There are Shows and then There are Shows

The Reinking Project seems to be one of those epic shows that will inspire almost anyone lucky enough to visit it. It includes one of the most amazing lineups we can think of: Akay, Herbert Baglione, Banksy, Blu, Dave the Chimp, Ben Eine, Shepard Fairey, Mark Jenkins, Os Gêmeos, Space Invader, Swoon, Zevs, and many more. The show is taking place in Bremen, Germany at the Weserburg from May 16 through August 30th, so there's time to make your travel arrangements. Read on for some photos and a link to a very solid photo report of the show by Just.

Works from the Reinking Collection

"Urban Art is everywhere. Unsolicited, it leaves its traces and signs in urban space. It conquers the public sphere with stickers, posters, extensive murals, and stencil graffiti. It’s galleries are the world’s streets. What began as graffiti in the large cities on America’s east coast forty years ago has since experienced a decisive development. Even if the majority of actions continue to be produced anonymously and illegally, it is no longer exclusively a phenomenon associated with youth culture. Many of the protagonists have emancipated themselves from the pictorial language of graffiti writing and experimented with new forms of expression. With their subtle and humorous, occasionally offensive interventions in the urban landscape they attempt to force open familiar visual habits. As a rule, they are not concerned with damaging the urban infrastructure but with participating in a dialogue with the public."


Participating artists: Akay, Akim, Ash, Herbert Baglione, Banksy, Blu, Boxi, Brad Downey, Bronco, Daniel Man, Dave the Chimp, Mark Jenkins, Miss Van, Mode 2, Os Gêmeos, Mirko Reisser (DAIM), Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, Swoon, DTagno, Tilt, Vitché, Heiko Zahlmann, Zevs, Zezão
