RECAP: Secret Wars Hamburg Round 35

RECAP: Secret Wars Hamburg Round 36

On Saturday, 14 December 2019, Secret Wars entered its 36th round! The last Live-Art Battle of the year took place in an old bank that will soon be demolished. Awesome location!
Two new teams battled this time on the wall: XuDaKa vs. Pressure!
At the turntables DJ Saint One provided the right spirit and also the talent battle with participants from the audience was again taking place.

But the teams weren’t that new, because Team Pressure around Fiona and Aki was supported by an old friend – Russlan from defending champion JeRuMi!
Xuli, Davina and Karsten formed the team XuDaKa! The battle was ready to begin.
After 90 minutes it was time to award the points. The first point was given by juror Mr. Banks to Team Pressure. The next point was awarded by the audience and that was very close, because there was only 2 DB difference. Nevertheless the second point went to Pressure. Although the winning team had already been identified, there was of course still an auction of both works! The artwork of XuDaka brought in 200€, the work of Pressure 350€. So this battle goes clearly with 3:0 to Pressure and 550€ will be donated to Viva con Agua. Congratulations!

So the winning team Pressure will compete against the winner of the last round in the new year. The battle for Secret Wars Round 37 has already been set: Pressure vs. JeRuMi! We are looking forward to it 😉

Secret Wars Hamburg Round 36 | 14 December 2019 in an old bank

Yes, that’s right! Secret Wars Hamburg happens once again this year. On Saturday, 14.12.19 it heads into the 36th round with some innovations: New location, new teams and a new DJ!

This time the location is pretty awesome – a former bank that will soon be demolished.
2 new great teams will battle on the wall, the defending champion JeRuMi will skip a round and compete against the winning team in the new year. This time Team XuDaKa will compete against Team Pressure! For the first time DJ Saint One is going to rock the decks. This is gonna be great!

But what remains the same are the rules: 2 teams, 90 minutes, white canvas, black markers! There is no limit to creativity, the teams are free to decide which motifs they put on the wall. After 90 minutes battle time 3 points are granted. The first point is awarded by a juror. The second point is awarded by the audience by capturing the screeching, cheering and clapping with a decibel meter. The team with the louder audience gets the second point. The third and often all decisive point is awarded through an auction. The artwork that generates the most money gets the last point. As always, all proceeds from the auction go to Viva con Agua!

The winning team will battle the defending champion JeRuMi in the new year at the next Secret Wars!

When: 14.12.19 from 21h
Where: Former bank, between Alster and Hauptbahnhof (opposite the Kunsthalle), Glockengießerwall 16, 20095 Hamburg

It was a hot one again at Secret Wars! The defending champion JeRuMi faced the challengers of Test, Test packed with girl power.
Test, Test – these are the artists Evelina Arakelyan, Stefanie Thiele and Julia Ahrens vs. JeRuMi with Russlan, Vadim and Jerry!
DJ Plazebo really got going right from the start and created a great atmosphere! The Jameson Talent Battle with artists* from the audience again produced really cool works.

After 90 minutes battle time it came to the decisive vote:
Judge Rudi, who created the blogs Streetart Hamburg and urbanshit, awarded the first point to Team Test, Test. The audience saw things differently and screamed louder for JeRuMi – 1:1! So the decision was made by the auction and a lot of money was raised for Viva Con Agua. The result was 500€ for the artwork of Test, Test and 575€ for the artwork of JeRuMi – Woop woop!

Team JeRuMi wins 2:1 and stays on the wall as defending champion. Congrats!

The location was an old car repair shop with containers in the backyard – that definitely had charm! Beer and bratwurst were served as refreshments, Buzz-T started at the turntables.
Then the Battle JeRuMi vs. DBS kicked off! There was also the Jameson Talent Battle again, where five guests could try their hand as artists on small stretcher walls. Of course only with black markers. The result were five really cool artworks. Instead of one winner there were two, Dave and cami_ffc secured the same amount of votes from the audience: Tie!

After 90 minutes the two teams JeRuMi and DBS finished! Who won this time? In any case it was a close decision, because the battle ended 2:1.
The first point was awarded by regular guest no. 1 Lars to JeRuMi. However, the audience decided differently on the basis of the volume, so that the second point went to DBS and there was first a tie. The decisive point was awarded by the auction. JeRuMi achieved the higher proceeds with their artwork, so they are still title holders. Congratulations!

At the auction a total of 720€ was raised, which will be donated to Viva con Agua. Great!

RECAP: Secret Wars Hamburg Round 33

Round 33 of Secret Wars Hamburg is over! On the 25. of May Team Dotu and JeRuMi had a rematch. In round 32 Team Dotu won the battle. This time the duel ended more clearly: With 3:0 JeRuMi won the match. Successful revenge! 😉
At the auction a total of 400€ was collected for Viva con Agua. Nice result!

P.S.: JeRuMi painted a pig army because it was Russlan’s girlfriend’s birthday and she likes pigs. True Love!

As already in Berlin there was again the Talent Battle, where 5 artists from the audience could let the magic happen on A3. 60 minutes time and of course only armed with black markers. The winner was Karsten Bambule – Congrats!
