Inside the Mind of ALANIZ, Berlin’s Banksy

I find the comparison to Banksy in the title annoying given their very different styles but if you can get past that, Inside the Mind of ALANIZ, Berlin’s Banksy offers some fascinating insight into the motivation and creative process of the Berlin-based street artist. Whilst taking Vocativ on a tour of his art in Berlin, […]

Ohrwurm: Adel Tawil – Lieder

Lieder by Adel Tawil* should possibly come with a warning as it is essentially 32 Ohrwürme in one (if my Maths is right).  The English translation of the title is ‘Songs’ and the lyrics refer to other songs, e.g. the first line ‘Ich ging wie ein Ägypter’ – I walk like an Egyptian – is a […]
