INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE = GOLD

A camera obscura project by Jonny Vekemans & HET VERVOLG / COALFACE

Genk

Genk is home for Jonny Vekemans who worked at the Winterslag coalmine, now C-Mine. C-Mine is the Belgian best practice in redevelopment of industrial heritage, combining a lot of respect for heritage with the creative industries and leasure.

 

Beringen

In Beringen the Flemish mining museum is the heart of the redevelopment of the most completely preserved industrial heritage site of Belgium. It is also the home of the COALWASHERY BERINGEN, only in 2013 saved after an intense and worldwide campaign to convince the Flemish government to keep the status as listed building. CONTAINER01 is the guest at a miners commemoration day of 25 years of closure of the pit.
