“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.

MILK ME – LAUNCH PARTY

MILK ME is a new Berlin based events and promotion company operating out of Urban Spree in the RAW Area. MILK ME works in conjuction with Urban Spree to bring you the best, the fastest and the loudest we can find. Fuck your ears. xxx

Autist
Autist is a 4 piece live electronic band from Berlin that borders on a mix of psych, grunge, dance and punk.
Formed in 2014, it consists of former members of the electro-punk band Aniaetleprogrammeur and drummer Christopher Chartrand (Crystal Castles, Cauldron).
Autist is gloriously noisy, imaginative and fun, disturbing and danceable in equal measure. Its shards of thumping beats and razor guitar provokes exodus, manic and brutal dancing.
Autist have performed live in Berlin, Prague, Brno, Vienna and Warsaw as support for Ethan Kath of Crystal Castles and have also performed a slew of local headlining acts around Berlin and neighboring Europe

Rolling Stone
“A brutally raw record, occupying the slither of space between knife-edge tension and collapsing despair.”
INTRO Magazin
“Es drückt, es schabt, es stochert, und doch wohnt dem Debüt des Berliner Noise-Trios Heads eine silbrig schwebende Zärtlichkeit inne.”
FUZE Magazine
“Schwärzer, beseelter und abgehangener geht’s kaum!”

A moody bass/drums duo with a serpentine voice in turns coaxing and slapping you in the face. A mix of noise and experimental rock influences keeping it catchy and sexy. It is a dry/wet game perfect for the mating season.

❱MIDIMAN is our local secret weapon to fire up the dancefloor while remaining distant from trendy House and EDM beats, he literally destroyed the Evoke 2014 Outdoor party with his own homebrew Hard Techno style performed on a couple of Gameboys with the finesse of a true Techno wizard! Consequently his contacts in Europe have been growing up allowing him to play in cities such as Köln, Wuppertal, Dresden, Frankfurt, Koblenz or Valencia.

Hza Bažant: NUSLE Exhibition and Book Release

Urban Spree Galerie is proud to introduce the new series of screen printed illustration works by Prague-based artist Hza Bažant as well as the exclusive german book release of “Nusle“, based upon the Czech artist’s impressive graphic saga. Nusle is a limited edition, self published artist book released in Germany by Urban Spree on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition at Urban Spree Galerie (03.09 / 12.09.2015).

1_Hza Bazant _ Metro _ 2013

Nusle is originally a large scale graphic cycle, consisting of individual large screen prints (70 x 100 cm) on textured & colored paper, on which stencils and spray paint have been applied to create subtle, metallic, largely fluorescent color effects and blurred lines.

5_Hza Bazant _ Bathing - detail _ 2013

The series started with 4 images based around the central character of the story, Mirek, prostrated along track lines, amidst chaotic elements.

06486_14321317825045

As years passed, the artist has been adding each year new images to the series. The series itself involves different colors of papers and different inks/paint tones so each series has a different outcome.

Today, the series consists of 14 images, creating a ever expanding universe and narrative. When juxtaposed, the series achieve a panorama of 140 cm x 700 cm.

IMG_0055

In 2015, the artist has published Nusle as a book format. The book contains 34 separate sheets which also work as a minimal approach to the large scale print series.

00772_1432131765465

Deeply rooted in Prague and czech culture, each image consists of surreal images of scenes depending on a number of seemingly unrelated, dreamlike stories, but in fact deeply intertwined. Individual images are rich scenes full of symbols, taking place in the backdrop of the urban periphery, which represents the peripheral areas of the mind.

IMG_20150817_1457365

 

All stories are told without words, by associations, symbols, and common features. This method is chosen with the intention to provide the reader with the greatest possible freedom of interpretation. The reader is author’s partner; he may create his network of relationships between individual characters of the story. Thus, it is possible to return to the book and read a different story each time.

Discovery of a new layer of meanings becomes an adventure similar to the exploration of the abandoned corners in an unfamiliar city, where discarded artifacts may create a mosaic of life stories of those who left them behind. It does not matter whether the story happened or could happen; its formation is more about us than about protagonists of the story. As literature uses words to form images, in this case we are using images to build a story. The concept of the Nusle project is based on a free play of imagination stimulated by rich visual perceptions.

The book (regular and deluxe edition) will be available at the Galerie during the exhibition and after the show while stocks last. You can find it in our webstore here.
