Punk auf Indonesisch

9th January 2019

Eröffnung!

Im Rahmen der Gruppenausstellung PUNK – Raw Power, The Revolt Against Innocent zeigt die Photobastei die Ausstellung der Basler Fotografin Eleni Kougionis: Punk auf Indonesisch.

Die Fotografin Eleni Kougionis, *1988 wohnhaft in Basel, zeigt die Fotoreportage ihrer ersten Reise nach Indonesien aus dem Jahr 2015. Dort tauchte sie mit grosser Unterstützung heimischer Punks in die riesige und vielfältige Szene auf der Insel Java ein. Drei Jahre später begleitete sie ihre Freunde der Basler Hardcore Punk Band Heckler auf deren Süd­­ostasien Tournee, wo sie bekannte Menschen und Orte wieder traf. Daraus entstanden der Film «Still Wrecked – Heckler Southeast Asia Tour» in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Filmemacher Christian Taro und weitere Bilder der Ausstellung.

ESC Basel 2018

2nd March 2018

This is a big one. For myself and even for Basel.

The ESC are coming back! (after 7 long years)

I remember standing on the big ramps before my run with shaky legs and sweaty palms. I never really got far in these contests… but man, those were hands down the best days in the entire year.

Being involved in the reissue of the ESC is something really special and I’m more than stoked. Thanks Oli!

Teaser by Ahoimotion and myself. More to come. Stay posted here or follow Skateboardeurope on Facebook or/and Instagram.

Filming for First Love

4th February 2018

Four years ago today.

We filmed through two whole nights and it was beyond freezing. But still, we had a great time and the boys were killing it.

The 6 minute short turned out to be truly a matter of the heart. It was shown on lots of different festivals and even got lucky enough to win a price here and there. I‘m planning on uploading it in the (very) near future. Pinky promise.

Till then have another look at the trailer.

The Wild One’s tour celebrated the courage and spirit of women motorcyclists’, inspiring others to explore without boundaries. This July, The Women’s Moto Exhibit rode on motorcycles through the Alps; starting in Austria, moving through Switzerland and ending in Italy passing Germany and the Czech Republic.

Juampi Garcìa and myself accompanied the Wild Ones while they were riding through switzerland – here’s what they were up to!
