HoF FZW Dortmund in June

Freizeitzentrum West (FZW) has a long history since 1968. Opened at the old location on Neuer Graben in Dortmund’s west side as a district centre, over time, it developed more and more into an event and cultural centre. Today, housed in a larger building at Ritterstraße, right next to the „Dortmunder U“, the FZW is […]

1st Mural of „Brückengeschichten“ was finished in Dortmund Hörde

Pottporus takes over the project management of the second phase of Bridge Stories, a project developed by Hörde International e.V. and the Dortmund artist Silvia Liebig. As part of the first project phase in 2021, Silvia Liebig created the sound collage „Hörde, here Hörde“ from interviews with more than 100 people from Hörde, which now […]

HoF Dortmund Hafen in April

My first visit of the new HoF in Dortmund next to Speicherstraße 100 was a blast. The new hall was unveiled a few days ago and it seemed to me that the opening had mobilised the creme de la creme of the graffiti scene in North Rhine-Westphalia. Unfortunately, it turned out that my camera had […]

New Hall of Fame in Dortmund

The site where the former „Knauf Interfer Hall“ once stood is now home to North Rhine-Westphalia’s longest Hall of Fame. Graffiti artists can now express their creative ideas on the 600-metre-long wall that surrounds the area to the west. This Hall of Fame is one of the longest of its kind in NRW; a total […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

My last visit at Adler59 was a very long time ago (#FUCKCORONA) and it was overdue to have a look. Of course, I have found a lot of new stuff, but the most important first: Adler59 shares it’s backyard with Falkenstraße 6. Both doorways are designed (only of the best). And while the doorway at […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Due to Corona I hadn’t been at Dortmund’s harbour since 01/2019. Thats a long time and who wonders, the change has beaten hard especially at Speicherstraße. The wrecking ball has destroyed nearly all the old familiar buildings and you no longer know your way around. My last visit at Speicherstraße 54 brought a new piece […]

ManKenntSich Kollektiv – New Mural at Speicherstraße

Dortmund’s harbour is a graffiti and street art hot spot, not just because MTW has it’s headquarter there and sets accents. In the course of the time especially the area around the old warehouse, Speicherstraße 100, is a meeting place for the murals of artists of all kinds. I haven’t been there for a long […]

Krupplyn meets MTW – Results: Backboard Jam

When Krupplyn and MTW do a picknick, they can’t do it without music and graffiti. And normally everyone runs to avoid missing it. But the timing! On the weekend of Hafendampf?! To be true, that causes frustration for graffiti fans. As far as I’m concerned, the decision was not difficult. Hafendampf won and Backboard Jam […]

Amarena Cup Mark Gmehling Style

A year already has passed since Mark Gmehling has designed the wall of a popular Ice cream parlour in Dortmund at Rheinische Straße / Ritterstraße. A greedy tongue hanging out and a cherry topped ball of pistacio ice-cream, that was my first thought, looking at this artwork, which was new for me. Why can I […]

Dortmunder Gruppe shows „Banner Project“ at Phoenix West

These are hard times, not only for artists, who are unable to present their work in exhibitions actually (#FUCKCORONA). So I would like to draw your attention to a project of 22 artists of Dortmunder Gruppe, who exhibit their current works in a prominent place next to the disused blast furnace at Phoenix West. The […]
