Uecke lives and thrives

Like other European coal mining towns, Gelsenkirchen and especially Ückendorf and its 20.000 inhabitants are suffering from the decline in mining activity in the area as well as the whole Ruhr region.

Pottwall Jam 2019 – After the Jump

You’re welcome to feel sorry for me.

MARTHA MARGARETE – NARCOLEPTIC

I would like to draw your attention to the upcoming solo show „NARCOLEPTIC“ of MARTHA MARGARETE. She is an Essen based female artist showing a majority of her current works.
