Julius von Bismarck

Apr 18th – Oct 31st, 2021
Emscherkunstweg, Duisburg

Julius von Bis­ma­rck has cre­a­ted in col­la­bo­ra­tion with Marta Dya­chenko a minia­ture city at the Old Emscher in Duis­burg. »Neu­stadt« con­sists of model house sculp­tu­res that once sha­ped the Ruhr area, but have been demo­lis­hed since the 2000s.

The Emscher­kunst­weg – Emscher Art Trail – is a per­ma­nent col­lec­tion of art in public space: eigh­teen arti­stic works acces­si­ble to eve­r­yone at all times and free of charge. Along the banks of the Emscher river you’ll see the uni­que con­ver­sion of the water­way that has deci­si­vely accom­pa­nied struc­tu­ral change in the Ruhr region.
