The Rise of Graffiti Writing – Dortmund, Berlin & Frankfurt (english subtitles)

Films like “Wild Style” by Charlie Ahearn (1982), “Style Wars” (1984) by Henry Chalfant or “Beat Street” (1984) by Harry Belafonte cause a breakdance wave in Germany and a short time later the general enthusiasm breaks down for graffiti. So also in Dortmund, Frankfurt and Berlin. The sprayers of the first generation tell.

When films like WILD STYLE (1982) by Charlie Ahearn, STYLE WARS (1984) by Henry Chalfant or BEAT STREET (1984) by Harry Belafonte were shown in Germany, a break dance wave broke out and a short time later the first big graffiti wave broke out. So also in Dortmund, Frankfurt and Berlin. For this episode, we met with first-generation sprays to learn how this wave continued into the late eighties and what influences played a big role in it. In Dortmund we met Marianne Brentzel, an author who published the first graffiti book in Germany in 1987 “Da Kukse Wa”. With pictures and texts from the Ruhr area in the early eighties.
