I’m always excited, finding paste-ups in Essen; paste-ups are rare here and they often have a very short life time. Creative Quarter Essen is changing. You can find abandoned shops everywhere and when the windows of those shops are broken, the glass fronts very often are replaced by chipboards. Then artists and some glue come […]
The weather forecast for the 3rd of October, the German Unity Day, was subterrean. 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 […]

Somehow they have stranded at Apollo-Platz and met a paste up of ARDIF. Since then ARDIF’s djungle cat has got company by a number of the strange […]
