Battlebox “Autofreier StadTraum”

Am 21. September fand die vorläufig letzte Battlebox diesen Jahres statt, im Rahmen des "Autofreien StadTraums" auf dem Osterfeuerberger Ring.
Es war windig, es war regnerisch, aber es hat Spaß gemacht. Ich hatte zum ersten Mal in dieser Saison die Gelegenheit, mal den "Verantwortlichkeits-Trip" etwas loszulassen (durch starke Hilfe meiner Mitstreiter) und selber auch mal ein bißchen zu feiern.
Danke euch!

On the 21st september we had the last Battlebox of this year so far. It was windy, it was rainy, but we had some fun. I for the first time this season had the opportunity to let go of the "responsible-trip" a bit and celebrate a little, like others did all the time.

TSW Sketchbook ca. ‘91

A friend of mine gave me this PDF with scans he made from old black-and-white copies of sketches, not only by TSW / The Style Warriorz, but loads of others aswell. In some cases it's hard to tell who made the original sketch, since at that times, people used to make their own tag on these copies, before they were given way to the next guy.
A few names here are Scez / Zoe (the later Keno (R.I.P.)), Menace, Jore, Eton, Newton, Caras, D-Nize, Jase, B-Base, me, and then there's some stuff from other towns and UK aswell.
The quality is bad, I think it was one of his first tries to digitally archive stuff in the late 90s... (and of course, many of the copies have been bad quality already before that)

Battlebox

BATTLEBOX from Kenmo on Vimeo.

Battlebox, June 2013, Kirchweyhe / Germany
Making use of the 'left-over' box of the performance "Pandoras Box", I created this hip-hop battle-type event. The audience suggests the themes that the artists then have to paint to, within 10 or 15 minutes. To make it proper fun I also invited DJ Stickeltodd and MC Blowm for some adequate musical support!

The themes here are (in order of appearance):
1. "Four elements of Hip-Hop"
2. "Kleingartenverein" (garden plot association)
3. "Wochenendeinkauf" (weekend shopping)
4. "Fantasy"

Soundtrack: "Rauh und Ungepflegt", Blowmbeatz
This was the first try. We hope for more events like this in the near future! Book us!

“Weyhe ist bunt”

Another school yard got painted and "Weyhe is [a little more] colourful" now!
It was the pupils´idea to paint a train on the wall, and on it the graffiti. The slogan is meant as an anti-xenophobic, or pro-multicultural statement in town. I thought it was very appropriate to what we did as well.

Grinding off the Container

In order to spray this container with around a dozen of children and teenagers, we have to grind off the rust first. What a work in this frost out there!
