Kathrin Türks Hall – A hall for all

029Built in 1973, Kathrin Türks Hall in Dinslaken was the heart of the cultural life in the city since it was opened in 1975. In 2015 it had to be closed due to considerable deficiencies in fire protection and serious structural defects. To protect the passers from any harm and keep out vandals and burglars, a site fence of 200m has been erected in 2016. After a few months, Urban Arts Dinslaken,  a cooperation of young artists based in Dinslaken, 034were commissioned by the city to design a first section of the fence in front of the main entrance of the city hall. Tim Blankenstein and Julian Schimanski have chosen as a motif  twelve photorealistic portraits matching the slogan of the hall „A hall for all“. They show people of differing nationalities, cultures and age in black and white, which spruce up the dull and grey fence. In 2020, when the restoration of the building 044shall be completed, the fence with the elaborate portraits will disappear.
