Loop / Truck Tracks

2016

Loop is part of Truck Tracks Ruhr imagined and curated by Rimini Protokoll http://www.trucktracksruhr.de

Germany's Ruhr Valley ("Ruhrgebiet") takes the stage in 49 moments. Refocused and enriched by short audio files. Over the course of one year, 49 new views will be staged of the Ruhr Valley. A truck as a mobile auditorium drives through the city of Oberhausen, opens the view trhough a window and frames the city outside like the portal of a theater.

Album #1 is the first tour of Truck Tracks Ruhr, a concept by Rimini Protokoll, produced by Urbane Künste Ruhr, which will also tour through 6 other cities of the region.

 

About Loop: Various materials are created in the process of burning, ash and slag. Some are used to fill in now unused mines or as construction material for dams and streets. mercimax takes a moment to reflect with student Laura Nitsch about the value of things and about transitoriness.

mercimax: Karin Arnold, Jessica Huber, Mischa Robert
