City Topics


Cities across the globe go through transitional phases of artists’ activities on the streets. Definition, acceptance or rejection of graffiti are also constantly in flow.

Many examples of street art can be found tucked away in residential side streets and more openly on house frontages or bridges in Düsseldorf. Official and semi-official exhibits of such art forms have also been staged in the past. Kiefernstrasse is an exciting street to visit. Whole house frontages have been utilised as a canvas for street art by many creative and talented artists.

Aggressive graffiti has outlived its day in most neighbourhoods of the city and owners of property or vehicles can sleep more peacefully.
