CREATIVE COHESION – The city partnership between Berlin and Jakarta from the perspective of two graffiti artists

Das Mural in Jakarta

The Mural in Jakarta

To mark the 25th anniversary of the city partnership between Berlin and Jakarta, the two graffiti artists Snyder (Berlin) and Darbotz (Jakarta) created a mural together in Jakarta in 2019.

Since then, street art has been a recurring theme in our partnership. On 29 April 2021 at 3:00 p.m., the Senate Chancellery and the House of Indonesian Cultures are hosting an online expert discussion in English in which the two artists Snyder and Darbotz give insight into the graffiti scene in Berlin and Jakarta.

Moderated by Jan Sauerwald, director of the Urban Nation Museum in Berlin, this event will highlight and discuss street art culture, which is a dominant feature of the urban environment.

In addition, the two artists will be presenting the motif created in their most recent collaboration to the public for the first time. You can find out more about its genesis in the article at

More information is available in the invitation.
