An extensive communication programme accompanies the exhibition on weekends, Ascension Day and Corpus Christi during the entire period. During the Irrlichter-Tours, our trained art educators set out together with the visitors to explore the Ruhr Ding. Walking and bike tours link the different venues and allow visitors to discover the various districts in which they are located. They invite visitors to see the art projects in a new light, to get to know new districts and rediscover familiar ones, and to discuss what they have seen.
You can bring your own bike or rent one. Bike rental stations will be located near the train stations in Mülheim an der Ruhr and Witten. Of course, you can also explore the exhibition on your own. On site you will meet our competent colleagues from our art education team. Information on how to prepare for the exhibition can be found online, on site at our info points in Mülheim an der Ruhr, Essen-Steele und Witten, and in the exhibition guide, which is available in advance.
The outreach programme Irrlichter-Tours is supported by E.ON Stiftung.
Participation in the Irrlichter-Tours is free, and tickets can be booked in advance via Bookwhen. Last-minute participation in the tours is also possible, depending on availability. Places are limited, so if you cannot attend, please cancel booked tickets promptly, so other visitors can participate.
You can join the Irrlichter-Tours with your own bike, or bikes can be rented from our partner RevierRad at the starting points. In order to plan your visit optimally, we recommend booking the tours and rental bikes in advance, as numbers of participants may vary according to the capacity on site. Registration for Irrlichter-Tours and bicycle rental can both be arranged online.
For tours in English and other languages, as well as group requests beyond the regular tour offer, please contact our art education team:

Tours for FLINTA*
With our FLINTA* tours, it is our aim to create a site for safe conversation and exchange on the artworks found in Ruhr Ding: Schlaf, and to move through public space strengthened by the group. Which discourses arise when we look at the themes of these artistic positions from a FLINTA* perspective?
The only requirements for participation are an interest in art in public space and an enjoyment of bicycling or taking walks, as well as one’s own self-classification as FLINTA* (female, lesbian, interbinary, nonbinary, transgender, and agender)
Thu 18 May, 4 pm, on foot in Mülheim an der Ruhr
Thu 8 June, 4 pm, by bicycle in Witten
Duration: about 2 Stunden.
