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

Rhein-Neckar and Ruhr start cooperation

At the network meeting of the Creative.Quarters on March 16, 2015 the new cooperation between the ruhr region and the monopoly region of Rhine-Neckar was presented. For this event, Frank Zumbruch travelled from Mannheim to Oberhausen and reported on the C-HUB, whose exhibition spaces will be the key element for the cooperation of the regions. The new building with 2,000 m² of usable floor space for business start-ups from almost all sub-sectors of the creative economy is fully leased before the opening in July 2015 already. Frank Zumbruch: "In Mannheim we consider the participants in the cultural and creative economy to be the new working class in the knowledge-based urban society - after more than 10 years of a persistent and continuous policy, the C-HUB is now the third centre for the creative economy in Mannheim which is fully leased before opening. This speaks for itself and the attractiveness of the city".

The Agentur TFCC (Agency TFCC) presented the first research results of the evidence library study (a collection of around 100 spillover projects within Europe) in the form of a workshop, and these were subsequently discussed together. In addition further courses of action and the communication of the project and its results were debated.

to be debated

Spillover effects due to culture: basis of innovations, political wishful thinking or the second career of a buzzword? One thing is certain: culture is increasingly being considered for its effect, while the topic “follow-up effects and kick-off functions“ is establishing itself as an integral part of EU programmes.  In the first issue of the publication series “to be debated“ ecce approaches the need for discussion and research on the topic of spillover and publishes an article by the cultural scientist Dr. Jonathan Vickery, University of Warwick, which was written following the masterclass “Strengthening Culture in Urban Developments in Europe“ within the CATALYSE programme at the beginning of 2014.
