These days BRAUSE, a flagship of Düsseldorf’s subculture, has turned 18 years of age and faded away simultaneously. With a final smile and a last party, it was celebrated once more, to say good bye in dignity and with a smile on the faces.
In the course of their latest exhibition Urban Creatures at Take A Butcher’s Gallery, a number of artists seem to have lost their way in Düsseldorf’s urban djungle. Somehow they have stranded at Apollo-Platz and met a paste up of ARDIF. Since then ARDIF’s djungle cat has got company by a number of the strange […]
Take a Butcher’s Gallery starts „URBAN CREATURES“ – European group show with 4 artists from England, France, Switzerland and Austria

Hotel Friends at Worringer […]

Düsseldorf has two famous streets known far beyond the city limits. Königsallee, or better known as KÖ – downtown shopping mile and strolling promenade for the rich and pretty folks – and Kiefernstraße, the counterpart of everything the KÖ stands for.
