TRUCK TRACKS RUHR - THE COMPILATION

A video exhibition by Rimini Protokoll/loekenfranken
August 19th to September 30th 2017, Tuesday-Sunday, 1:00 - 9:00 pm
Mischanlage, Kokerei Zollverein, Essen
Free Entrance

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.

TRUCK TRACKS RUHR

A Concept by Rimini Protokoll

 

The centerpiece of Truck Tracks Ruhr is a truck that changes our view of the Ruhr Region. The truck has been turned into a huge theater and on the one side outfitted with a huge window that frames the view outside. 49 artists treat 49 locations and focus the gaze of the spectator on striking, unknown, animated, or remote points of the Ruhr region.

From April 2016 to April 2017, the truck will be underway in seven cities. In each city, seven places will be targeted and released as an album. Every seven weeks a new region will be presented to the public, with seven new places, new tracks.
