Unlike U – Trainwriting Berlin:
Was treibt Jugendliche und teilweise auch noch erwachsene Männer dazu, sich ihre Nächte um die Ohren zu schlagen, Überwachungskameras zu überbrücken, den Wachschutz zu beobachten und hohe Geld- sowie Haftstrafen in Kauf zu nehmen? Was treibt diese Menschen dazu, tonnenweise Geld in Sprühdosen zu investieren, keine Gegenleistung dafür zu erhalten und letztendlich nur in einem extrem kleinen Kreis zu Ruhm und Ehre zu gelangen?


–> hinweis: die doku dauert ca. 90min., danach wiedeholt sich das ganze noch mal ohne sound. (aus gruenden wahrscheinlich.)

Der Film “Unlike-U – Trainwriting in Berlin” ist nun seit einigen Tagen offiziell verboten. Das Landgericht Berlin hat in einem Urteil vom 10.05.2012 (Az. 16 O 199/11) die Verbreitung ungenehmigter Filmaufnahmen zu Graffiti auf den U-Bahnen der Hauptstadt untersagt und somit hat der Fall Tragweite für die Zukunft derartiger Dokumentationen bekommen. Das Grundsatzurteil wurde gefällt weil die BVG die Filmarbeiten auf ihren U-Bahnhöfen und Betriebsgeländen nicht genehmigt hat und gegen die Produzenten auf Unterlassung der Verbreitung des Films geklagt hatte.

// Nichtsdestotrotz ist er komplett auf youtube. Einer der sehenswertesten Filme zum Thema, vielleicht sogar für nicht-Enthusiasten ;)

Graffiti Wars:
Graffiti – the work of mindless vandals or creative practitioners? To some it is art, to others a sign we’ve lost control of our cities.

Since Roman times graffiti has been a form of anti-establishment rebellion. But today it’s transcending social nuisance to gain cultural and artistic credibility, unprecedented prices at auction and even presidential and prime ministerial approval.

However, at street level a bitter war is being waged between graffiti writers, street artists and the authorities. While graffiti writers face trial and prison sentences for their art, some street artists’ work is lauded and protected behind Perspex.

This issue is at the heart of a graffiti war being fought on the streets of London between one of the founding fathers of the British graffiti scene and the most famous street artist in the world.

In London over the past 18 months the tension between the camps has played out in a battle of spray cans between freehand graffiti writer King Robbo and his nemesis, the stencil-using street artist Banksy.

The graffiti war between the two men began in the early 90s but was re-ignited by what was widely seen as an unforgiveable transgression of strict graffiti rules by Banksy.

It was an act that pulled 80s legend King Robbo out of retirement to retaliate in the place where it all began, the streets.

The film goes behind enemy lines as the war escalates, until tragic and unforeseen circumstances bring about an unexpected ceasefire.

anti-nazi symbole streetworker

65 jahre und auf der strasse gegen nazis.

Irmela Mensah-Schramm is well known in Berlin for her effort against Nazi symbols, signs and slogans in public space. The 65 years old anti-fascist graffiti-grandma documents Nazi graffiti and stickers before she buffs them and is in that way a perfect example for modern anti-fascist work.

Vincenzo Caruso and Fabrizio Mario Lussu are currently working on a video documentary called “The Hate Destroyer” about her work, the ideals and Nazi graffiti in general!

Guerilla Art:
A new generation of street artists are the latest hot property of art collectors and advertising brands. Featuring Futura 2000, Rammellzee, Banksy, Os Gemeos, Space Invader, Barnstormers, Espo, WK Interact, Zevs, Blek Le Rat, André, Noki, Miss Van and Eine. Filmed in New York, London, Paris, Sao Paulo and Tokyo the documentary introduces the graffiti-inspired street art pioneers Futura, Rammellzee and Blek Le Rat. Art patron Agnés B and art curator Jerome Sans comment on the early days of Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat, when graffiti changed the streets of New York and the urban landscapes of the rest of the world.
The film portrays a new generation of street artists led by UK stencil artist Banksy, whose artworks achieve record prices at auction houses like Sotheby’s and who is collected by Damien Hirst and celebrities Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt. Other new street art styles featured are the mosaic tile wall images of Invader, the lyrical folklore inspired murals by Brazilian twins Os Gemeos and the “Visual Kidnappings” of advertising billboards by Parisian artist Zevs.

GUERILLA ART reveals how street artists have developed a unique system of economic survival. Their works are bought by young peers and new collectors. Street artist collective “Pictures on Wall” sells limited-edition prints online and organises the Santa’s Ghetto art sale, filmed right in the centre of London’s shopping district. Once street artists have made a name for themselves, they run their own clothing labels or design special lines for streetwear companies. Futura creates record covers and logos for youth brands. Parisian artist André is a typical cultural entrepreneur running an art store, working on designer toy lines as well as opening clubs in Paris and other cities. Noki creates one-off anti-couture fashion pieces using street art techniques. Rammellzee performs a mythology of his own Gods in clubs and gallery spaces. “Over the last few years street art has established itself as an art form. But where can this street-based movement go from here, after works by Banksy have been boarded up, chiselled off the walls, to be sold on eBay for money far exceeding the gallery prices?” Tim Marlow – White Cube Gallery Curator. “I have just found out about the book called GUERILLA ART by Sebastian Peiter, probably one the best books about graffiti and street art concepts. I really like the fact I am part of it. Thanks.” WK Interact – Street Artist.

Live Free
a documentary short on Royal Street Tattoo written by Bijani Casalan and directed by Michael Howell. Although Live Free features Royal Street Tattoo and “covers the philosophy of tattooing as seen from the eyes of the artists at the shop” the documentary goes much deeper.

celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural moments of a generation

In the early 1990’s a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the “establishment” art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture.

Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories. It speaks to themes of what happens when the outside becomes “in” as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today’s youth.
