Photographer's Note

The Zollverein coking plant (Kokerei Zollverein) entered public awareness with a bang in 1999, thanks to a massive exhibition entitled Sun, Moon and Stars. Who would have thought that the plant, which closed down in 1993, might once again play host to hundreds of thousands of visitors? Today, the coking plant along with the neighbouring Zollverein pit is part of a large-scale development to turn the sites into long-term centres of excellence in North Rhine-Westphalia. Top-class international centres for design, commerce, art and culture are filling the sites with life once more...
