mural at the historical Huehnerposten at Hamburg Main-Station
In 2008, graffiti artists Mirko Reisser (DAIM), Heiko Zahlmann (RKT one) and Gerrit Peters (TASEK) of getting-up were commissioned by the FAMOS Projekt GmbH to design the outer wall of the “Huehnerposten” – the former railway post office that, since 2004, has housed the central library of the “Buecherhallen Hamburg” library network.
It involved the embellishment of the plain red brick wall using by seven gigantic images created under difficult circumstances directly next to the track entrance to the Hamburg’s main station. In order to minimize the risk of injury for the artists, the Deutsche Bahn assigned trained security personnel for their protection and redirected the trains to other tracks. The artists themselves were equipped with clearly visible warning vests.
Before the start of the project Reimund Schulz, managing director of FAMOS, commented: “We want to support young artists, and, at the same time, we want to embellish our historical building where it makes sense. The Huehnerposten, which now houses the Buecherhallen and the Goethe Institute, is also an important cultural location in Hamburg. Proof of this are not only the internationally renowned Balkenhol sculptures which adorn the square in front of the Huehnerposten, but also the square itself; Arno-Schmidt-Platz was named after a once almost forgotten literary great.

During the work on “Prozess” getting-up member Heiko Zahlmann explained the concept: “We are done with the priming of the red brick surfaces and will now begin by applying an image consisting of calligraphic elements. We have each developed our own styles in terms of calligraphy. We will compose these calligraphic characters directly on the wall. The art work is entitled “Prozess”. We abstract and encode terms and phrases that relate to the term “process” in the context of development. In doing so, we also incorporate the building’s tenants into the piece: the focus of the Oeffentliche Buecherhallen’s and the Goethe-Institut’s work is also on the art of writing.
