EIKE & COSY for a better feeling at Kupferdreh Bus Station

After a little more than 18 months of construction and an investment of 5,8 Million Euro, Essen Kupferdreh’s new modern local transport hub was opened in 2019. Very quickly after its opening, the new bus station became a space-off area. The grey concrete surroundings were tagged wildly and most of the passers-by were confirmed in […]

Supporting Structure Colour – EIKE

Jan Schoch’s project Stützwerk Farbe, which is partially sponsored by the Cultural Office of the City, progresses. The aim of the project is to design as much as possible of the grey concrete columns of Helbingbrücke, which is a bridge of highway A40 next to Essen’s main station.

The purpose of a speciality store for city change is?

Confessed, store for city change is a quite bumpy translation for „Fachgeschäft für Stadtwandel„, This institution was opened in an abandoned shop at Gemarkenstraße 72 in Holsterhausen, in December 2018, to change the neighbourhood and the life of people on site with means of sustainability. Now, one year later, the initiative starts leaving conspicuous traces. […]

One Thing is for sure – The Change

The who-is-who of the local graffiti scene has left traces at Hobeisenbrücke all the time. I don’t know, who the customer is, but one thing is for sure: the new painting is a clear win for that spot; colour tops the bill. The mural isn’t yet finished, but it bears the signature of Jan Schoch […]

Murals in Essen (7th)

I looked again and found some more, to make it 70! I just have checked it out; my last post about the murals in Essen was in August 2018. Since then, a lot has happened. We have got some new, not only big facades, but some shutters and other commercial and commisioned works. Kaiser-Wilhelm-Park; Chester […]

Creative Quarter North – New findings

I’m always excited, finding paste-ups in Essen; paste-ups are rare here and they often have a very short life time. Creative Quarter Essen is changing. You can find abandoned shops everywhere and when the windows of those shops are broken, the glass fronts very often are replaced by chipboards. Then artists and some glue come […]

Uecke lives and thrives

Structural change continues to hold the majority of regions firmly in its grip. A few years ago Ückendorf was charcterized by vacancy, migration […]
