Webcam Dortmunder U

Adolf Winkelmann's film installation "Flying Pictures" lights up the U-tower: the picture clock on the roof top runs daily from 6:00 in the morning to midnight. Every day has its own motif. In the time from midnight to 6:00 in the morning the picture clock shows the real time. The installation can be seen not only in Dortmund, but throughout the world via webcam.  >> MORE

Regional exchange: Silesia meets the Ruhr

On 1 April ecce welcomed the representatives of “Metropolia Silesia”, Adam Baron and Prof. Miroslaw Nakonieczny. The Regionalverband Ruhr invited the representatives of the Metropolitan Association of Upper Silesia to step up the networking of the Ruhr region with the Upper Silesian region and to discuss possible future cooperation. The connection between Silesia and the Ruhr is not only a result of their migration history, but the two former coal mining regions also share a similar structure. Among the topics they covered with ecce were the exchange between the Uniwersytet Slaski (University of Silesia) in Katowice into the Ruhr region, collaboration in cultural and medial projects and in connection with the Creative.Quarters Ruhr as well as establishing networks between companies from both regions.
