Tape Art Around the World: USA
Tape Art Around the World – USA 2019 In may 2019 we had the chance to come to the United States of America, showing and teaching the art of taping in New York City and Washington D.C. In addition to workshops at two German schools and a public high school we had the chance to performe live at the open house of the German Embassy in Washington D.C. and at a block party in Brooklyn, NYC. We met a lot of inspiring personalities and enjoyed bringing tape art closer to the people! We are looking forward to come back! THANK YOU to: German Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Tape Art Around the World: Cuba
We started the new year with a „Tape Art Around The World“ Project in Cuba – in cooperation with the German Embassy in Havana and the Fábrica de Arte Cubana. At the Fábrica we taped three containers of the facade with a combination of a woven „TapeThat“ typographic style and colourful abstract 3D line-art. Inside the Fábrica we created cracking walls revealing colourful areas with different styles of Tape Art. At the german embassy in Havana we created an artwork as a homage to Alexander von Humboldt in a combination of a bust-style portrait and an abstract floral background in memory of his researches in nature. At the residency of the german ambassador we created an abstract artwork made out of vertical lines playing with perspective and illusion.
Tape That at MT Masking Tape Factory Tour Vol. 7 | JAPAN
After a long Trip and our arrival in Osaka we went to the hometown of MT Masking Tapes, Kurashiki in Japan. It was the first time we got some cool washi tape in our hands, which was manufactured only for this project and cut in our prefered sizes – Big!. It was also the first time that the tradition based family business invited external artists to create an artwork. The first installation is called “Matter Of Perspective”. As we usually work in bigger rooms, we simply extended the dimensions of this little shack only by geometric shapes. The geometric landscape aligns perfectly with a vanishing point which we simulated to be far behind the outer wall of the shack. The inner walls, windows and corrugated metal roofs distort the shapes again, so the real artwork can only be seen by taking a photo from a marked spot in the room. The second part of the project is a good old mural on one of the old factory walls. However with a size of 15 x 7m it’s one of the largest we’ve created so far in a very limited time frame … with a lot of rain … outside. Yes it was fun! The picture is our modern version of a traditional japanese geisha, a women educated in all sorts of fine arts usually engaged in the high society to entertain. Here our geisha is a trained in tape artist designing her own Kimono right on the spot. Thanks to everyone who supported us with this project.

Carbon Tape Art | Audi | by Tape That
In june 2018 we designed an artwork for Audi. Inspired by the overlapping carbon-structure we created an artwork as a surrounding for a photoshooting-set. To create a third dimesion we used a new technique and stretched rubber bands through the air. We combined the parallel rubber band pattern with a tape-hatching on the wall and floor. It was a pleasure to work with Thomas Motta and his team. Together we created a beautiful mix between urban art and car-photography.
Tape Art Around the World: Guatemala
Earlier this year we had the chance to visit Guatemala to show and teach people what they can do with adhesive tape. We had an amazing time, giving workshops exploring a new culture and taping a mural at the German school. Thanks to the German embassy in Guatemala and the Colegio Alemán de Guatemala and everyone who was involved in the project.
Tape That @ Berlin Mural Fest 2018
More that 100 Graffiti- and Streetartists from all over the world came to Berlin this year, to participate in the Berlin Mural Fest. The "Dixons" organised this huge event to create an open-air-gallery of murals in Berlin. We were happy to be part of this amazing project and wrapped a whole facade into foil and tape. The idea behind the artwork was to transform a chrome-style background, as known from Graffiti into a gradient of foils and combine it with an abstract straight Tape-line Style. Thanks to the "Dixons", to "Farben Frikell" and everyone else who was involved for the support. Music: Cool Kids by Billy Early
Tape Art Around the World: Kuwait
We had an amazing time, bringing Tape Art to Kuwait this year. For the opening of the new "Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural Centre" we taped two huge glass-facades of the air and space museum and the museum for transportation and robots. Becides the facades we taped a hallway inside a museum and helt a workshop with lokals. We want to thank the Sheikh Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural Centre (www.ascckw.com) and all the people who were involved for this amazing project and the good times, we spent together.

Tape Art Around the World: Palestine
By the end of 2017 we had the chance to bring Tape Art to Palestine. As partners of the German Representative Office we organised workshops with the locals, exhibitions with live-performances and even got the chance to tape the wall in Bethlehem. It was an exciting, adventurous and eye-opening journey. Thanks to everyone who was part of Tape Art Around The World – Palestine: - A. M.
