What is the project about?
For me the most important aspect in my life and in my work is the connection with other humans. The listening to, collecting and telling of stories has always been the most meaningful and most beautiful for me. This has given me strength with my identity, life choices and art making.

Who is Luki von der Gracht?
I am an 28-year-old artist based between Berlin and Düsseldorf working with different media: From my visual arts works to performance everything is connected. With my band "Die Hässlichen Vögel" I have found my love to song writing and live performance. To see some of our music work click on the category "Die Hässlichen Vögel" on the right. With this new project I am interested to dig deeper into song writing, making music together and performing for a live audience.
Lots of Love,
