On the 16th&17th September 2023 the vibrant city of Schweinfurt, Germany, became a canvas for artistic expression during the much-anticipated “Das Dreckige Dutzend” jam. Hosted in the heart of the city, this event has once again proven to be a landmark in the street art community. With nearly 3,000 visitors flocking to witness the spectacle, the jam was nothing short of a grand celebration of graffiti and street art. Over 50 renowned artists, including the likes of Loomit, Won/ABC, Inka, Fanta, Vince, Cario, Jase, Mirko Machine, Bates, and many more, graced the event with their presence and talent. The lineup was a blend of established names and emerging talents, ensuring a fresh and diverse range of styles and techniques on display.
The event was marked by an array of vibrant murals and intricate pieces, each telling its own unique story. Artists such as Force of Nature, Dreist, Mr. Oreo, Desur, and Brainpaint Circle showcased their distinctive styles, creating a visual feast for the attendees. The participation of groups like Dejoe, Speedy, Blok Shop, and Copsa added to the diverse artistic dialogue of the jam. The atmosphere was electric, yet incredibly relaxed, a testament to the community spirit that street art fosters. The weather played along perfectly, blessing us with sunshine and clear skies, making it ideal for both artists and visitors to enjoy the weekend to its fullest.
One of the highlights of the event was the collaborative spirit among the artists. It was a space where ideas were shared, styles were blended, and new friendships were formed. This camaraderie was palpable in the air, adding a warm and welcoming feel to the entire event.
