The first show with exclusively German artists at Take a Butchers Gallery, which was opened last Saturday, is a group show with works of three outstanding artists, Christian Rothenhagen aka deerBLN based in Berlin, René Meyer aka RYMR, Leipzig and Stefan Winterle, based in Weil am Rhein. I love those urban landscapes created by Christian […]

Berlin in October – 2nd day

This time Berlin didn’t pamper me. The weather, which was awful the day before, wasn’t even dryer and – replacement busses – that too! My tram was stopped halfway to Revaler Straße and I had to take the oldest replacement bus I had ever seen. A bit dizzy I reached RAW at Revaler Straße 99, […]

With an impressive number of national and international artists, the organizers of 40° Urban Art Festival set a sign that couldn’t be clearer.

40° Urbanart Festival 2019

About 4 km north of Düsseldorf main station, the former marshalling yard and freight depot, Düsseldorf Derendorf, was situated. From 1941 – 1944, from here jews from the government district Düsseldorf have been deported to the extermination camps. In April 2012, a memorial was established south of Jülich bridge, to commemorate the more than 6.000 […]

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 […]

Notes from a Berlin friend has got a new home

I would like to draw your attention to the brandnew spin off of my blog streetartwalks. Due to a lack of free space I had to come up with something new. And so I established streetartwalks reloaded. There you’ll find my new Berlin branch. It will be filled more or less frequently with the pictures […]

Take a Butcher’s Gallery shows „CAPITAL – BANKNOTES ONLY“

Money makes the world go around and that’s what this spectacular exhibition shows in all artworks exibited. Defacing the banknotes with a variety of techniques from freehand, stencil, acrylic, spraypaint, marker pen to collage, leads to a new meaning and nominal worth becomes a side-note.

BRAUSE – THE SMILE REMAINS

These days BRAUSE, a flagship of Düsseldorf’s subculture, has turned 18 years of age and faded away simultaneously. With a final smile and a last party, it was celebrated once more, to say good bye in dignity and with a smile on the faces.

5 days of Berlin – 2nd day

From my point of view, Schöneberg is a must go whenever I am in Berlin. Schöneberg is diverse and colourful and offers a wide range of possibilities. This neighbourhood has produced well known actors and artists like Marlene Dietrich, The Comedian Harmonists and Helmut Newton and JFK’s world-famous „Ich bin ein Berliner“ was spoken at […]

5 days of Berlin – Appetizer

At least out of the bed, but still footsore and weary. I’m totally flashed and not least my Berlin friend is to blame for, who has dragged me up and through Berlin – merciless. You must have guess it, I have been in Berlin again and as usual, I have shot plenty of pictures. And […]
