Exhibition Project Recap: Lak Aan Braak @ KUS

Revisiting my trip to Heerlen, I would like to share my biking experience in the hilly parts of the Netherlands. Yes, this post (along with many others) can be considered long overdue, but the story will remain the same either way. I had the opportunity of meeting artist/curator Jens Besser, whom as you may or may not know has been involved in numerous projects throughout Europe. During my visit, I was able to see the "Urban Script Continues 2011 - Lak Aan Braak," a wallpainting project curated by Robert Kaltenhäuser and Jens Besser in cooperation with kuS. The project consisted of mural paintings scattered throughout the town and an that showcased the progress, communication and legal process, press and/or articles, scheduling and photographs of finished murals pieces. After going through various stages of development, the Heerlen project was realized with the participation (and collaboration) of artists including Bue (Belgium), ECB Grapic (Germany), Gigo (Germany), Graphic Surgery (the Netherlands), Lastplak Collective (the Netherlands), Maen Marek (Germany), Resto (Belgium), Roa (Belgium), Skount SR (the Netherlands), Vagabundos (Belgium), El Neoray (Belgium), and Marie van Collenhoven (the Netherlands).

The exhibition ended June 30th, however the murals remained untouched and are still viewable. I managed to obtain images from Jens' flickr, UrbanScript flickr as well as from kuS's website. Many thanks and credits for photography goes to both respectable parties. Also, check out the artists at work in this video below.
