In the organizer's words:

For most practitioners of stylewriting,trainbombing is one of the core elements of this art form.It is a tradition that was established by the painting of the New York subways in the 1970s and 80s and the history of stylewriting would probably have been very different if young people had not come up with the idea of writing their names on train cars. This act has lost none of its fascination, because to this day the majority of writers see the image on a passenger carriage with the accompanying photo documentation as the ultimate happiness.

The exhibition "On Platform" pays homage to the subject of trainbombing and its practitioners. The participants are three high-caliber international and three renowned national artists: Kaos, Tripl, Vino, Jepsy, Kent and Shark.

What they all have in common is that they have been covering trains with their works for more than three decades and they are still more or less active today. For "On Platform", the artists each designed a "Silberling", the type of train that was omnipresent on German public transport in West Germany at the beginning of the European writing movement. This was very frequently painted and has therefore achieved cult status among train models.

They also show prints, photos and their latest works of art on various materials.
