Banksy's Dismaland & Others

barry cawston

Banksy's projects "Dismaland" and "Walled Off Hotel" achieved the greatest worldwide response of all art projects in 2015 and 2017. It is a sensation that Banksy's official photographer, Barry Cawston, is bringing these extraordinary art projects to life for the first time worldwide in an exhibition with his very special pictures.

The UrbanArt Hotspot Völklinger Hütte is thus taking on a new dimension. British artist Banksy is a phantom whose identity is unknown to the public, and yet he is the greatest star of international urban art. The exhibition "Banksy's Dismaland & Others - Photographs by Barry Cawston" traces the Banksy phenomenon in very vivid images.

Weltkulturerbe Völklinger Hütte - Europäisches Zentrum für Kunst und Industriekultur

The Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site is the only fully preserved ironworks of industrial culture. Covering an area of more than 600.000 m2, the gigantic ironworks are a must-see attraction for anyone seeking the exceptional. On a tiny space it displays a collection of milestones in high technology of the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, the Völklinger Hütte forms part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites, like the Cheops pyramid in Egypt, the Great Wall of China, the Acropolis in Athen and Cologne Cathedral.

Where once there were chimneys smoking and a deafening noise was part of everyday work, is now a place of concerts and large-scale exhibitions.
