Urban Art 3 // the documentary
Urban Art from Hauts-de-France, Voivodeship Silesie and North Rhine-Westphalia
Pottporus e.V. brought together urban artists from the three regions of the Regional Weimar Triangle. Hip Hop from Zabrze meets rap from Dorsten, stencil art from Katowice meets graffiti from Lille...
Due to Corona, the artists only met once in 2020 and everything was done via internet. So we have a documentary about unique artists from these three countries living and working in regions with a similar history. Dancers, musicians, graffiti and drawing artists –a documentation of where their inspiration comes from, what role the industrial heritage plays for them and what keeps them doing their work and maintaining their artistic attitudes.
The project also produced the common rap track "Charbonner" (slave"), that was produced together with the participation of rappers from Voivodeship Silesia, Hauts-de-France and North Rhine-Westphalia and an accordion orchestra as reference to the traditional coalminers culture.
