From 10th to 30th of March 2014 I will be in a room in the centre of Essen - though only Mondays til Fridays and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It's called klasse:Raum and you can get an impression via these links here, here and here. This is meant to be a project that sees me working there and inviting people in, but also showing memorabilia like posters and magazines from 20 years in Essen.
So today I got the keys and checked the room. I have been there about twelve or fifteen times before, because I am also curating this year all over 2014, normally finding members of Kreative Klasse, a professional association of creative business people from the Ruhr Area, to use the room for themselves for about a month. But now I am in there, as my freelancer self.
So what do I see and what do I do? I find a mysterious sign right beneath the entrance door and decide to find out more about the history of this building I will be in.
I put some things on the walls and on the floor so that people have something to look at.
I leave after two hours.
