9th of July to 1st of October 2010
XCHANGE stands for the continuing change of the “RUHR” culture scenery. This was a thought-provoking, innovative and accessible project. It took you from the industrial heritage into modern times and synchronically showed the art & life style of this dynamic melting pot of cultures and nationalities. The historical courtyard displayed landart and the artist couple took you to the “inner space”, addressing the senses of myths.
Another part was the installation and photo documentation, which told the history of the traditional Kiosk of the area. A video projection did show the story of a British lady who traveled by train from Liverpool station in London to Leipzig. The story was based on an originally existing train track. The track passes the main cities of the Ruhr region. The story tells how a foreigner experienced the country and people.
