As part of the measures decided by the federal and state governments to contain the Corona pandemic, the Dortmund U and the UZWEI will be closed from 02 November 2020.

"I WAS HERE" - who has not read this slogan on a public toilet or a house wall in the city? Whether intended for immortalization, self-dramatization or as a provocation, it often stands for a first attempt to communicate oneself to the world and the urban space. Not infrequently, it even marks the beginning of an artistic career.

Dortmund artists from the street and urban art scene show graffiti, painting, rap, photography and installations at the UZWEI in the Dortmunder U and give you an insight into their very personal "I WAS HERE" moment.
You also want to immortalize yourself? Then you get the chance to do so in the exhibition. Leave your own message to the world with us at UZWEI and show everyone: "YOU WERE HERE"!
