This strong anonymous group is associated with this pseudonym and uses graffiti art to create an urban art interventions. In 2011 they painted a controversial mural „Die Möglichkeit eines Lagers“ on the side of an abandoned freight depot. This mural artwork raised many discussions, as it was Jew deportation site. Their art differs from a conventional graffiti artwork. Their focus is on creating conceptual political art. They transmit a message that is not so usual for the “street art” being unpredictable, spontaneous, sassy, and critical by presenting the ugly truth in such a way. This being the reason for their huge media coverage every time they set a new artwork on trains or train racks.
