Jeder Traum Hat Seinen Weg was a pop-up exhibit at Projektraum Messing in Berlin on 22-23 September 2018. It featured 200+ graphic postcards and signs showcasing a collection of texts appropriated from found graffiti documented across Europe and beyond, from personal to political and everything in between.
Part of an active project exploring peripheral marks and traces on the streets, this concept aims to capture facets of life today through the prism of compulsive yet perennial acts of vandalism in an attempt to reflect on the manifestations of human experience and its potential implications on contemporary culture.
The texts were installed in a former-shop-turned-project space in the bohemian village of Rixdorf in Neukolln, where the idea began in 2011 after a chance encounter with its title etched on a nearby bridge. This pop-up exhibit marked the return of the project to the city after seven years of the still ongoing process.
Inspired by diverse encounters with urban spaces between 2011-2018, this particular series now contains words and messages in multiple languages including English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and Lithuanian.
