From September 26th to 30th 2011 several members of GRL Germany had the chance to be part of this years International Urban Art Festival “Sexto Asalto“!
Based in the City of Zaragoza in central Spain, graffiti artists from all over Europe and Spain were invited to do walls in the old-town. Graffiti Research Lab Germany was represented with a talk, two workshops (Creative Code and GML) a hand full of mushroom Throwies, the launch of bombIR 2.0 and of course a night out with blitzTag. Here some video from a truly inspiring, busy and VERY sunny week!

yo to the yoes…
we’ve been seeing your Google searches, all impatient and stuff, wondering about the guerilla projections this Friday… well, here it is…
Our First Wall, at Karl-Marx Stasse and Weichselstrasse… we will be there by 11pm at the latest!
and the route to the 2nd (and possibly 3rd) walls…
As always, find us on out Twitter for updates…
We’ve just returned, well tanned (well, burnt in one case), from Vigo, Spain, where we were fortunate enough to be invited to do two installations of blitzTag and LED Throwies at the Vigo Transforma Festival.
dear all y’all,
thanks again to everyone who came out to support our action last Friday, for the launch of blitzTag & Light Rider !! It was a huge success.
and apologies to anyone who missed us at Hermannplatz.
FYI, GRL Germany will be featured on the weekly cultural magazine Stilbruch.
This Thursday 23.06, 22:15 on RBB. http://www.rbb-online.de/stilbruch/index.html
The segment follows us on our first action with Light Rider. Join us for our first ever TV appearance!
This friday, we will be meeting again at 11pm at the North East corner of Karl-Marx Stasse & Reuterstrasse (see attached picture), projecting onto the white wall on the edge of the gas station,
and then continuing down Karl-Marx Strasse.

Again, please attempt to stay up to date via the GRL Germany Twitter (@grlgermany).

Hermannplatz, SW Corner, Friday June 17th, 11pm ++
Our bike has arrived, and we’ve put it together…. work starts next week on modding.
Who wants to start a vegan ice cream delivery service !?!
Hot on the tail of our LED Throwie action at Kottbusser Tor, and because of the roughly 18,000,000 comments on Heise.de about what we were going to do about the batteries, we built a Throwie Removal Unit (Instructable >> here < <)… an extension painters pole with a large metal plate… and took ’em all down… at least, the 66 out of 350+ that were still there (?!??!??! … our guess is pigeons blinging out their nests… but if anyone has other ideas or facts, we’re interested).
yeah yeah… you’ve probably already seen it here and/or here … but we thought we’d show some more !!!
big up’s to Street Lab, SID, the rest of the GRL Germany crew, all our workshop participants, and of course all the little kids that straight up mobbed us and helped us put up 350+ throwies !!
‘sup kids ?!?
Video still under production, but here are some quick shots from last Friday’s action.
Word ’em Up to Street Lab, Prinzessinen Garten, Licht Piraten, and all the writers and public who came out and DIDN’t draw a penis.
