Accompanying the exhibition "Inca - Gold. Power. The World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte shows photographic works taken by Helmut R. Schulze on his travels in Peru, Chile or Bolivia. In the former land of the Incas, Helmut R. Schulze sets out to search for traces of this lost culture.

The pictures of the exhibition "Inca-Land - Reisefotografien von Helmut R. Schulze" show the different landscapes of mountains and sea or the famous "Nazca Lines". They show village and metropolitan life, festivities and everyday life. Helmut R. Schulze was particularly impressed by the specific light in the region, which makes the peculiarities and contours of the landscape stand out particularly clearly and vividly.

Above all, however, his photographs are an encounter with people - the descendants of Moche, Chimú and Inka. A total of 15 large-format photographs can be seen in the Möllerhalle of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte.

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.
