The starting point:
In Düsseldorf, we already have some beautiful murals. But there should be more. In particular, it would be desirable if more pictures by international artists helped shape the face of the city. The works by Pixelpancho, Jana&Js, case and Orticanoodles that already exist in the city have great
appeal, even beyond the city’s borders, have been reviewed in various online magazines and are photographed by visitors to the city and shared on social networks.
Unfortunately, some of the walls that have already been transformed into works of art are located in streets and neighborhoods that are not so heavily frequented by visitors. Thus, visitors to the city must be guided to these works of art. This is currently done with the Urban Art Walk and from March 2022 also with the urban Art Ride Düsseldorf.
It would be our wish for Düsseldorf to gain one or more walls at central points of the city. Since such areas are rather rare and it would be a pity to show only one artist permanently on it, our idea is to have such a wall in regular rotation, or to subdivide it and have different artists play on it.
Thus, the city of Düsseldorf and its citizens and visitors always get a new work of art, visitors can watch the artists creating their image, the wall is alive, a constant process. Examples from other cities are, for example, the Bowery Wall in New York or Rue Oberkampf and MUR12 in Paris.
The fact that the pictures can only be seen for a limited period of time creates an additional incentive to visit them, because otherwise you wouldn’t have seen them in “real” life, but only on a photo. Similar to visiting an exhibition. A curated wall of this kind, which is regularly reloaded, has the character of a museum in public space
