Silent Auction for Neuperlach Zoo Chapter 2

To help the Munich Street Artists who created the Mingaland installation at the Odeonsplatz window, we are having a 7 day silent auction of the artwork hanging in the installation- Neuperlach Zoo Chapter two – Mingaland Cash Machine.

Zwist, Kult, Pyser,DerBlauenvogel and ADK created the artwork shown below on A1 posters of a cash machine.  Now they would like to sell the artwork so they can get back on the street creating street art for the Neuperlach Zoo Chapter 3.

The work will be in the window at Odeonsplatz for another week so go take a peek and pick a piece you would like to keep.  I have my heart set on this one:

Here is what the full installation looks like (men not included):

The Way to Neuperlach Zoo

On June 19, 2016 the Neuperlach Zoo opens to the public and Munich Artists wants to make sure you make it down to Quiddestr 45 for a street art photo safari.  To make sure you don’t get lost in the jungle of 8 story high rises, we documented how you get from the Subway to the Zoo (This takes about nine minutes from subway to the Neuperlach zoo.)  Please add the ten minute walk to your travel time so you don’t miss the festivities.

DIRECTIONS

Wherever you are in Munich, you will find your way to the Subway Line U5/U8 heading towards Neuperlach Sued and get off at Quiddestrasse.

Below is what you will see when you are about to leave the subway.  If you go Left, you will see street art by the same artists but not the zoo.  

 

If you go left, you will see this which is a different street art mural created by Der blaue Vogel

 

If you get there a bit early, I encourage you to go left and see this wall mural that takes up the whole underpass before turning around and heading in the other direction.

To get to quidesstr 45, I would like you to turn right when you get off the subway.  This is what it will look like except those people will not be there.

Then, you will walk until you see this.

Don’t fret.  Turn to your left and walk up these stairs.

Walk straight until you reach the end of the playground and then turn right and head in the direction of the Joey’s pizza (If it is still a pizza place.)

Keep walking straight but not into a pole.

When you reach these red and white poles, veer to your left and walk on the lovely path through all those big 8 story buildings.  This space reminds me of Berlin or part of Singapore so if you have never been to East Berlin or Singapore, you can sort of feel the vibe of all those communist styled block apartment buildings as you walk to the Neuperlach zoo.

Follow the well maintained path until you see this. This is the Neuperlach zoo waiting for you to come and enjoy a photo safari.  Please do not add any animals when you go. The Zoo is a curated project sponsored by the city of Munich and we want you to respect the work of the artists who have donated their time and artistic skills to making this fab street art project in Neuperlach.

I have it on good authority that the theme song for the zoo is in the making so, at the zoo opening, you may hear a rap song dedicated to the zoo….lets keep our finger’s crossed that the Musician is able to debut the song in time.  I promise to share the song and the artist’s name on the website once the song is published.

Pssst…I’ve heard there may be a  Neuperlach Zoo rap song.  

 

NOTE:  This is worth seeing but plan your day accordingly if you are coming on a day other than June 19th.  Bring a thermos of your favourite drink, some lunch and a blanket so you can enjoy a wild adventure in Mingaland.

Nueperlach Zoo Opens June 2016

In June 2016, the Neuperlach Zoo will be opening at Quiddestr. 45, Neuperlach, Munich Germany.

According to Kult, one of the organisers, there will be animals of all kinds appearing around every corner of the complex.  Animals and nature will be taking back what is rightfully theirs and converting the aging shopping centre into a little slice of the Wild Kingdom.
Here are a few detail photos from the project:

The Neuperlach Zoo Story Book

The Neuperlach Zoo is an organised street art project supported by the city of Munich and created by Munich Street Artists. If you would like to participate in populating the zoo, please connect with Kult who is one of the zookeepers. Because the building is scheduled to be demolished, Munich Artists offered to create a website called the Neuperlach Zoo to house all the artsy creatures online.

Because we want lots of people to go see the zoo, we thought it would be cool if we had some kind of zoo theme song.  Anyone up for creating a theme song or maybe a zoo dance?

I’m sure all your efforts will make the party in June a bit more wild.

More photographs of the artwork will be shared once the projects goes “live.”  I would love to have some video to add to the website so if anyone wants to go take an artsy video of the street art crew painting their creatures, that would be cool.

Please note: This project is curated so don’t go “adding” creatures unless you’ve talked to Kult.  If you don’t know Kult, you can send a message to me and I will make an introduction but only if you are a rare bird worthy to be showcased in this exotic zoo.  

Pests will be exterminated/painted over.

If you attend our 500 artists event on April23rd, you can have a sneak preview at some of the artwork going up on the walls but, we ask you to please honor the artist’s request to keep the zoo offline until June 2016.
