This page is a tribute to the artists who worked in our city, and they were perhaps happy about my documentations. But they did not feel comfortable with my comments in German: logically, who of us understands what a friend wants to express in his own, for us a foreign language?
This page is also intended to draw the attention of all people who are interested in art and do not understand German to this extraordinary project in our city!
The project was launched by the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum - funded by BASF SE - in 2018 as street art and is intended to enrich art in Ludwigshafen's public space with extraordinary façade paintings. Invited to these projects are internationally successful artists, but also regional and national greats of this scene, who present their oversized works on bare house walls and thus manifest the art itself in a previously unknown form in Ludwigshafen.
MURALU is an artificial word composed of the English word 'mural' and the license plate of Ludwigshafen 'LU'.
A total of ten such works are planned, which will make an important contribution in 2022 as part of an exhibition of the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum on the importance of street art in the 20th and 21st centuries.
