Red Retro & Berlin Subway Stations

After modifying stations in Madrid and Valencia, Red Retro renamed some subway stations in Berlin between September 15th and 26th!

He changed for example “Alt-Mariendorf” into “Strg + Alt + Apple-Key”, “Alexanderplatz” into “Alexanderspass” and “Pankstraße” into “Punkstraße”. These changes are not digital – Red Retro uses original vinyl-transparency to make his mostly funny wordplays.

The aim of this creative urban interventions is to break through the wall of people’s daily routine and monotony and to provoke human emotions.

Red Retro is now on the way to Latin America. I’m curious to see what there will be come next. For more info, visit www.redretro.org or check out his Flickr-photostream.

Here are some of his Berlin subway conversions:
