In some streets, greater poets may roam than others. But, all places have poems written in the friendly air of neighbourhoods. These poems can be fragile like bubbles, pleases and bursts within a little fly.

The artists of BUBBLES – বুদবুদ explore inner and outer spaces, connecting with Die Diele’s neighbourhood following the words red, restrictions, light, raw, cheap, weird, nightlife, dangerous, drugs, trafficking, liquor and coffee. Words that describe any place, anywhere in the world.

The works are produced far away from the corner of Militär-/Langstrasse, but channel the essences of dangerous restrictions, wild dances, raw coffee, cold smoke, cheap red chemicals, light drugs, tiger roars, wired nights, dried grass, liquid neighbourhood. Dancing over the world, in beautiful fragility.
