Frankfurt 2020 (12.9.)

Cities and regions

Flyer2 2020


The Dirty Dozen painted the motto: "Cities and Regions". Basically similar to the motto in 2017.
The background was the connection to Europe, because we painted 100 more meters of wall from the company Mandausch/Reißwolf to the left of last year's wall.
As part of the concept, the participants incorporated elements of their cities, regions or homeland into the pictures.

Involved were:

BORN CREW (Frankfurt), MISTER (Berlin), CINK (Frankfurt), AMBER (Frankfurt), RADIK.42 (Koblenz), MONKEY (Wiesbaden), BLOK SHOK (Aschaffenburg), SPEEDY (Aschaffenburg), STEN (Aschaffenburg), LONE (Wiesbaden), ZWERG (Schweiz), JMS Cuts (Schweiz)

Frankfurt 2019 (28.+29.9.)


Flyer2a 2019

The dirty dozen had the motto: "Europe",.
The chosen spot of about 200m² was a facade of the company Mandausch/Reißwolf , which has been active in Frankfurt for 60 years and is one of the driving forces in commercial and private waste management and document destruction.
As part of the "Europe" concept, the participants creatively implemented their own interpretation and brought Europe in artistic form to the east of Frankfurt.

Frankfurt 2018 (08.+09.4.) 

Urban jungle (part 1) and Comicstrip (part 2)

Flyer2 2018

In spring 2018, "Das Dreckige Dutzend" appeared for the second time to design a large wall in Frankfurt. For this year, the area of the bridge at the Ginnheimer Wäldchen was chosen. Again this wall was painted in full height and width, and again interested people and critics were invited to be there and talk to us about the action. Radio (Radio X, Antenne Frankfurt) and press (Frankfurter Neue Presse) reported in advance and afterwards about the action and made it public.

The concept this year was "urban jungle", and the idea was to let pictures and plants grow out of the gray of the city (hence part of the painting in gray) and merge into green.
This time all 12 artists were complete and spent a great weekend together.

Part 2 

After the destruction of the "urban jungle" the wall was designed again with a different cast. The theme in this case: "Comic Strip". The concept this time was to divide the wall into the usual, known from comic books, boxes, which each participant filled with a motif of his choice.

Frankfurt 2017 (08.+ 09.4.)

From city to city: Welcome to Frankfurt

Flyer 2017

Spring 2017 marked the start of a recurring campaign to transform a public space into a work of art. This year, the choice fell on the large area of one of the two sides of the Frankfurter Breitenbrücke bridge on the railroad line, which was just right to transform its concrete front. For this purpose, the surface was painted in its full height and width.
With this action we hoped to show that graffiti is not just daubing, but art. Skeptics and interested people were invited to come by, watch and ask us questions.

The response was consistently positive and many passers-by stopped and were pleased with the newly designed area.
The "Frankfurter Neue Presse" was on site and reported on the action in an almost full-page article. And also the "Hessischer Rundfunk" was interested and asked to send photos and videos.

Unfortunately, only 10 of the 12 invited artists took part, as two cancelled at short notice. Thus "Das Dreckige Dutzend" could not live up to its name, but could nevertheless convince through creativity and with the result.
