Inside Rockenberg — Art in a Youth Prison

DRAW A LINE curated a rather uncommon art project inside prison walls last year. Roids (London), Horfèe & Ken Sortais (Paris), SatOne (Munich), Score & Fence (Berlin) were invited to paint the inner walls of JVA Rockenberg together with the inmates. The film features footage of participating artists, inmates and the prison director. We invite you to find out more about the project and the challenges we all had to face. The main idea behind this project was that the young inmates should get a chance to understand that people who live outside the prison walls have goals, that the inmates could actually experience how they work and learn directly from the artists about their view on life. During the week meaningful and inspiring conversations between the artists and the inmates took place. See more images after jump.

The Burning of Kingston | Video

Earlier this month, Mass Appeal teamed up with Red Bull to host The Burning of Kingston, a competition between some of graffiti’s most masterful when it comes to the “burner.” The competition’s participants included “Team Terrible” (Doc TC-5, T-Kid, Dero, and Dmote) and “the Spice Boys” (Ces, Bio, Doves, and Ribs). Despite the falling rain, the artists showed up to show and prove. Delivering an array of styles, letterforms, caricatures, and more, the artists truly made the first inaugural event a time to remember. Hit the video player up top to join Mass Appeal’s Sacha Jenkins for a little history lesson and to watch the battle unfold. Did “Team Terrible “come out on top or did “Spice Boys” come with the fuego? Supprted by MONTANA-CANS, and the Kingston Trolley Museum of New York. More images here The Burning of Kingston | Video

Grassroots Project…

Grassroots_Project

This wall is part of grassroots project by Guido van Helton, Stefan Oli and filmmaker Ari Rannveigarson to paint and document the placement of street art in Greenland, a community previously untouched by the Art form on this scale. ‘Poo?ojorteq’ the hunter was painted from a photograph of him in the remote East Greenland settlement of Ammassalik in 1906. This wall was painted on Blok 5 of the controversial housing Bloks in Nuuk, built in the 1950′s in an attempt by the Danish government to rapidly modernise Greenlandic society and its Inuit population. Through the closing down of social services in the remote settlements a proud hunter gathering society was essentially forcibly moved into these urban Blok’s to work industrial jobs in the city. This rapid change from traditional cultural practices over 1 generation resulted in high rates of suicide, alcoholism, murder and many other social problems. Many of the Bloks are now in so far need of repair with problems with mould and poisonous building materials. The painting of these walls although just a face value seemed to re-raise what seemed like an endless discussion on the living conditions and maintenance of these houses. See more after the jump..
