Camps Breakerz Tour in Europe "Break the Wall" "Denken wir an Gaza, denken wir an Krieg. Das ist nicht falsch, denn dort ist ja auch Krieg. Was aber übersehen wird, ist, dass es in Gaza dennoch ein Leben gibt, dass es einen Alltag gibt und Menschen, die versuchen, unter schwierigsten Umständen Freude und Hoffnung in Gaza am Leben zu erhalten. Zu diesen Menschen gehört die Camps Breakerz Crew (CB-Crew), Breakdancer, die derzeit unter dem Motto „Break the Wall“ durch Europa touren. Oder zumindest touren wollten. Denn die Ausreise wurde ihnen verweigert. Und so konnten sie nicht – wie eigentlich geplant – am 24. Juni im Berliner Yaam auftreten."

one member of the Camps Breaker crew could come out of Gaza @ yaam, berlin 2015
 Yesterday nice event at Yaam for supporting the Camps Breakerz Crew. Break Dance Of Palestine from Gaza..Just two of them were there, because the other ones did not get the permits to get out of Gaza. We could talk to them via skype and they performed in front of the computer....Hope they can go out soon!!!
Gaza is still a big prison, even for dancers, for everyone..

As a former editor, art director and at least editor in chief for Backjumps magazine/Fanzine, I had the honor to be responsible for the study of style room for the 20+1 exhibition, that was part of the archive section. it took me 5 full days to oversee the backjumps archive in complete and to select a small amount of mostly unseen works in form of original sketches,written texts and photos. For the presentation of the selection I choose a mix of frames and b/w paper and copys of some strong already in context known images and publishing, to underneath the flavor of time.
I choose unseen stuff from Billy168, Noc167, Kool161, Part1, T-kid170, Kase2, Kase-FBA, Shame126 and many others New yorkers, unpublished written text from Phase2, also unpublished trains from Dondi and lots of other raw diamonds from berlin and the world of writing. To many to line up all the names but putted all together in context, with titles like Inner-city functions or everlasting aesthetics...

For the Exhibition was a special programm developed that maked it possible to switch between the film easily...
