Graffiti art in the forchheim district: young spruhers want

Mostly young people paint concrete walls in colorful colors. Graffiti has become the symbol of an urban cityscape all over the world. For a long time now, graffiti has not just been sprayed on railroad underpasses, but has become sought-after art – even in the rural district of forchheim.

As in ebermannstadt, where in the summer of 2017 sprinters transformed the ramstertal bridge into a crude gesamtkunstwerk (gesamtkunstwork). Manuel dietsch from unterleinleiter organized the event. The 38-year-old designer also spared a silo near gosberg with his graffiti art. Dietsch is convinced that other places in the region could be upgraded by the coarse paintings. He thinks: if there were public graffiti walls, this would also curb illegal spraying.

The ones no one sees: bamberg’s homeless

"The worst were the nights, the icy nights, when I walked the streets looking for a place to sleep", reports toni weib (name changed by the editors). Sometimes the man from bamberg stayed with acquaintances – for a short time. At times, however, all doors remained closed to him. Agonizingly slowly the time passed after midnight, after the passers-by disappeared – sometime also the last night owls. "I walked and walked through the cold, more asleep than awake, until the forces made me fall in love." Then toni nodded off in a doorway or a public toilet. "I leaned against a wall and closed my eyes until I picked myself up again."

Toni W.A schoolboy, a high school graduate, a student of pedagogy, a public service employee, then, after suffering from cancer, unemployed and, some time later, homeless. "Everything became too much. I couldn't cope anymore, I let things slide", says the 50-year-old. Alcohol helped to suppress for a few moments, but only made toni's problems worse. "So I crashed", says the bamberger. For almost a year he had no permanent place to stay, but used the "warmestube" of "people in need", to shower, eat and talk to others, while he otherwise remained silent, preferring to stay alone. Finally, toni knew that now he also belonged to those who overlook many wealthy burghers.

However, the accusations, including those against the former head of media-markt germany, michael rook, are well known: rook, who was born in 1964, and a former regional manager of the electronics retailer are alleged to have been bribed for years by a businessman who is also on trial – around five million euros are said to have been paid in the process.

The public prosecutor’s office accuses the media-markt managers of having lent the owner of a marketing agency exclusive contracts for his companies in exchange for money, although the competition had submitted better offers. The bribe money had flowed between july 2005 and october 2011. According to the public prosecutor’s office, rook and the regional manager used employees of the marketer as external sales staff for DSL contracts in media markt stores. The charge is commercial and gang-related bribery or commercial bribery.

How thorsten glauber tried to convince the farmers in iphofen

They came very early. Even before the organizers of the "land schafft verbindung" association to receive their farmers in an orderly fashion, the first 300 tractors rolled into iphofen. Even farmers from central and upper franconia had come. And consumers who, out of sympathy with the farmers, had taken their own small agricultural vehicles out of the garage.

The otherwise tranquil town in the district of kitzingen turned into a center of farmers' protests on sunday from 4 p.M. Onward. Tractors rolled through the residential area, parked in field and meadow paths. Many approach roads were dense. From iphofen, all you could see were flashing tractors on the B8. The police had their work cut out for them.
