    The Dark Roses

    TDR was founded by some graffiti artists and members of The New Nation back in 1984.
    In the early years a dedicated graffiti crew, but today more likely collaborative entrepreneurs of art: Contemporary artists and collectors, graphic and architectural designers, photographers, dj's, music and filmmakers.
    It all began with few working principles in mind: To questioning, to avoid and to ignore the common mainstream.

    By being a member of TDR means:
    To share the history of Hip Hop and to share the outlaw spirit by using one or several of the outlaw instruments as an expression of questioning the common policy of today.

    If TDR got any philosophy, then it's beyond nationality, socio economics, ethnicities, religions, colors, genders, eras, lies - also in politics, greed, ignorance, violence and peoples doings made by themselves or by order from another without responsibility.

    If you got any questions, a god idea, paint or ink to be tested, textile, a wall, or a festival etc. DO NOT HESITATE.
    Contact TDR by THIS EMAIL for any requests.

    DoggieStudio Photo, Motion, Audio Archive

    The studio is currently based in Copenhagen, Denmark and in Istanbul, Turkey. It was started by the artist-observer DoggieDoe, one of the pioneers of Danish Hip Hop back in the early 80’s.

    It all began in the 70’s with a Braun cassette recorder, a Zenith camera and a super 8mm film camera. It became a passion to observe and to catch the moment of life. Later on it became a collection - not only in the category of Hip Hop, but from places around the world - a split second of the life or death, and of the almost forgotten.

    Radio Dub Mix from 1982

    Al Jones, radio Dj from Danish Radio and Television was one of the pioneers of the early 80’s, if not the pioneer. To introduce the citizen of Denmark to the world of Hip-Hop and rap music. "A kind of street music" many of his colleagues from the establishment denied to play, didn't understood or knew very little about.

    In the following years a handful of Scandinavian Dj's and rappers started to explore the break beats and made their own versions of mix and rap music. They became hardcore, but was little known to the wider audience. Inspired by very few, they were followed up by others, by whom it was transformed and civilized to a mixture-beats of pop. Today it's hard to imagine a day without those beats.

    Yttrandefrihet och äganderätt - 40 år med graffiti

    Det finns de som hävdar att den offentliga platsen är demokratins viktigaste arena. På denna offentliga plats pågår ett symboliskt krig mellan yttrandefrihet och äganderätt. Denna konflikt om vem som får yttra sig har sitt centrum i graffiti och gatukonst.
