The Völklingen Iron Works, a giant monument of 19th century industry, dominating the skyline of Völklingen, is now a World Cultural Heritage Site and a place for major exhibitions. The last exhibition – The Celts. Druids. Princes. Warriors – has just closed, attracting nearly 200.000 visitors.
Further sections of the plant – blower shed and works locker rooms – were opened up to make use of these generous industrial spaces for contemporary art exhibitions.
Colleen, Anni, Walter (and Leo) exploring the exhibition space.
Art and industry. Two sides of the spirit of mankind. Inspiring each other.
