Biography / Rocco and his Brothers

A squad of four, Rocco and his brothers individually have been a part of the Berlin graffiti scene over the past 20 years. In 2016, the group, who’s members identities remain unknown, formed a collective to collaboratively work on autonomous creations of art and the annexation of public spaces, which developed into socio-political art campaigns and satirical work. Rocco and his brothers’ work can be found on their collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/10 in 2016.

In 2016, Rocco and his brothers gained international attention when they broke into a decommissioned subway tunnel and installed a fully furnished room. A year later they set up a Walk of Shame for Europe’s biggest publishing house Axel Springer, criticising their style of writing and abusing their journalistic power. With their art and installations the left-wing collective is looking to shed light on capitalistic-minded mechanisms and misanthropic circumstances and conditions that occur across the board whether its rising rents in inner-city neighbourhoods or horrendous working conditions and children’s work in South-East Asia.
