What do you think, hearing the nickname „handsome Hermann“? I, for one, imagined everything possible, but I would never have thought of an art gallery. But it seems to have escaped my attention that there is an art gallery in Eltingviertel, at the very edge of Kreativ Quartier Nord, that bears that name. And that’s […]

Varieties – Frida Kahlo

The newest work of Anna Littsa aka FOXY, depicting Frida Kahlo, was the trigger for this post. Frida Kahlo – who doesn’t know her, the charismatic Mexican artist with the characteristic eyebrows and the light lady’s beard?

Hangover Gallery shows PS – I LOVE YOU

It was a courageous step, to start a new gallery at the height of the pandemic and in economically difficult times, but culture is important, especially in difficult times, and it must go on.

Bilk S has got a facelifting

Until recently, Bilk S was a stop for local trains only and the surroundings for the common passer-by not really attractive. Entrance, walls and surrounding columns were playground for the street art scene and the pasted and sprayed walls gave the passer-by cause for many a rant. No question, for the street art enthusiast a […]
