The six people behind Berlin’s KLUB7 art collective have adopted chalk as their medium of choice. As part of collaborative jam sessions they invite children and adults to join forces in making graffiti an accepted form of public art. At the Pictoplasma festival they transformed an entire gas station with nothing but chalk. For the third part of our interview series, we asked K7’s Ingo Albrecht to explain their unique take on public art.
What is your definition of urban art?
To us, urban art involves bringing outdoor landscapes to life.
We really enjoy a less sophisticated approach to public spatial interventions. At the same time, we also work with straight-laced studying materials, spaces and architectural conditions to devise a precise visual vocabulary for interactions with diverse environments, followed by the artistic performance.
If you could wake up as your favorite character one day – which would it be?
Mickey Mouse! Because everybody loves Mickey.
