Blackout Cities

Blackout Cities Berlin's iconic streets and monuments revisited in unique handmade illustrations ! Blackout Cities is an artistic project of the Berlin based Moroccan / Swiss / Belgian architect Marie M.

Benaboud. The first series of Blackout Cities concern the German Capital. Combining architecture,photography and illustration to produce unique visions of urban sceneries. The excessive and exclusive use of black, the strong composition as well as the absence of human presence, generate an obscure atmosphere characterising her work. All her drawings and prints are self-made in her atelier, mostly signed and in limited editions.

A little interview for Stattlab e.V.. That's where I produce my screen prints ! and it's also an inspiring collective of artists!

Check out our new "MEMBER OF THE WEEK" post. This week's STATTLAB Artist is: Blackout Cities

Who are you?

I am Blackout Cities, my other alias is Marie Benaboud. I am a visual artist based in Berlin.

What are you working on?

I draw illustrations of urban sceneries based on photographs. I mainly produce screenprints based on my drawings, but I also paint murals.

How did you came to Stattlab?

I started my drawings 5 years ago, and I was looking for a place to produce screenprints of them. I remember coming to the lab for a visit, next thing I know I was a member!

Why do you think it is important to work in a collective?

I think it is important to share skills and also feel like you can trust the people that are sharing your workplace. When you work in a collective, you start making these bonds that you rarely find in a regular shared facility for screenprinting. This trust can bring a lot of inspiration and generate new ideas for your projects, not only in a technical point of view but also in a conceptual one.

I found in my drawers some old sketches back when Blackout Cities started in 2016. The idea behind the small sketches is to test the composition and the black and white balance before starting the large detailed drawings. Back then I was not interested in Berlin’s central station (first picture) , but now that I look closely, I think it would be worth giving it a go. 💪🏼

Now on our online shop! Screenprint of the famous brutalist building Spitteleck in Berlin (Mitte). This complex was built between 1980 and 1985 under the direction of the architect Eckart Schmidt. In 1986 it was awarded the architecture price of the Capital Berlin during ex-GDR. It is now famous for carrying a big neon “Coca-Cola” sign on top of it.
