Urban Discipline 2001

Graffiti-Art Ausstellung in der Postsortierhalle am Stephansplatz, Hamburg

In summer 2001, the Urban Discipline 2001 was set for the second time. To gain more space, a new location had been selected and the compound of the team of artists was not going to be the same. At the old post office building at Hamburg`s Stephansplatz, more than 1000 m² were made available to show the works of 22 international artists.

Ergänzend zu den beeindruckenden Werken der Graffitikünstler konnte getting-up die bekannte Szenephotographin Martha Cooper überzeugen, ihre legendären 80`er Jahre Photos aus den Anfängen der Hip-Hop und Graffitikultur zu zeigen. Die teilweise unveröffentlichten Aufnahmen, die durch authentische Soundcollagen ergänzt wurden, waren ein Highlight der Ausstellung.

In addition to the stunning works, getting-up was able to convince the well-known photographer Martha Copper to show her legendary pictures from the very beginnings of Hip-Hop and Graffiti culture. Some of the photos had never been on display before and combined with authentic sound collages surely became one of the exhibition`s highlights. More than 100 canvases up to 3.5 m x 3.5 m fascinated the many vistors so much that some even came to see the exhibition more than once.

For that reason also, a catalogue was produced that was sold out in no time.
