In the drizzling and quiet night from Thursday the 11th to Friday the 12th of December 2014 the Streetart Murals by BLU (our older Posts), located at the “Curvybrache” at Curvystr. in Berlin Kreuzberg (you could also see it from the Oberbaumbridge), got erased. Covered completly with black paint.

There was long fight about the area in the Curvystr. infront of the BLU artworks. It was the last access point for the Berliners to the Spree (the only riverside in the city of Berlin) and the Streetart Giants together with masses of Graffiti made the location even more popular. This area got bought by an Jewisch investor, Mr. Artur Suesskind. “Favellas of Berlin” was the new name for an Occupy Camp made out of tents and little self build houses.

The fight on sight was lost.
