Luck Five – ANXT

There are not many German terms, to find the way into the international linguistic usage. The term „German Anxt“ was able to prevail. It refers to the phenomenon of gratuitous fear or anxiety and is felt as typically German especially by observers from the Anglo-Saxon area. What has this got to do with the writer […]

Giant creepy-crawly sighted at Brause

This former cashpoint with old fashioned glass front of a small vintage petrol station has mutated in August 2001 to a social club with a number of concerts, readings, exhibitions and much more. Probably for the latest exhibition „Sticky Art“ which has shown everything around stickers, STUESSYDAN has knighted the facade with a giant cockroach. 

Oldies but Goldies

Coming from Bilk S, on my way to Floragarten, I always have to pass Haus Niederrhein, which seems to be a traditional restaurant and pub in Düsseldorf Bilk. I have always been very upset about the containers, housing the site offices of the urban rail construction site. These containers completely reduced the visibility of a […]

German Railway – Charm Offensive aquiring young trainees?

Travelling by rail is exciting and colourful. For me it is never boring and I don’t need a book nor earphones. The track itself is my newspaper. Who is the most important writer or crew of an area? Who is friend or foe of whom? Try to read the track and hope you have got […]

ARDIF is a young French artist, who deals with mechanics behind living matters. In his drawings he transforms animals to mechanical beings. His creatures are splitted in two parts […]

METRAEDA – PLANT MORE TREES SAYS GROOT

My latest walk in Düsseldorf after the long period with barbaric Sibirian cold, led me to Bilk. It was a walk of many hours, lunch break included, and my constant companionship were the pieces of METRAEDA. Some brandnew ones but oldies too. More picture of this walk -> click

Oldies but Goldies

As I’m not an expert for Düsseldorf, I have no idea concerning Bilk and the area around the hip Bilk Arcaden. All I know is, that after the dismantling of a number of containers, presumably the building office of the Undergrounf building site, there is a free view now to the oldest graffiti in Düsseldorf […]

Pretty Portal shows Claudio Ethos solo show „Deadmocracy“

In September he has been in Düsseldorf to work for his very first solo show in Germany „Deadmocracy“ shown by gallery Pretty Portal until 20 October. Besides that he has painted a wall for CityLeaks […]
