GRLG joined in to support the protest against the local “Thor Steinar” store in Weißensee, selling ugly nazi wear. We set up blitzag to write on a decent wall close to the store. A lot of people were tagging, some of them very talented writers. Thanks to all who joined in. Additional infos regarding the brand “Thor Steinar” on wikipedia. German language infos are available here.
Blitztag at the Comic Invasion festival was a whole lot of fun. The wall was great, the people too.
Our next blitztag and light rider event will be this friday in weissensee and got the title “Your tag against nazi lifestyle” (“Dein Graffiti gegen rechten Lifestyle“, website in german). Join in if you hate nazi wear as much as we do.
We are happy to announce that GRLG will present blizTag at this years Comic Invasion at .HBC, Berlin near Alexanderplatz!
A great white wall right at the location is waiting to be tagged on with beautyful light-based graffiti by comic artists, visitors, passerbys, … and you!
