The Masked Singer – Essen vs. Berlin

The word is out: the pandemic has been declared over. Other issues are now on the agenda. The TV programme has not got any better, but there are still constants you can rely on: They are dressing up again and they are also performing again, more or less skilfully. Last Saturday, a new season of […]

Bilk S – Opinion not Judgement

Actually, the last article concerning the change at Bilk station was supposed to go online yesterday. A report on my walk in Dortmund harbour and the Backboard Jam last weekend was planned for today. But I’ve received so many messages on Instagram about the changes at Bilk station that I want to add this post. […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Now the long wall opposite the entrance to the station remains to be discussed only. For some time it has been firmly in the hands of the graffiti writers, not always to the advantage of a universally pleasing appearance. The times when paste-ups and stickers shared the space here, are unfortunately over. At least I […]

Der schöne Hermann shows „Cardboard Dummies“

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 […]

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. So in August 2021 with the exhibition of works by R.F.ART and Frank Brenner, Hangover Gallery was opened at Stresemannstraße 41 […]

Mercy – the Russians are coming

This is a sad day. It’s 30 years ago since the Berlin Wall has fallen and the Cold War has come to an end. I never thought that I would have to face war again on European soil within my lifetime. But – sad but true – Russia made truth on its months-long threats and […]

Varieties – The Peanuts – Charlie Brown and Friends

Charles M. Schulz knew what he was doing when he created the lovable eternal loser Charlie Brown and his friends. The characters of the Peanuts always deal with the really big questions. The bossy, sharp-tongued Lucy offers psychological help and Charlie Brown makes use of her when he despairs of life. Snoopy, his Beagle, who, […]

Varieties – Superman

Superheroes don’t exist? Au contraire – they are all around us, the heroes of everyday life. But apart of all those people keeping society going, there is Superman. For me still the superhero par excellence and finding him in the streets is always pure fun. RF ART USW (02/2015) unknown artist (2016) & MATRYOSHKA (2017) […]

Varieties – Garfield

I hate beeing restricted (#FUCKCORONA) and watch myself getting angrier every day and most of all, more impatient. With my fellow human beings, who are becoming more and more inconsiderate every day – and with the politicians, who are failing all along the line all the time. So let us return to a more pleasant […]

Varieties – Cops

Lets go on with my mini series „Varieties“. It will help me getting through the period of my voluntary retirement from public life. I hopefully won’t run out of ideas until there is more reliable information about Omicron, the new Corona mutation (#FUCKCORONA): I started with the virus itself and ended with the plague and […]
