It takes a good ten minutes on the S-Bahn to travel from Herne to Recklinghausen. Or you can walk along Bochumer Straße and cross the imperceptible change in city boundaries. At the station, a former tram kiosk is taken over by bats, and a few metres further on, the Kunsthalle Recklinghausen presents Mariechen Danz’s solo exhibition Clouded in Veins. The exhibition is a collaboration between Kunsthalle and Ruhrfestspiele Recklinghausen, with whom we are arranging another performative project in a large tennis hall near the Festspielhaus. The numerous collaborations that Ruhr Ding supports at all its locations anchor the exhibition project in the region and link different groups of visitors — local residents, theatre audiences, or friends of the local history museum — with the temporary art project, and vice versa. The beautiful and rough General Blumenthal colliery, recently saved from demolition by a heterogeneous community of users, forms a central hub within walking distance of the Festspielhaus with its large installations.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and the current COVID-19 regulations all art sites will remain temporarily closed. We will inform here and via all our communication channels as soon as the situation changes.
Admission is free.
For the exhibition Clouded in Veins by Mariechen Danz at the Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, the museum charges an entrance fee.
