A piece of waste ground in Oberhausen that local children call The Land of the Future, a swimming pool in Recklinghausen accompanied by the sound of machine guns, an open microphone outside Dortmund central station, the escalator of a Mülheim shopping centre set to music as a movie scene.

Over the course of a year Rimini Protokoll has invited 49 artists to bring audiences closer to 49 different locations in the Ruhr region: places which are unusual and normal, central and out of the way, meaningful and elusive. Sitting in a converted lorry, the audience can look through a glass screen at their city and the chosen locations, while listening to the short plays and musical works that have been conceived for them.

In seven albums, each with seven tracks, the work casts new perspectives on Europe’s most densely populated region from Duisburg via Bochum to Essen. For “five minutes of fame” the incidental events beyond the glass screen become miniature dramas. The filmmakers Ulrike Franke and Michael Loeken have accompanied the project.

The resulting films have now been brought together in a video installation at the Kohlenmischanlage Zollverein. The stories and perspectives are edited together into a compilation on seven screens, thus removing the separation of locations in time and space. Visitors find themselves in an audio-visual landscape which becomes a composite artistic image of the Ruhr region.
