HoF Emscherhalle in May

My actual visit at HoF Emscherhalle in Duisburg almost has fallen victim to a thunderstorm of epochal proportions. I had to wait out the storm under the umbrella of the hall in good company of a number of scaters, providing a music background. MC BOGY took care for the mixture and some superheroes and screen […]

Project HOMELAND – Stories on Concrete

Finger exercises at Essenberger Straße are completed and now, that the scaffolding was dismantled at the building, the walls tell stories of Homeland and Flora. Stories on concrete about icons of the Ruhr area, like MSV, the local soccer club, or a typical newsstand. Landscapes dominated by concrete and a number of weird animals now […]

Project HOMELAND – Community Foundation Duisburg – work in progress

My visit at the old warehouse at Essenberger Straße, where project „Heimat“ of Community Foundation Duisburg is situated, is about 4 weeks ago. Meanwhile the building was scaffolded and volunteers have prepared the facade to get the participating artists started. I wasn’t able to identify them all; so far I have discovered pieces of MR.PILZ […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße in May

My last visit in Duisburg Meiderich on Monday brought a surprise. Unexpectedly I have met a bunch of rascals in the tunnel, where extensive renovations were carried out. Anna Littsa aka FOXY and friends were busy and so you have to go for a walk and look for the results for yourself. Besides my pictures […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße in March

I have to apologize, for my last visit in Duisburg was in January. As a pedestrian in times of Corona, the radius of my activities mainly is determined by the availability of public restrooms. My alternatives normally are restaurants and cafes but you know … (#FUCKCKCORONA). Its not really funny to run back from Meiderich […]

HOMELAND – HEIMAT – Community Foundation Duisburg

I would like to draw your attention to a project of Community Foundation Duisburg, who plan to colour 60 pillars of motorway A59 next to Duisburg’s Inner Harbour in the near future. In a survey they have collected thoughts and feelings due to the concept of homeland. Artists will be allowed to transport those concepts […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße – CMYK DOTS

I haven’t had the opportunity to see an installation of Berlin based street artist OKSE 126 outside Berlin so far. That makes this finding very special to me. In Berlin however, those installations can be found more often, but as a tourist, beeing in town only temporary, it’s a question of luck. Since the year […]

HoF Alte Kaserne in January

Its time to serve the dessert of my 3 course menu and come to an end with the test run of the brandnew car of my sister. The last stop of our day trip was HoF Alte Kaserne. It was still Sunday and this hall was very busy too – what else? So the same […]

HoF Unterführungsstraße in January

The test run with the brandnew car of my sister didn’t stop at HoF Emscherhalle. Emscherhalle was the starter of a 3 course menu. The main course was HoF Unterführungsstraße. OK – it was a Sunday and I know that weekends are always busy at all legal walls. Duisburg naturally is no exception. Nevertheless I […]

HoF Emscherhalle in January

One man’s meat – Another man’s poison For this post I was in need of a second headline. My sister’s car waved good bye in the last days of December. She was not amused – that was a big investment right at the beginning of the year, but unfortunately unavoidable. She was lucky to find […]
