About the event
Dear alumni, dear friends,
Street art has become so popular that millions are paid at art auctions for works by artists like Banksy. Shepard Fairey, who designed the "Hope" campaign poster for former US President Barack Obama, has also achieved worldwide fame. Street art is social criticism and contemporary art that has made it into our everyday lives. It has broken down boundaries and established itself in the exclusive art world.
That is why we cordially invite you to start the year 2023 with an exclusive guided tour of the exhibition "Wonderwalls", which is dedicated to street art in all its facets, at NRW Forum Düsseldorf on 21 January 2023. More than 2,000 works of photography, graphic design as well as graffiti, sculptures, and designer toys merge in a spectacular staging.
We will meet at the Foyer in the NRW Forum, Ehrenhof 2, 40779 Düsseldorf, at 11.15 am, 15 min ahead of the tour to allow time for cloakroom and distribution of entrance tickets, so that we can start the tour on time.
Optionally: Afterwards, we would like to have lunch together in the old town of Düsseldorf to network and discuss our impressions of the exhibition.
Tip: If you would like to spend the entire day in Düsseldorf, you can stroll on your own along Königsallee after lunch. The famous boulevard is only a 10-minute walk from the old town.
Please register by Thursday, 19 January by completing the online registration form. We encourage you to sign-up early, as we allocate places on a first-come, first-served basis.
The guided tour is free of charge for members of the German Friends of LSE. The participation fee for non-members is €10, which we ask you to either pay by Paypal or provide us a SEPA direct debit mandate.
Please contact us if you have any questions. We are looking forward to seeing you at this event.
Manuel Geggus, Vice President
