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.

One thing is for sure – the change

Those who know this blog know, the change is a recurring theme here. Sometimes you win – sometimes you loose. What you get is something new, even if you haven’t asked for it. This time it’s more a loss; 04/2019 I have made the first picture of it and it was untouched since then. Now […]

One thing is for sure – the change

My timing is terrible. My last visit at HoF Villa RÜ is just two days ago and during this walk the question occupied me, where the hell KEDO has gone to paint his pieces. His last piece at Villa RÜ was in July 2020. Hardly retruned home, www-egghead brought a new piece of KEDO at […]
