Four words taken from a graffiti on the Blackcrossbowl perfectly describe the six years era of the legendary concrete DIY skate project in Basel. For some the bowl became a temporary living room for a few months every year, but even in the winter you could find people skating and hanging out by the fire regularly. The spirit of the Blackcrossbowl sparked and inspired other skateboarders all over Europe to take fate in their own hands and build a scene for themselves.
The FUCK FEAR DRINK BEAR group exhibition marks the ten year anniversary of the beginning of the Blackcrossbowl. It looks back and forward to explore and document the DIY spirit that is engrained in skateboarders everywhere.
