The new year had a somewhat bumpy start. The weather conditions in the first few days were not very motivating to go for longer walks and so there are 3 weeks between my last visit at HoF Auf der Donau. Time enough to miss a lot. A lot of pieces were already older and accordingly […]

Murals in Essen (10th)

When I started the series „Murals in Essen“ to answer a good friend and refute his prejudice, that Essen is a real desert of art, especially street art, I would not have expected to write 10 episodes. With the 10th edition the number of murals has increased to one hundred. Hüweg; CVA – SHIK x […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change
