14 murals in the Hanseatic Cities

In 14 different Hanseatic cities in the Netherlands and Germany are murals realized. These Hanseatic cities are: Maasbommel, Hasselt, Elburg, Harderwijk, Hattem, Zwolle, Deventer, Zutphen, Doesburg, and four German cities Wesel, Emmerich am Rhein, Neuss and Kalkar.

The starting point for the murals is a photograph depicting two people from the city in question. These can be well-known personalities, but also other inhabitants selected for the photo motif. The historical scene depicted is combined with a related contemporary motif. An individual QR code will then be added to the mural (by the end of 2022). After scanning the code on the smartphone, the actors step out of the mural and tell a story about the city and the mural scene.
