UN PRODUCTION OFFICE

For this special occasion artist Philip Wallisfurth also known as Señor Schnu did a live performance in front of the UN Production Office. Visitors could watch him create an outdoor piece on canvas. The work is titled “Size S”.

Using moss and spray cans, he explores the dialogue between different materials and techniques. Here he addresses the question of sustainability in the field of urban art, as in the first chapter We need to talk of the exhibition TALKING…& OTHER BANANA SKINS.

URBAN NATION invited him back in 2020 to design the then façade of the museum together with Dave The Chimp, Mina, Humble Writerz and Matt Jones.

Meanwhile the “Apropos!” express tours through the museum were available for all vistors. Every 30 minutes tourguides showed and explained the artworks and the concept of “TALKING… & OTHER BANANA SKINS“. Each of the 20-minute-express-tours with focus on selected topics and artworks were held in in German and English.
