Raubdruckerin

Raubdruckerin is an experimental printmaking project, that uses urban structures such as manhole covers, grids, technical objects and other surfaces in the urban landscape, to create unique graphical patterns on streetwear basics, fabrics and paper. Every piece is hand printed, mainly on-site in the public space, as a footprint of the city. Raubdruckerin is based in Berlin, but works regularly in other metropolis such as Amsterdam, Lisbon and Paris.

Berlin

Raub Druckerin means Pirate printers, summing up the public printing process they undertake. Printing in public spaces means that passers by become observers of the process and offers an alternative viewpoint to the mass production we see so much in fashion production nowadays.

The main focus is to explore the surfaces of cities, searching for overlooked, seemingly insignificant details on the pavement, which turn out to be true urban design. They reveal unobserved parts of cities, that are full of history, diversity and creativity.

Budapest

The process of converting a detail of the city into an image, displayed on somebody’s chest, can be considered as reversed street art. A part of the city is being extracted from its origin and brought to new life in a different context. By carrying the image around, people become part of the project themselves. To stimulate our perception regarding the relationship to our surrounding, refine everyday routines, as well as being sensitive to the beauty hidden in the unexpected, are main motivations of the project.
