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 […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Dealing with street art, you cannot avoid to remark and observe the change. Sometimes the change is more like an enemy, when you lose beloved pieces or something old familiar. But mostly it’s a win situation. See for yourself. Revaler Straße / Matkowskystraße (05/2019) Michel Velt (Portrait of Sara Erenthal) x Sara Erenthal (10/2019)

Berlin in October – 5th day

3 more murals of Berlin Mural Fest 2019, located in Kreuzberg, were still pending. So that day Kreuzberg was on my agenda. Kreuzberg is easy, but – for matters of a street art hunter – hardly overseeable, in the face of all those street art spots and the masses of shutters, graffiti, installations, tiles, paste-ups […]

Berlin in October – 4th day

I do not tend to complain – let alone about the weather. Thats the behaviour of a common tourist. A covered sky usually is good for taking pictures – but a covered and a rainy sky? What about the struggle with the drops on your lens? For that day I had planned to look for […]

Berlin in October – 3rd day

The weather forecast for the 3rd of October, the German Unity Day, was subterrean. Wind and heavy rain, but in the morning it was drizzling only and so I took courage and set out for one more Hall of Fame, situated in Schöneberg, not far away from Bülowstraße and Urban Nation – Museum for Urban […]

Berlin in October – 2nd day

This time Berlin didn’t pamper me. The weather, which was awful the day before, wasn’t even dryer and – replacement busses – that too! My tram was stopped halfway to Revaler Straße and I had to take the oldest replacement bus I had ever seen. A bit dizzy I reached RAW at Revaler Straße 99, […]

Berlin in October – 1st day

Berlin is always worth a visit, but October isn’t the time of the year I prefer to visit the city. You may guess it, it’s because of all those additional visitors, who are focussed on the historical aspects of the reunion of Germany and the 3rd of October. And this year they all were very […]

Berlin Mural Festival goes to the 2nd round

It’s out now: Berlin Mural Fest goes to the 2nd round. And it seems that the Dixons, who are the organizers, have learnt from the faults of last year. Today they have announced the locations of some of the walls and the identity of the artists, painting them. For those who are in Berlin a […]

Paste Up Festival Germany 2nd Edition

Do you remember the 1st Paste-Up Festival Germany, which took place at Deutsche Oper Berlin last year? I would like to draw your attention to its second edition, which will take place at Revaler Straße 99, at the property of RAW, on the 7th of September. Everyone who likes can be a part of it. […]

Notes from a Berlin friend has got a new home

I would like to draw your attention to the brandnew spin off of my blog streetartwalks. Due to a lack of free space I had to come up with something new. And so I established streetartwalks reloaded. There you’ll find my new Berlin branch. It will be filled more or less frequently with the pictures […]
