The photos for this project originated from the traces found on the Kampnagel walls, traces such as the passage of the time, the human intervention, the atmospheric agents. Decontextualized and reworked as graphic signs, these traces transform each tattooed body in a unique art piece and make it part of a collective and living archive preserving the memory of the Kampnagel venue.

As part of the tattoo convention INK ABOUT IT! visitors have the opportunity to view the images together with the artist Valentina Medda, learn about their context and choose a motif with which they would like to get their piece of Kampnagel live on site under the skin.

For those who would like to discuss possible motifs, desires and concerns with the artist in advance of the convention, the artist is offering some time slots for 1:1 conversations on Thursday, 10/06/2022. These can be arranged personally at: vmedda[at]gmail.com

Under the heading PUBLICUMSSANIERUNG we gather various artists who support our audience in becoming who they want to be: Geraldine Schabraque offers chic hairstyles, makes the eyes of the audience shine with her brow art and pampers the underarm hair with fresh colors; visitors can upgrade their clothes with stylish Kampnagel prints and the nail studio ensures that the polish will not be off for a long time.
