|Frankfurt 2018 (08.+09.4.)|
In spring 2018, "The Dirty Dozen" appeared for the second time to design another large wall in Frankfurt. For this year the area of the bridge at the Ginnheimer Wäldchen had been chosen. This wall was painted again in full height and width, and once again interested parties and critics were invited to participate and talk to us about the campaign. Radio (Radio X, Antenne Frankfurt) and the press (Frankfurter Neue Presse) reported about the action before and after the event and made it public.
This year's concept was: "Urban Jungle", and the idea was to let pictures and plants grow out of the grey of the city (hence part of the painting in grey) and into the green.
After the destruction of the "Urban Jungle", the wall was redesigned with a different cast. The theme in this case: "Comicstrip". The concept this time was to divide the wall into the usual boxes known from comic books, which each participant filled with a design of his choice.
Urban Jungle: DAWO (Frankfurt), CINK (Frankfurt), RADIK, SEAN (Bad Homburg), ZACK (Frankfurt), CAESAR (Hofheim), AMBER (Frankfurt), JAY-T (Bad Vilbel), WIRED TO THE MOON, MIND21 (Hofheim), LANDSTREICHER, MONE (Bad Soden Allendorf),
Comicstrip: KICK (Frankfurt), REDOK (Frankfurt), SEAN (Bad Homburg), CESM (Frankfurt), ETAS (Frankfurt), AMBER (Frankfurt), CINK (Frankfurt), WIRED TO THE MOON, DER SNOK (Mainz)

From city to city - Welcome to Frankfurt
Spring in 2017 was the beginning of a recurring action to transform a space in public into art. This year the large space of one two sides of the Breitenbachbruecke, along the train line, in Frankfurt was predestined to have it's ugly beton face being transformed into an artwork. Therefore two sides of the wall have been designed in it's full height and width. With that we hoped to show that Graffiti is art and not only scribbling. Critics and interested persons had been invited to come by, watch and ask us questions.
The resonance was big and many passers-by were happy about the area which now shines in new splendour.
Unfortunately only 10 of 12 planned artists took part in the kick-off-event since two writers had cancelled in short notice. Thus the Dirty Dozen couldn't live up it's name but was nevertheless able to convince by it's creativity and the result.
