Sad News


We are very sad to learn that Urdrü, the phenomenal annunciator of the Sproutbau Republic, has passed away on October 4th. We remember his generosity, humor and his good natured approach to putting up with our chaotic creativeness during his stay on the Sproutbau grounds. Without him the start of the project wouldn´t have been as passionate and as stimulating. Thank you so much, you will stay in our memories!

We extend our best wishes to his family and friends.

More information (in German) can be found on this ---> blog.

And here is a link to Dan and Trish´s first Sproutbaurecord incorporating Urdrü´s speech.

Underneath a load of old ads suddenly the Betonale poster popped up. Seen today, Sunday the 7th of 2008. Good things just don´t go away :)

die kleingeldprinzessin im lagerhaus

Die Kleingeldprinzessin im Wehrschloss, Juli 2007

Letztes Jahr hatten wir das große Glück, dass die Kleingeldprinzessin (Support Lenasingt und Ich und mein Tiger) großzügigerweise für den Sproutbau ein Soli-Konzert gegeben hat. Der Abend war ein voller Erfolg - und ohne diese finanzielle Starthilfe hätten wir es anfangs wesentlich schwerer gehabt.

Wir freuen uns daher, dass Dota jetzt wieder nach Bremen kommt! Für alle die sie gerne wiedersehen wollen und für alle die sie damals verpasst haben, die Kleingeldprinzessin tritt am Freitag, dem 18.4. um 20.00 Uhr im Lagerhaus auf.

movie screening at kurzschluss

Sproutbau Movie - a film by Ricardo Cedeño Montaña.

During the summer of 2007 the Sproutbau project brought life to an empty multi-storey building doomed for demolition. Artists, architects, visionaries and creative people of all kinds moved into the 110 apartment units to realize their ideas around alternative living, intentional communities and visual arts. When Ricardo Cedeño Montaña heard about the project he decided to follow the work and life of some of the participants with a film camera. This coming weekend the finished movie will be publicly screened for the first time.

Joined by the project team and some active members of the Sproutbau, Ricardo will be present to receive questions - and of course applause. A discussion about the movie, Sproutbau and upcoming projects will be made possible after the screening.

Where: Kurzschluss, Lahnstraße 16, Neustadt
Time: 12.4. um 20.00 Uhr
