Goch history meets Streetart

From the beginning of this year, Covid 19 and the pandemic disease has mixed up my plans for the upcomiing year. My Berlin trip in March was cacelled and I was extremely sad, when I found out that Hafendampf had fallen victim to Corona (#FUCKCORONA). Anyway, even in times of Corona, or better – especially […]

BILMO – BANG BLOOM BANG

BILMO DE BACHATA is a street artist, who appeared on my radar 2017. He is based somewhere in nowhere between Düsseldorf and Cologne. His street name has found him in a tapas bar, where he was taken away by music a la „me gusta la bachta“. Since then his friends call him like that. He […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Owing to many sponsors and donations, since November 2016 it sparkles in its full beauty again, Albert Hien’s Light sculpture „ZOO“. It tops and decorates the building at Rüttenscheid’s central Market place, which houses a combination of newsstand and public restroom facility.

Seen today in passing

Wind and heavy rain, but in the morning it was drizzling only and so I took courage and set out for one more Hall of Fame, situated in Schöneberg, not far away from Bülowstraße and Urban Nation – Museum for Urban […]

Düsseldorf Werhahn S – They all have been there

Whenever I pass Düsseldorf Werhrhn S by train, or cross the bridge at Grafenberger Allee above the station, I think about how to get there, to this forbidden spot below, which is a space off area and unreachable, except for the graffiti writers, who have taken the area – forbidden or not – for their […]

Parkett Dietrich and Ferreira | Verfürth Architects show – „Landpartie meets Art of Parkett“

I almost missed it, because due to the actual heat wave in Germany, my motivation to take a ride of an hour with an urban train to Wuppertal, tended to zero. But yesterday  the cooling, promised by the weather forecast, arrived Northrhine Westfalia and I dared to leave home. Parquet Dietrich in Wuppertal makes a […]
