Bereits seit über 10 Jahren unterstützen sich Stef Alexander und Andy Bothwell, besser bekannt als P.O.S und Astronautalis gegenseitig auf ihren Platten. Vor fünf Jahre veröffentlichten sie dann unter dem Namen Four Fists gemeinsame Tracks. “This is something Stef and I have been working on and dreaming about since we became friends in 2004“, sagt Andy. Nun sind die beiden endlich zurück! Ohne Zweifel sind die Freunde zwei der stilsichersten Rapper aus Minneapolis – ohne Angst vor Neuem. “Nobody’s Biz” heisst der Opener der langerwarteten VÖ: “It’s fucked up, we all know it baby/the question is, why the fuck we waitin’?” Hip-Hop trifft Indie-Punk am 23.01. live im Urban Spree.

Urban Spree celebrates 10 years of the Astronaut Cosmonaut Wall

To mark the 10-year anniversary of the iconic “Astronaut Cosmonaut” mural painting in Berlin Kreuzberg, Urban Spree Galerie invites the French street artist Victor Ash for a special pop up exhibition.

The exhibition will be centered around the cult figure of the Astronaut with numerous original/stenciled works on paper and a mural at Urban Spree. A series of screen prints is expected to be released as well.

Alongside Blu’s now gone white characters on the Cuvrybrache, Victor Ash’s “Astronaut Cosmonaut” has achieved a cult mural status for Berlin.

Standing in Berlin-Kreuzberg near Kottbusser Tor and painted during the legendary Backjumps Festival #3 in 2007, the painting of a floating astronaut on 22 x 14 meters strikes a particular chord in Berlin.

For the parisian artist born in 1968 and fascinated by the Cold War, space exploration, graffiti, subcultures & electronic music, Berlin was to become from the mid to late 80s and since then a focal point of his attention, with regular trips to the city alongside artistic projects and residencies.

In 2007, the Backjumps Festival – brilliantly curated by Adrian Nabi, gives Victor Ash the occasion to paint a big wall. Victor wants to concentrate and express his past experiences and vision of Berlin, the space race between the USSR and the USA but also the different Berlin subcultures and the desire to escape reality. “I got inspired by the song from David Bowie “Space Oddity” from 1969 in which he tells the story of a astronaut who gets lost in space and later on with the song “Ashes to Ashes” in 1981 where Bowie tells us that the spaceman was in fact a junkie on a trip”.

For the artist, the “Astronaut/Cosmonaut” represents the will to escape to other universes, “like as a little child, I escaped to a fantasy world with my space drawings and as a teenager, I escaped to subcultures to find my identity in the urban environment where I grew up”.

Victor Ash's Xberg Astronaut

Victor_Ash_astronaut_100x70_1024x1024Victor Ash (b. 1968) made the Astronaut mural (22m x 14m) in Berlin Kreuzberg as part of the 3rd editon of the Backjumps Festival in 2007. Since then, the wall has become one of the street art landmarks of Berlin, together with the famous murals by Blu, Roa or Os Gemeos, all in Kreuzberg.

Victor Ash collaborated with Dolly Demoratti and her screen print studio Mother Drucker (currently an Urban Spree Resident Artist and Studio) to produce a limited edition screenprint of the wall on a 300 gsm archival paper (100 x 70 cm).

The first original run has been sold out. Mother Drucker x Victor Ash are now releasing a 2nd edition (or 2014 Edition) of 200 L.E. screen prints.

Yuto Yamada: Berlin/Tokyo II

Urban Spree Galerie presents ‘Berlin/Tokyo ll’, a photographic exhibition by Berlin-based Japanese photographer Yuto Yamada, opening on 17.11.2017 in our Galerie Ecke.

Berlin/Tokyo ll opens on the same night as Victor Ash’s 10-year Anniversary of the Astronaut Cosmonaut wall and will run until 10.12.2017.

 

Berlin and Tokyo are the two favorite topics of urban photographer Yuto Yamada and the subject of this exhibition one year after presenting his “Berlin/Tokyo” series at Urban Spree: Berlin as the city where he now lives and works since several year and the city of his childhood and youth, Tokyo.

In his ongoing series ‘Berlin/Tokyo’ he takes us on a journey to the dirty, abandoned side of Berlin with all its graffiti, destruction and decay, in absolute contrast with the modern and shiny photos of Tokyo’s illuminated cityscape, a stunning and surreal opposition.

 

‘BERLIN / TOKYO II’ is a photographic journey and modernist tale of two apparently opposed metropolises, the hi-tech Tokyo and the lo-fi Berlin.
