Installation/New Works

There haven’t been any goods in these shops and their windows for a long time. Nothing is sold here, at most shortages are administered. But that’s all over now. The Ruhrtriennale turns empty shop-fronts into new art spaces. Orphaned local shop units turn into galleries for a limited period. Spread across Bochum, Dinslaken and Duisburg, young artists from renowned art schools present installations and other works specially created for these empty shop windows. Every work an exhibition piece (Ausstellungsstück). Not for sale, priceless, but on view every day. A new generation of emerging artists is there to be seen.

Anthony Nestel: “The Holy Land of the Ganda”

Ritterstraße 3 – 5, 46535 Dinslaken

I want to question both positions, the position of both sides. Both positions being passive. The vitrine is usually being used as a boarder between two oppositions. I am not trying to break that constellation of oppositions, I just want to use the vitrine as a screen, a screen of one self, an entrance towards one self or maybe just a mirror of destruction. (Anthony Nestel)

And what about after the project? – the Ruhrtriennale would like ‘Ausstellungsstück’ to contribute to reviving city centres as meeting places and community spaces. With this in mind it is desirable that the vacant properties should also be used after the project period. Anyone interested in renting one of the shops should contact the representatives of Bochum Marketing GmbH, GFW Duisburg and Wirtschaftsförderung Dinslaken.
