On 27.08.22 from 1pm until late night, Backboard Jam on the grounds of graffiti agency MORE THAN WORDS went into the second round as part of this year’s harbour walk. As a supporting programme, MTW had invited a number of well-known graffiti artists to redesign the walls in the immediate vicinity of the agency. ND […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

Next Saturday, 27.8.2022, a harbour walk will take place in Dortmund’s harbour for the 9th time. From 1 pm, Krupplyn’s Backboard Jam will take place in the heart of the harbour at Drehbrückenstraße. That means hip-hop from local artists, live & open-air, beats & rhymes to the ears. For this event, More Than Words has […]

OK – There is a fiftyfifty chance that I am right to name the true originator of this funny cactus. Last time I was bloody wrong and it wasn’t BRES who had painted it. This time I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, this cactus was made by NICK KNITE. I’m […]
