in the "swimming-pool" hall of fame. Last week the government started the
of this former outdoor swimmingpool in Knokke to add this area to the 'Zwinbosjes'
But there was more graffiti-news in the media last week, due to the fact
that two writers were caught in Vorst. 'TerZake
even came to bruges to ask the point of view of the 'preventiedienst'. For
those who want to see more graffiti on their tv-screen, 'Telefacts

primitives' exhibition special). Thanks go out to the people who helped
us out with our server problems and everybody who's supporting ZONE8000.
update 22: 31 new flix
As you might have noticed, Tripod has decided that next to the pop-ups,
every page should have a banner. Consequently this will be the last update
for this version and hopefully we find a solution, so that we'll be able
to bring you more graffiti in and from bruges. If you have suggestions,
flix, comments or you want to be added to our mailinglist, just mail us

the bruges' graffiti prevention project seems very popular as an example
for other cities, not only in belgium (the city of ghent is starting with
a similar campaign (check ghentizm.be
for an article about this topic)), but other european countries are also
following the example of bruges. sweden is one of them, the question is,
however, if the situation in a rather small town as bruges, is compairable
with that of a city as stockholm...
a new update is comming soon and we're also working on another restyling
