One Thing is for sure – The Change

The wall at GeKu Haus, situated at Kreuzeskirchstraße, in the heart of Creative Quarter North, is redesigned frequently, since I have discovered it in June 2014. In September 2019 MR.OREO had painted a portrait of Greta Thunberg, who is the face of „Fridays for Future“ movement, to support the protests for a better climate policy. […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

Since my first visit in Dortmund’s Unionviertel I was keen of an old advertising mural at Kraftstoff, a popular pub and beergarden at Augustastraße 2. Unfortunately I didn’t got a proper picture of it and when I was there in October 2020, I found the facade scaffolded and did’nt foresee anything good, I didn’t know […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

The wall opposite Dortmunder U, designed in November 2013 with „HYPE“ by Mark Gmehling, has got a new face. Curated by 44309 STREET//ART GALLERY, artist collective „MAN KENNT SICH“ (Herr Choko, A.Elementar, Kasino 44, Call Me Marc & Dr.Aco) has redesigned this eyecatcher wall in the heart of Unionviertel. Unfortunately the exhibition „I was here“, […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

What a pity – A missed Opportunity On my way to Hall of Fame Auf der Donau, for years I have passed an advertising mural at Hohenburgstraße 80. When I last passed there, the wall was scaffolded and whitened. For the future I expected a new mural in the same style as before. What a […]

One thing is for sure – the change

For a long time the facade of Villa RÜ, facing the walls of the Hall of Fame at the footpath to Christinenpark, was almost untouched by the writters. Then, in May 2020, some recycling containers have been established. Those containers were the perfect ladder and the go-signal for the writers to occupy more space. The […]

One thing is for sure – The Change

The clock is ticking, time is running out for the year 2020, which wasn’t one of my favorite years so far – #FUCKCORONA! Same procedure as every year – it’s time to look back at the changes at one of the same wall at HoF Auf der Donau in the course of the last 12 […]

One thing is for sure – The Change

The Change – an always recurring topic in this blog. Over the years I have noticed a lot of changes in my surrounding. Sometimes it feels like a big loss when old familiar pieces of art in public space disappear, but mostly you get something new as a compensation. Better or not – the times, […]

One thing is for sure – The Change

Shame – Essen tidies up the inner city. A chameleon and an old piece of ADD ENTRY is lost. In times of Corona (#FUCKCORONA), people are bored and have too much time. Their normal strategies of distraction don’t work during the Lockdown. Fitness studios, cafes, pubs and every other beloved entertainments – nada! So they […]
