Dortmund lights up<br />

SUMMER AT THE U © DANIEL SADROWS<br />

The Dortmunder U – huge, transparent<br />

LED screens high above the city<br />

point the way to a unique hotspot of art,<br />

culture and science, visible from afar.<br />

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION<br />

→ DORTMUNDER-U.DE<br />

This is where the<br />

Union Brewery once<br />

brewed beer for coal<br />

miners. But now it’s<br />

a new type of arts<br />

centre combining art,<br />

research, cultural education and creativity. Exhibitions,<br />

film programmes, workshops, lectures, concerts, club<br />

evenings, video and sound art all find a dynamic space<br />

in the Dortmund U. The Ostwall Museum, the “Hartware<br />

MedienKunstVerein”, the UZWEI, the Dortmund University<br />

of Applied Sciences and Arts and the Dortmund University<br />

of Technology are among the many organisations<br />

working together in the “U” to create a future laboratory<br />

with a colourful programme for everyone. Here’s just a<br />

small selection of our activities in <strong>2022</strong>.<br />

ADVERTORIAL<br />

What is going on in<br />

<strong>2022</strong>?<br />

OSTWALL MUSEUM<br />

Fluxus, Expressionism, Informal Art – the most<br />

exciting aspects of 20th and 21st century art can<br />

be seen at the Museum Ostwall, even including<br />

current photo and video works. The focus in<br />

<strong>2022</strong> will be an exhibition entitled “Body & Soul.<br />

Thinking, Feeling, Brushing your Teeth”. It looks at<br />

various aspects of our bodies, and also our souls.<br />

Some works of art will actually be usable. Visitors<br />

can even bring their own bodies into the show and<br />

become part of a work of art themselves. Flowers<br />

in art also have a platform in a major temporary<br />

exhibition. “Flowers” will be using all forms of expression<br />

from the Baroque to Jawlensky, Warhol<br />

and Richter, to reveal their beauty and transience.<br />

UZWEI<br />

On the second level of the building young artists<br />

will be experimenting with digital and analogue<br />

media and showing how we deal with them. One<br />

of the highlights in <strong>2022</strong> is an innovative virtual,<br />

augmented reality exhibition in which digitally<br />

imagined worlds become tangible for visitors and<br />

the seemingly impossible becomes possible<br />

before their very eyes.<br />

HMKV<br />

The “HartwareMedienKunstverein” (HMKV) regularly<br />

causes a stir in the cultural scene with its powerful,<br />

controversial exhibitions and experimental<br />

media art. This is where they state their position –<br />

critical, opinionated, and grounded in content.<br />

SUMMER AT THE U<br />

It’s free and open-air! This year, for the ninth time in<br />

a row, the containers on the forecourt of the Dortmund<br />

U will be opening their doors for “Summer<br />

at the U”. The project, which has now turned into a<br />

“city oasis”, has something for everyone thanks to<br />

its “made-by-many” approach. The many different<br />

styles of concert, readings, slams, and DJ sets are<br />

perfect for a short summer break in the city.<br />

TINY FRIDAY<br />

Every Thursday evening from 7 p.m. onwards visitors<br />

have the opportunity to get swept up in an<br />

exclusive programme of concerts, workshops, film<br />

screenings and sports events at various locations<br />

in and around the Dortmund U.<br />

THE PICTURE HOUSE<br />

The cinema in the U has become the new place<br />

to meet after work. Every Tuesday at 6 p.m.<br />

and on the first Friday of every month at 8 p.m.<br />

there's an after-work movie programme featuring<br />

films that no longer find a place in mainstream<br />

cinemas.<br />

FAMILY SUNDAY<br />

From 12 noon to 5 p.m. on the first Sunday of<br />

every month, visitors of all ages are offered a<br />

colourful programme on almost every floor of<br />

the building. There are tours of the Dortmund U<br />

as well as numerous hands-on activities for the<br />

whole family to join in the fun together.<br />

DEW21 MUSEUM NIGHT<br />

The Dortmunder U is where the annual DEW21<br />

Museum Night takes place. There are workshops<br />

and hands-on activities for young and old alongside<br />

a number of guided tours that take a closer<br />

look at individual aspects of our current exhibitions.<br />

Highlights like<br />

the façade projection<br />

mapping the Lab kiU<br />

story-research project<br />

– it’s also based<br />

in the Dortmund U –<br />

recently astonished<br />

visitors with its threedimensional<br />

video<br />

mapping.
