A camera obscura project by Jonny Vekemans & HET VERVOLG / COALFACE
In 2015 the container visited the Ruhr area in Germany.
Jonny traveled many kilometers visiting what is still left of the Ruhr mining industry preparing new pictures to decorate the container for this event.
With a container full off Ruhr heritage he gave a workshop in Gelsenkirchen for 10 days. Many visitors came to participate.
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.
