For decades, the Youth Center has been one of the Frankfurt focal points, if not the birthplaces of local graffiti. Pretty much everyone from the Rhine-Main region, who is enthusiastic about graffiti, has ever painted something here. Unfortunately, the terrain is still one of only a few areas here in the room, can be sprayed on the legal and free. But then the opportunity is extensively used and here arise in changing intervals the greatest works of art. There must already be innumerable layers of creative masterpieces under each wall. This year, too, something beautiful has sprung up.
ARTICLES AND PHOTO GALLERYS:
The Character Jam has a large facade plaster and a retread. Participating artists from all over the region come by, but also travel from further afield or from abroad. A great concern of the event and the youth house here is the mediation of this artistic activity to the youth. In any case, the Youth House has written the mediation of hip-hop culture as a whole in the mission agenda.
