Parkett Dietrich and Ferreira | Verfürth Architects show – „Landpartie meets Art of Parkett“

I almost missed it, because due to the actual heat wave in Germany, my motivation to take a ride of an hour with an urban train to Wuppertal, tended to zero. But yesterday  the cooling, promised by the weather forecast, arrived Northrhine Westfalia and I dared to leave home. Parquet Dietrich in Wuppertal makes a […]

Culture Pop Studio shows DARED’s „Digital Fruits“

I don’t make a secret of it, I love installations; installations of any kind. Styro cuts, vinyl art, fret saw works, cork – or pipe cleaner puppets, tiles, sculptures and and and. Artists often try out completely new things, to find their personal style and handwriting. To find installations in public space is thrilling. They […]

ROCCO UND SEINE BRÜDER solo show FRI / VOL.2

If it were able to tell stories, the historic waiting room at Herne station might have to tell a lot of tales. Last night ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERS have occupied the old waiting hall with a number of their installations and one more epic and memorable story was added to its annals. The installations created […]

5 days of Berlin – 2nd day

From my point of view, Schöneberg is a must go whenever I am in Berlin. Schöneberg is diverse and colourful and offers a wide range of possibilities. This neighbourhood has produced well known actors and artists like Marlene Dietrich, The Comedian Harmonists and Helmut Newton and JFK’s world-famous „Ich bin ein Berliner“ was spoken at […]

Alter Wartesaal im Bahnhof Herne shows FRI / VOL.2 – solo show „ROCCO UND SEINE BRÜDER“

Do you know ROCCO? And what about his brothers? No? Never mind, you’re in best company. Nobody knows them personally, except a small number of carefully selected people. Born in the 1980ies, Rocco and his brothers are a fixed value in the graffiti scene of Berlin. In January 2016, the collective „ROCCO AND HIS BROTHERES“ […]

Hotel Lindner City Plaza hosts „Aérosol de cologne“

First of all: This is not a sponsored article, even if this might be hard to believe. But my enthusiasm is genuine and incidentally cannot be purchased. Cologne is proud of its more than 80 neighbourhoods, which are called „Veedel“ in colonian dialect. They all are unique and have their own identity and character. A […]

Speicher Pop Up Gallery 2.0

In April heaven is close to hell. Especially last Saturday, street art community of Northrhine Westfalia seemed to have flocked together and have conspired to a complot to drive me to distraction. Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund, Essen and who knows where else – the last weekend was a blast of events around the topic street art. […]

  The Central Committee of street art in Essen and Northrhine Westfalia came together on Saturday for consultations, party and a multi-day exhibition at Alibi Essen, Holzstraße 12. All the delegates arriving via Rheinischer Platz were received by BONA BERLIN, LUNA, MSBUBBLES and MR.PILZ at the old tunnel of former Rheinische Bahn at Altenessener Straße. […]

Thanks for making my day!

Street artists are a secretive gang – necessarily – they always are in a footrace with the authorities and so it’s not easy to get information about the location of pieces. A problem for me, as there are areas in my city I haven’t been ever, I don’t know or haven’t heared of. From time […]
