Changing Shifts



„This is not Detroit!“ was the provocative subtitle of The Detroit-Project presented by Schauspielhaus, Bochum’s theatre and Urbane Künste Ruhr. For over a year, an international discussion among artists and curators from the various European Opel locations of Germany, Spain, Poland and the UK took place focusing on the future of the city, work and art.
This handbook for changing cities presents all works of art which were created during The Detroit-Project. The research on a new urban culture is exemplified in theoretical essays. Please click here for a short extract (ca. 4 mb).
