No Man's Land - abandoned impressions at xlab

No Man's land has the silhouette of slim chimneys tapering into the sky, her eyes are as intence as the black windows staring at us, her surface is chipped and cracked skin, her hair is rusty and hazed, her soul is as dark as the dust dancing at our passage. Yet she is so sexy, charming and mysterious. Wrapped into ghost silence slums, abandoned factories, derelict buildings and barren lands, she traps us into another dimension, away from traditional sense of time. She welcomes us into wounded and forgotten lands, full of history and stories to be told, making us wondering on what 's happened in those places. Like a step back in a Time that once was so glorious and productive, with the noise of gears and machinery in operation. Now you can feel just a far away feedback, but still containing a mysterious force within itself, like a muffled voice that wants to be heard.
According to the manifesto of modern society, what is now useless, ugly, dilapidated must be sacrificed to the new, at all costs, what is private must be locked and for what concerns abandoned place the access is forbidden.
The explorer perfectly knows that he has to break down these limitations, to rediscover and reclaim the sites, to venture into their belly leaving untouched and unspoiled their soul: taking only photographs and leaving nothing but footprints. Beeing there, yet walking invisible.
After his passage remains only the dust between shadowplays, the fading haze of a chimney, the rust dripping from the walls, the history that is forgotten, the city that is transformed.

The young swiss photograper Gregoire Chachemaille presents a selection of photographies taken since 2006 into the suburbs and abandoned places of Berlin.

Muralismo Morte - Book release

BOOK - Release !!!

We are delighted to commence our fall season with a beautiful new title.

Wir freuen uns sehr mit diesem außergewöhnlich schönen Buch in den Herbst zu starten.

Muralismo Morte - The Rebirth of Muralism in Contemporary Urban Art reveals the vibrancy of a new type of muralism as it rises from the shadows of urban spaces in metropolises worldwide. From much celebrated pieces in prominent places to those hidden in anonymous, decayed ruins, it features the large-scale murals and small interventions of some of the most exciting international artists associated with this movement. Muralist and art activist Jens Besser uncovers these treasures and offers special insights into the emerging scene that is coloring our urban experience.

Texts by Robert Kaltenhäuser, Peter Michalski, Michael Haas (Facadeprinter), Markus Dorninger (Tagtool),Thilo Fröbel, Resto, Tec, Jens Besser and Kain Logos

Artists/Künstler: Roa, Remed, Klub 7, Aec & Waone (Interesni Kazki), Blu, Os Gemeos, Escif, Iemza, Tagtool, Sonice Development, 108, Resto, Aris, Kislow , Eleuro , Sepe, Kenor and many more.

Muralismo Morte - The Rebirth of Muralism in Contemporary Urban Art, zeigt die Dynamik einer neuen Form der Wandmalerei, die seit einigen Jahren weltweit aus den Schatten der urbanen Räume der Metropolen hervor tritt. Von den gefeierten Arbeiten an prominenten Plätzen zu den anonymen Werken, versteckt in verfallenen Ruinen, bietet dieses Buch die großen Murals und kleinen Interventionen einiger der spannendsten internationalen Künstler dieser Bewegung. Muralist und Kunst-Aktivist Jens Besser deckt diese Kostbarkeiten auf und bietet einen tiefen Einblick in eine aufstrebende Szene, die unsere urbane Landschaft in neuen Farben zeichnet.
