As part of Asad Raza’s project Absorption, a new earth is created from clay, sand, compost and other ingredients by means of continuous processing through so-called cultivators. This process is accompanied by Gerd Wessolek, former professor for soil protection at University of Technology, Berlin. The conversation with Britta Peters on 9 September, artistic director of Urbane Künste Ruhr, focuses not only on the process-like dynamics and energy cycles of Absorption, but also on the special connection to the history of the Ruhr region and the venue in Essen’s city centre.

Due to limited capacity, registration is required. For registration click here.
