HoF Auf der Donau in March

March starts with good news. It seems that the authorities have had some new ideas implementing new measures relating Corona (#FUCKCORONA) and the Lock Down. For me it would be sufficient to find an open lavatory when needed! Then my operating radius will be expanded to Dortmund, Düsseldorf or Cologne immediately. But today – Donau […]

HoF Auf der Donau in January

Nothing is as normal in these crazy time of pandemic. I don’t think anyone has any idea about how long it will go on like this (#FUCKCORONA). But one thing is reliable, even in times of Corona, Hall of Fame Auf der Donau will be renovated regularly FUME x EKSIT AMI and others SIR x […]

HoF Auf der Donau in January

Nothing has changed in 2021; Donau is as fast as always. Starting for this walk on Monday, I had expected to find the huge „Ninja Turtle concept wall“ designed by SIR, BUSE, PILZ and BLUTIG, but unfortunately I was too late again. I’m not quite sure what is worse: beeing too late and find the […]

HoF Auf der Donau in January

It is not uncommon to find pieces of collaboration of Anna Littsa aka FOXY and CESA7 in Duisburg. To find one at Hall of Fame Auf der Donau in Essen, that is, as far as I know, a premiere. After KEDO’s portrait of Alex Hahn in September 2019, they have painted the portrait of Lassaad […]

HoF Auf der Donau in January

The first walk of every new year leads me to Hall of Fame Auf der Donau. Call it my personal New Year’s day tradition or a personal ritual to welcome the new year. Its always a quiet walk in the late morning after a longer sleep to sober up. You meet a few people only, […]

One thing is for sure – The Change

The clock is ticking, time is running out for the year 2020, which wasn’t one of my favorite years so far – #FUCKCORONA! Same procedure as every year – it’s time to look back at the changes at one of the same wall at HoF Auf der Donau in the course of the last 12 […]

HoF Auf der Donau in December

The time between the years seems to be a very quiet time this year. Fireworks cancelled (#FUCKCORONA), no premature firecrackers to be heard. Traffic is low and the obligatory wave of people, exchanging their unwanted Christmas gifts, failed to appear. Only at HoF Auf der Donau business as usual. Alongside a number of new pieces […]

Santa’s Sleigh

In Germany the second Christmas holiday traditionally is the day to visit and present family and friends. So this morning I made my way to Dorsten, where my family lives. Everything was planned accurately; even the transport carriage was true to style. Thank you 134 and merry X-mas to all of you too! Essen main […]

One thing is for sure – The Change

The Change – an always recurring topic in this blog. Over the years I have noticed a lot of changes in my surrounding. Sometimes it feels like a big loss when old familiar pieces of art in public space disappear, but mostly you get something new as a compensation. Better or not – the times, […]

One thing is for sure – The Change

Shame – Essen tidies up the inner city. A chameleon and an old piece of ADD ENTRY is lost. In times of Corona (#FUCKCORONA), people are bored and have too much time. Their normal strategies of distraction don’t work during the Lockdown. Fitness studios, cafes, pubs and every other beloved entertainments – nada! So they […]
