A visit to the MAUSA, Museum of Urban and Street Art – Neuf-Brisach, Alsace

Nestled on the German border, in the heart of the Alsatian town of Neuf-Brisach in the ramparts of Vauban’s fortress (1698 – 1704), the MAUSA (Museum of Urban and Street Art) is an atypical place. Highly colourful, dedicated to urban art, it opened its doors in July 2018. Since that date, Street art artists recognized worldwide, invest the place and cover the walls with their works.

A giant drawing on the facade of a building announces the museum. Follow the path along the grassy courtyard and enter the ramparts through the half arched gate.

The MAUSA is a living museum. It is not uncommon to come across an artist perched on a ladder with a spray can in hand. Among the many colorful works that adorn the space, you can discover, among others, those of Charles Uzzell Edwards, Aka Pure Evil, English graffiti artist, Ben Eine, whose real name is Ben Flynn, London graffiti artist, Christian Guémy, French stencil artist, Denis Meyers, Belgian urban artist, or Charles Leval, aka Levalet, French street art artist.

 

Come out in masks… and help the caregivers’ associations to protect themselves.

Calling on all people of good will to make washable masks for caregivers working in EPADH or visiting fragile people at home. I have contributed to this citizen action like many other little hands or seamstresses, such as Céline (Poupées de chiffon) that some of you know well and who has greatly contributed to this operation. We have worked for associations in Mulhouse and Belfort, but there is a demand all over France. It is of course voluntary work to help these frontline carers to protect themselves, without forgetting the barrier gestures. But these masks are already a first barrier when you don’t know if you are a carrier of the virus. Here is the link to the association “Réseau APA-la solidarité en plus” in Mulhouse, a city that has been very affected: www.reseau-apa.fr / You can also visit their Facebook page. You will also find many tutorials on YouTube and different templates. By following this link, you will be able to download the one I used as well as a technical document published by Afnor.
