In celebration of the district of Stormarn´s 150 year Julilium, I initiated a art / history interdisiplinary project working together with a A-level art class at the TMS Grammar school in Bad Oldesloe. The 10 pupils researched and investigated the history of Bad Oldesloe during it´s earlier years as a renowned spa town. Using paper collage as their medium they then produced small works.
The Large 200cm x 140cm tile Mural, depicting a selection of the student´s collages, will finally be presented to the public.
Using digital ceramic transfers the images were fired onto frost resistant tiles. On the 1st December the framed mural can be seen installed onto the exterior wall of the district´s archive and department of culture building in Bad Oldesloe and will be unveiled at 10 am. At the same time, in the same buildng we´ll be opening the accompanying exhibition at which the pupil´s original paper collages can be seen. The exhibition will run til 5th January 2018. This project was kindly supported by Kreis Stormarn.

The work of artist Nevin Aladag which is installed at the Hessian Museum during Dodumenta 14 in Kassel Germany.
If you visit Documenta 14 in Kassel this year you might want to get a rare glimpe of this glass mosaic, which for the last 40 years has been hidden from the outside world. The 14 meter long illuminated mosaic, by German artist Dieter von Andrian (1925-1922) is fixed to an interior wall of a closed down, otherwise shut off to the public, underground tram station situated in front of Kassel´s main railway station. Sadly parts of the mosaic have been vandalised but tere is talk of the town removing the mosaic so it can be repaired and then installed at a new location. But in the meantime when Documenta comes to an end mid September the tunnel and its mosaic will once again be sealed off from the world above.

A Mosaic of handmade Ceramic parts on a church wall in St. Pauli, Hamburg. This street art style mosaic celebrates “Park Fiction” which was fought for by the St.Pauli neighbourhood. The initial plan by the Senat to build concrete “blocks” of buildings on this site and in doing so completely close off the fantastic views of the Elbe river below was chucked and instead the open space was redeveloped into a park where a lot of dogs, local residents and tourists hang out.
