Urban Spree participates to Berlin’s first “Urban Art Week”

From 05 to 12 September 2018, Urban Spree will be part of the first URBAN ART WEEK, a new format for the Urban Art movement, which will be launched throughout Berlin. The Opening Night will happen at Urban Spree on the 05/09.

The Urban Art Week presents a comprehensive program and insights into the participating locations and projects under one roof. The format serves both to make Urban Art visible and to mediate, as well as to improve networking between local actors.

The URBAN ART WEEK provides insights into the locations and work of the participants, who present their own program for the URBAN ART WEEK. This gives visitors the opportunity to get to know Urban Art, Street art and Graffiti Writing within one week. The art program includes numerous exhibitions in galleries, project rooms, art spaces and institutions as well as performances, live painting and artistically designed walls.

A supporting program accompanies the URBAN ART WEEK: workshops by experts offer professional training and useful information for the daily work of artists and cultural workers. The two-day film program shows experimental films, portraits and documentaries about the French and German scene. Daily Street Art tours by local experts give visitors an insight into Urban Art in Berlin. Artists offer workshops for all ages to try out different techniques.

In Berlin, Urban Art has become an integral part of the cityscape, and large murals and surprising interventions in urban space can be found regularly. The city and its marketing is also adorned with the colourful paintings of its Urban Art artists, as is the local creative industry. But is there a dialogue between the scene and the city? Where is the line drawn between professional art and exploitation through increasingly fast-moving advertising purposes? Do we still have to ask the question whether Urban Art is art at all? The first URBAN ART WEEK pursues these thought-provoking impulses. In addition to discussions with representatives from city politics and local art institutions, the scene meets at workshops and symposia to discuss the concept of Urban Art and its own self- image. The week should leave something behind for the Berlin scene, it should convey a lasting value to the fast-moving Urban Art and create a basis for future communication.

Urban Art in Berlin has been around for decades and the media attention for it has increased. Berlin’s claim as an Urban Art Mecca is not only demonstrated by the last major exhibition projects with record attendance. The many small and independent art venues, project spaces and freelance artists who have been active in Berlin since the 1980s, have created the breeding ground for the subversive Berlin mix, that now makes the capital so attractive. URBAN ART WEEK is committed to their recognition and networking and ennobles the local scene with a gold medal – because Urban Art has actually earned this here for a long time. The program booklet with a city map, a website and a broad publicity campaign in German and English will accompany the week from 5 to 12 September 2018.

In Goth We Trust Special // Siouxsie & the Banshees

Achtung BERLIN!!!

Time for to wear a lot make up, hairspray! and a lot glam like those 80s dates where everything started!!

In Goth We Trust will take place at Urban Spree in a GLAM night with a special dedicated (Tribute) to one of the must knowing female voices into the 80´s postpunk/goth brithish scene, Siouxsie & the Banshees!

Siouxsie and the Banshees may not have been the most groundbreaking band of the late 1970s and early 80s – their name has gone unmentioned during the recent revival of interest in post-punk rock – but they turn out to be surprisingly good subjects for a biography.

The central figures in the band are remarkably candid – Siouxsie herself never misses the opportunity to make a catty remark, while Steve Severin seems to relish his caricatured uber-goth role as a kind of bass-playing Nosferatu.

Dj´s
– J.Macottela
– Lady Palmolive

MUSIC
– Classic 80´s PostPunk // Gothic Rock // Cold Wave, as well playing tunes from this new underground school.

VENUE

In Goth We Trust – Anniversary III

Anniversary Special Night!

In Goth We Trust was a travelling festival which began as an experiment to promote Gothic Rock in Mexico City five years ago.

tree years ago we decided to create a logo that represents our culture to other countries and identifies the project.

We chose Ollin and Quetzalcoatl to become part of In Goth We Trust, with the purpose of disseminating and supporting old school Gothic Rock, including post punk, deathrock, cold wave and dark synth.

We are grateful to the DJs and our audience. We would like to venture and experiment and this is why we made the decision to leave Mexico for Berlin, with the understanding that considerable competition and work would be required — to start from scratch is not easy — we appreciate the support of our guests, and individuals working with us.

After spending a year in Berlin we have had new experiences, made new friends and found a new audience.

We realize that everything changes, having to go at it alone and adapt. We intended to raise awareness of our work and make our own party at the WGT, both things we have achieved.

We have now decided to do something a little bigger than a party and we know we have the support of our audience.

This year we are honoured with the presence of three DJs from different cities:

London: DJ Matt (A New Dusk)

Leipzig: DJ Martin (Shock Wave)

Berlin: DJ Hazi (Angst Pop)

And of course DJs Sharp & Lady Palmolive (In Goth We Trust)

We will also have the Art Exhibition Gotikatur, because we know that in our subculture not only the music is important.

“Girl Power” Berlin Movie Premiere

Urban Spree is hosting the Berlin Premiere of “Girl Power”, a much-awaited documentary movie presenting the underworld of international female graffiti writers.

Directed by czech female writer Sany, 7 years in the making, spanning 15 cities, portraying the work and lifestyle of 28 graffiti artists and photographers, Girl Power is an intense travelogue that embarks you from Prague to Moscow, Cape Town, Kabul, Sydney, Madrid, Berlin, Toulouse, Barcelona and all the way to the legendary New York pioneer Lady Pink.

The graffiti community is predominantly a man’s world, and men often share the view that graffiti – namely the illegal kind – is not for girls. And yet women have become increasingly more emancipated in recent years; there are female graffiti shows, magazines and websites. Girl Power captures the stories of ladies who have succeeded in the male graffiti world.

However, Girl Power is more than just a look into the graffiti microcosm; it tells the moving story of Czech writer Sany, who decided in 2009 to capture female emancipation in graffiti on film and to give other girls and women the possibility to express themselves. It took her 7 long years to complete the documentary. We follow her life with graffiti, her motivation and values that keep changing as the years go by. We will also meet her family, who are absolutely unaware of Sany’s “second life”. Sany sacrifices a lot for the film, but even when she’s at the end of her tether, she refuses to give up on her dream – to make the very first movie depicting females in graffiti.

The screening will be in the Biergarten, in presence of the director of Girl Power + Q & A.
