […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Let’s go on with the changes at Bilk S. Today the columns are the topic on my agenda. There is no shortage of pillars at Bilk station. I have never counted them, but I have often photographed parts of them. They have always been used for billposting, although not always for advertising. Let’s have a […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Lets have a look at the changes at the busy pedestrian walkway between Bilk S and Weberstraße, leading to the next supermarket. The surrounding walls and the city drainage pumping station were rather annoying and not always eye-catching for passers-by.

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

When I started a new hobby in 2013, Düsseldorf Bilk and especially the immediate area around Bilk station very quickly appeared on my radar. Always on the lookout for information about my new hobby, I decided to check out an exhibition that dealt with stencils only. When I got off the train at Bilk S […]

Next Saturday, 27.8.2022, a harbour walk will take place in Dortmund’s harbour for the 9th time. From 1 pm, Krupplyn’s Backboard Jam will take place in the heart of the harbour at Drehbrückenstraße. That means hip-hop from local artists, live & open-air, beats & rhymes to the ears. For this event, More Than Words has […]

Hit but not fallen

This time I was a bit afraid to visit Düsseldorf Bilk. It was unclear what I would find there after the brand new mural „FOR THE BRAVE AND DISPLACED“ by Düsseldorf based artist L.E.T. at Bilk S had been almost destroyed with a paint bomb. A targeted attack; who goes for a walk and has […]

Bismarcktunnel has got a new face

The underpass of A 42 motorway at „Gelsenkirchen Zoo“ station on the B227 (Bismarckstraße) is the entrance gate to the city of Gelsenkirchen for many visitors. For many users it was an inhospitable place to be. In 2020 a new lighting concept for the subway was created to bring light into darkness. The lighting shines […]
