One Thing is for sure – The Change

A lot has changed around the gallery Töchter & Söhne at Reisholzer Werftstraße 73. Accompanying their exhibition, which can be seen until 28 October, EKSIT and FUME have of course left their mark.

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 […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

We are slowly approaching the end of my mini-series dealing with the changes at Bilker Bahhof. The cable distributors are on the central reservation, where the trams also run. I don’t know who or what they supply with electricity, but in the past they have often been used as a background for markers, stickers and […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

The Friedrichstraße railway subway at Bilker Bahnhof has long been a hot spot for street art of all kinds, but this area has recently undergone a radical transformation. At the entrance and exit of the tunnel there is a wall element that is remotely reminiscent of an alkhoven or a niche. This niche has always […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Let’s go on with the changes at Bilk S. Today the columns are the topic on my agenda. There is no shortage of pillars at Bilk station. I have never counted them, but I have often photographed parts of them. They have always been used for billposting, although not always for advertising. Let’s have a […]

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

Lets have a look at the changes at the busy pedestrian walkway between Bilk S and Weberstraße, leading to the next supermarket. The surrounding walls and the city drainage pumping station were rather annoying and not always eye-catching for passers-by.

Bilk S – One Thing is for sure – The Change

When I started a new hobby in 2013, Düsseldorf Bilk and especially the immediate area around Bilk station very quickly appeared on my radar. Always on the lookout for information about my new hobby, I decided to check out an exhibition that dealt with stencils only. When I got off the train at Bilk S […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Rhine Park was opened to the public in May 2009. Originally, the area was planned as part of the Federal Garden Show 2011 in Duisburg, but this had to be cancelled for cost reasons. The approx. 25ha site had been used by heavy industry since the middle of the 19th century. Parts of the former […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

It was in March 2019 when I have seen this wolf-mechanimal, designed by ARDIF in Düsseldorf Bilk, Brunnenstraße 7 for the first time. Yesterday I have seen it again and it was almost untouched after all these years. The change we are talking about here concerns the immediate environment of this wolf. The entrance to […]
