Candidplatz – Munich Street Art

Organized by MUCA and supported by the city of Munich, streets artists created artwork on the pillars of the bridge spanning over the Candidplatz Ubahn stop.  The project is part of an effort to beautify the Untergiesing area and bring Local and international street artists together on the walls and public spaces of Munich, Germany.  The title of the project is “Building Bridges” and is part of the MUCA on tour project.  If you would like to read more about their project, you can go here.

The artists with artwork at Candidplatz are:



Kelbebande Berlin


It is worth taking a bike ride down the Isar to Candidplatz or hopping on the U1 subway and getting off at the Candidplatz stop.

Here is a map to show you where you will be going…

Wine Helps Creativity Flow

Welcome to the second day of this week.  Here is some international, local and Munich artists news for you:

  • This is why artists get such brilliant ideas at parties.  Wine helps creativity flow
  • You will have plenty of opportunities this week to test this theory about wine when you visit the art studios and drink the wine which will be flowing all over Munich.  If you would like to attend a traditional vernissage, there is an opening at the Pasinger Fabrik starting on July 10th for a group of artists.
  • On July 25, 2014, Munich Artists will begin participating in the global initiative Free Art Friday. This is a regular art event where artists leave artwork around the city for people to find. The artwork will be left only in commercial areas of town where people will be able to find the art.   We will load photos of the artwork that artists have placed around the city for you to find and each art piece will be labeled with the name of the artist and their website on a little Munich artists tag.
  • Starting on July 8, 2014 we have a 30 day drawing challenge happening.  This is a drawing, not sketching challenge which means you can have a little help from  a projector, a light box, photoshop or whatever device you find helpful when making a drawing.  There are no rules on size or format. All that is required is that you make some art each day for the next thirty days.  We will be posting the topic to sketch each morning and artists are encouraged to share their work with us the next day.  Do on Day 1 I will give the topic.  Day 2 You will see a gallery of images from day 1 and the topic for day 2.



Internet Art and the BCA Munich Newsletter are not the Same Thing

BCA Munich Artists Emmy HorstkampI know. Munich artists and our newsletter are both located on the internet but both would not be considered internet art… yet.

What would be considered internet art?

Internet art depends on the internet for its existence. If an art piece can exist outside of the internet it isn’t internet art.  Artists who create internet art can create art pieces using domains and then art collectors can own the domains which form the art piece if they are for sale.   The main point to remember is that internet art pieces are created using the internet and will not exists offline.

Would you like to see examples of internet art? Check out these website hosting what would be considered internet art.




If you want to see more digital art, you can go through this directory and see what artists are creating on the world wide web.

BCA Munich’s Monday Newsletter – Artwork is Like a Snowflake….

[easymedia-gallery med=”1587″ filter=”1″]

BCA Munich has been busy meeting artists and getting ready for the bazaar on November 16th.  We are trying to figure out how to mingle artwork from different artists on a table without looking like a rummage sale.  The artwork coming through my door has been a surprise.  Many Munich artists work with large formats and I asked for small pieces for this show and they complied.  I love seeing artists experimenting and having fun. I hope you will stop by and say hello to the artists who will be coming to meet people next saturday.

Each week I write a newsletter for you which you might find interesting to read.  Next week the newsletter will be in German and English (German version will be one week behind in content from the English).  Why?  Because a wonderful artist, Ulli Schmeling (work shown above) volunteered to translate. I’m happy to have such a talented artist helping us out.  We need it.
