4 Days of Frankfurt – 4th day

This was my day of departure. As usually, I took a train in the late afternoon, to reach home in the evening. Typically I plan a light touristic „lady’s program“ for the morning, which means a mixture of window shopping, sight seeing and coffee party, if there would not have been the exhibition „Power to […]

4 Days of Frankfurt – 3rd day

Schedule for my 3rd day in Frankfurt envisaged a visit at Naxos Halle. This spot in Frankfurt’s east end, is interesting for a lot of resaons at least. The production halls, built 1906/07, had until the 1960ies been owned by Naxos-Union, a producer of abrasives. The main hall today is a listed building and is […]

4 Days of Frankfurt – 2nd day

Do you want to know what it’s all about in Frankfurt? Take a look at the title photo, which says everything – almost everything. Frankfurt takes pride on being both, the largest city in the federal state of Hessen and also the largest financial centre in Europe. But there is a parallel world beyond the […]

4 Days of Frankfurt – 1st day

Frankfurt was completely new for me and if there would not have been that Basquiat exhibition at the Schirn, then it would have remained a blank spot on my map of Germany. My desire of an encounter with a city full of brokers and bankers is limited – extremely limited. And my worst fears were […]

PIZZA BOXES, VEGETABLE TRAYS, STICKERS AND PASTE-UPS

Turbo Urban was the trigger for me to walk around Worringer Platz and pass the time until the exhibition was opened in the late afternoon. What I found, was a new street name which I have not as yet noticed. First I noticed SWEMMCHEN with his/her stickers, looking like tiny little sponges, facial expressions varying. […]

Turbo Urban – Fasten Seat Belts!

A dressed-up piggy was mascot of Transurban 2015; now, in 2018, I have sighted a masked goose. What the meaning behind is? I have absolutely no idea! My advice is: come and see for yourself!

Pixel-Art – sophisticated, complex and hard to resist

Turbo Urban was opened last Saturday and I must confess, it was a harsh decision not to hurry for Düsseldorf – but sorry, Dortmund has won and Düsseldorf has pulled the short straw.

Speicher Pop Up Gallery

The last weekend I nearly have turned over and didn’t move fast enough at all. After having popped in at 1Null7 to have a look at MARTHA MARGARETE and her solo show Narcoleptic, I headed for Dortmund, were in the late afternoon the Pop Up Gallery in an old store at Speicherstraße was opened. One […]

1NULL7 shows MARTHA MARGARETHE solo show „NARCOLEPTIC“

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. Has everyone gone […]

Hamburg has lost one of his inhabitants

… and Dortmund has got a brandnew immigrant – how could that happen? REBELZER, Hamburg based street artist, has set sail for a weekend getaway, to visit some friends in Dortmund. He did not pay attention when partying and in a moment of  inattention, one of his Freaks escaped. It doesn’t look like that lout […]
