“Check your Privilege”: a new mural by the Low Bros

The Urban Spree Artist Wall is a highly visible wall in Berlin, deploying its painted surface of 120sqm (15 x 8 meters) opposite Warschauer Str.

As is usually the case with most exhibitions, the artists paint the first piece of their show on this wall, resulting in a massive statement work for their indoor exhibition.

“Check Your Privilege” is the 3rd mural painted by the Low Bros at Urban Spree and is perhaps their most significant outdoor work to date as it emphasizes strong cultural and societal points, further developed in their solo show “CON.TXT’ (on display until September 6th, 2020).

In the words of Anna Ptasinska: « With the #BlackLivesMatters movement sweeping the global community, it is now, more than ever, that white people need to acknowledge their responsibility to dismantle oppressive, racist systems. Influenced by the book ‘Exit Racism’ by Tupoka Ogette & Robin DiAngelo’s ‘White Fragility,’ Low Bros have partnered with IDB (Institut für diskriminierungsfreie Bildung), Josephine Apraku and Jule Bönkost for this exhibition. As an educational starting point, this exhibition aims to amplify and continue the conversation surrounding white privilege and asks questions of how it can be better utilized in institutions, as well as private & public spaces. While the search for answers is ongoing, the artworks aim is to highlight the problems of unchecked whiteness, especially when it is being recognized as a default perspective in society. By debunking the concept of privileges and problems, the context of this exhibition aims to engage whiteness as an ally to the BIPOC community.”



LOW BROS: CON.TXT

The Hamburg-based duo LOW BROS (formerly based in Berlin) is no stranger to Urban Spree, having painted the Wall two times and having been regular guests here.

However, “CON.TEXT” is their first solo show with the Gallery. The starting point of the exhibition is to study the white privilege situation enjoyed in the US (and elsewhere) and – again – highlighted by the death of George Floyd, which triggered a worldwide massive awareness and protests.

About the artists:

Low Bros are a German post-graffiti artist duo made up of brothers Christoph (b.1984) and Florin Schmidt (b.1982).

Low Bros complete the last mural of 2016

Berlin-based artist duo Low Bros just completed a mural at Urban Spree in December 2016. This Urban Spree Artist Wall is the last of the year and will stay facing Warschauer Str. until spring 2017.

The brothers from Hamburg painted their iconic wolves, a recurrent motive of the duo throughout the past year, which gently catches the pale nordic winter light.

A video of the complete work-in-progress will be released soon by the London-based Spraying Bricks project.

Celebration of the amazing mural by Low Bros / The Weird

Once again the biggest wall at Urban Spree has been regraffitied. This time by the gifted Low Bros from The Weird crew.

All eyes on Brazil during the World Championship? Low Bros offer another perspective where Jaguars, favelas, Jungle and stadium meet in an amazing colorful maelstrom.

Do use the opportunity to tell Flo from LOW BROS to make a wish because we are also going to celebrate his birthday!

The opening will be acoustically supported by Efalive of the Jazoburbs / Editude Pictures, additionally the best Couscous der Welt will satisfy any hunger.

The setting will be in our back garden. Our men have made a great effort in sweat to build this garden… The Low Bros mural Opening will be the first occasion to enjoy the new garden!

June 2014: Low Bros

The Summer Wall Edition of the Urban Spree Artists’ Wall saw the super gifted Hamburg and Berlin based LOW BROS duo (The Weird Crew) striking hard at Urban Spree with a crazy Brazil-inspired mural that already attracted a lot of attention and respect.

Low Bros - Urban Spree

The two brothers deliver on the wall a multi-faceted vision of Brazil and the WM where the mythic Maracana stadium and the city of Rio itself are being surrounded by jaguars, wildlife, favelas, and where the vibrant brazilian spirit is diverse and united.
