An interesting contrast to General Blumenthal Colliery is provided by the Consol Theatre, also located on a former mining site. Together with the theatre a long-term participatory project dedicated to the organisms living in Consol Park was launched. From here you can reach the Heimatmuseum Unser Fritz in Herne with just a few minutes’ bicycle ride along the Rhine-Herne Canal. The city of Gelsenkirchen, a project location only added after the exhibition was rescheduled, can be characterised as the place where the climate theme is most directly addressed. With reflections on taxidermy and loss and weather forecasts, two unusual perspectives are introduced here, and certainly somewhere in Gelsenkirchen one will also encounter the ghost that virtually haunts the entire exhibition.
