In order to open up artistic and cultural values ​​to a broader public, to bring them closer to young people in particular and transport historical works of art into the future by means of urban art, Dr. Hans Riegel-Foundation has launched art project series "Walls of Vision".
Essen based artists Jan Schoch aka EIKE & COSI have chosen and reinterpreted the famous historic artwork of Alphonse Mucha " Die vier Jahreszeiten", which was realized at Weiglestraße just below A40  highway underpass. 

Autumn: Portrait Esneda Saavedra Restrepo

She belongs to the indigenous Yukpa people in Colombia. For years, her people have been driven out of their habitats by paramilitaries, sometimes with violence and murder, in order to develop coal mining areas for western companies such as Glencore. A delegation from the Yukpa recently travelled the world to report on the threat they face and also visited Essen. Esneda and other Yukpa resisters have been assassinated several times in an attempt to quell their protest. Le Monde Diplomatique, among others, has reported on Esneda and the Yukpa.
