“There are millions of tags in Berlin. They can be found every hundred meters somewhat like noise. Always there, like a disturbance with unspecified frequency, quality and origin.”
Rauschen takes the reader on a stroll through Berlin, stopping at tags and places which stand out from the perpetual flow of tags you go on with as you walk the city. Emmett Edelstein picked out his personal selection of interesting writers and places in which their work appear. His unique photographs capture tags on walls, doors, shutters, in backyards, hallways, etc. both in the streets and in abandoned places of the city.
You can find CLINT176 tags, who seems to develop new ways of writing it from tag to tag, MI.K.DO with his drawings who penetrates certain parts of Berlins center since years, BAMBOO with his down to the letter reduced writings and TECHR’s fast and dynamic handstyles. Skimming through this publication you could continue this list endlessly.
Emmett chose writers who dare to go own ways and develop an individual style whether through technique, handwriting or the tool they use. Just like in his first issue Der Edelstein – Wand selected writers wrote down their thoughts, stories and messages on the topic of Rauschen.
