SiB.edit: Juli, 2007-06-22

Yesterday evening I visited the opening of Backjumps – The Live Issues #3 at Kunstraum/Bethanien in Kreuzberg (check the program for the offered workshops, talks, presentations, citywalks and parties coming along with that huge biyearly street art event, unfortunately only in German) and guess who I met: schnieke Mitteschnitte Juli!

She was presenting her book on street art and spontaneously agreed to be my guest-editor on SiB.edit. So please enjoy following her through the (street&fine) art crowd:

Juli says:
Well what should I say: I like New Rave, he likes New Rave. I am in love with his silver leggings. And yes boy, drink some water as long as you can. In some years it will be a luxury item just like your great leggings. The painting on the wall is by ASH.

Juli says:
I dig the sailor look that this yankee (New York) girl is wearing. Forget stars and stripes – her combination of dots and stars is just beautiful. The background is by the Danish group HuskMitNavn, which means “Remember My Name”.

Juli says:
Well Johann, I think even if you would be stuck in a rubbish bag, you would still look good. With this great patchwork leather jacket you make a stunning appearance. What I like most about this outfit is the mix of styles: eco-touched leather shoes, shiny baggy pants, a striped white-collar-worker shirt, a wooden bracelet and the leather jacket as the highlight.

Juli says:
This guy doesn’t just look like a country singer – he is a country singer. So I can only say congratulations for the authentic appearance. His horse is in Canada, his guitar in Berlin. I am looking forward to the song, you promised to sing the next time we will meet. In the background is a living sculpture that was representing war – scary.

Juli says:
Her bag looks like one of those plastic bags from a Turkish vegetable shop. But no, it’s a NYLON bag from a Turkish vegetable shop. Inside is not a cucumber, but a “Süddeutsche” newspaper. Her jeans are all ripped up in the back (what you can’t see) and they fit nicely with the top. The red shoes are in complementary color with the bag. Talking in germlish I would call this a “round” outfit. Ps. thanks for ending the era of skinny jeans and thanks to Paris based artist SKKI for the great leopard background.

Juli says:
I know this guy. His name is Matthias but he is more known as Flying Fortress. He was the first one and he will be the last one with a mustache. And that’s good, because it suits him.
