Their murals and graffiti can be seen all over the world, their visual languages are unmistakable. In short: Katja Bot (Paris/Germany), JuMu Monster (Berlin/Chile/Peru), Ursula Meyer (Ruhr/Argentina) and Giza one (Cologne/Greece) are among the important representatives of the urban art scene.
"Dear All" is the first exhibition of Pottporus with all-female lineup and presents recent works of the four artists. What they have in common is the formative influence of different cultural backgrounds on their art, what drives them, the desire to constantly experiment. Latin American muralismo meets German expressionism, hip-hop culture and shaman cult overlap in surreal visual worlds, can meets brush meets screen printing plate.
Curated by Ursula Meyer

URBAN DANCE BATTLE

Open air // pay as you wish
INTERNATIONAL BIRTHDAY BATTLE
The "International Summer Battle" is entering its fifth round as the "International Birthday Battle" on the occasion of PACT's 20th anniversary - and is once again bringing the international urban dance scene together on stage. Pottporus has invited twelve of the best urban dancers from its worldwide network to compete against each other to the beats of the celebrated battle DJ Shampoo.
In 1 on 1 battles, the dancers will show their skills in the urban styles of breaking, hip hop, krump, waacking, popping and experimental. Who competes against whom is decided by chance this year, because the classic categories have been abolished. As a further special for the PACT anniversary, this time the winners of the evening will not be chosen by a jury of experts, but by the audience: Which dancers can convince you with their styles and moves?
