I’m a person, who isn’t quickly thrown off balance – normally. But the last weekend – until the mad! Open studios in Boui Boui Bilk, BARTOTAINMENT with his Golem and Turbo Urban opening in Düsseldorf, Speicher Pop Up Show in Dortmund and MARTHA MARGARETE in Gelsenkirchen, to name but a few examples.
