Carhartt WIP releases a reissued version of the 2018 book One Week With 1UP, which sees two photographers, Martha Cooper and Ninja K, follow the infamous Berlin graffiti crew over the space of seven days, documenting their work. One Week with 1UP Bundles are limited to 100, with each including a special edition t-shirt and signed print. All proceeds will go to Refuge Worldwide, a radio station located in Berlin Neukölln, Weserstr. 166
Refuge Worldwide was launched in 2015 as a fundraising platform, working in solidarity with grassroots and non-profit organizations to support young women, refugees, the homeless, those fleeing domestic violence, and other marginalized groups. The new radio station, initially launched as a digital space in January 2021, has since found a home with a physical radio studio and bar in Berlin Neukölln. It offers an independent community space, amplifying the people, music and issues at the heart of their work.
One Week With 1UP explores a unique bond between the renowned documentary photographer Martha Cooper who, since the 1970s, has captured some of the most enduring images of graffiti and hip-hop scenes and one of the world’s largest, most fearless modern-day graffiti crews. Accompanying the book is a reworked version of the original t-shirt released in 2018, which features 1UP’s smiley face motif applied in silver on a black base.
The One Week With 1UP bundle will be available exclusively from Carhartt WIP’s Berlin Mitte store and carhartt-wip.com
