The German duo HERAKUT is now in Hamburg where they just finished this haunting mural painted for Viva con Agua in occasion of “Unfamiliar” – Contemporary Culture Festival at the so-called Millerntor-Stadion that with the participation of Herakut and Clemens Behr, among others.
Titled ‘Some People Think Of Dreams As A Waste Of Time. We Have A Different Tradition.’ the new mural shows the image of a kid sitting on his father’s (or maybe grandfather’s) shoulders whilst he tries to catch soap bubbles made by the old man’s pipe. A beautiful reminder of the power of dreams.
The theme of this year’s art, music and cultural festival is “Unfamiliar” – the potential of perspective and will be complemented with a symposium highlighting the role of the arts in intercultural exchange running from 2 to 5 July 2015. Certainly an interesting event.
