Christian Boltanski: Die Zwangsarbeiter - Erinnerungsort in der Völklinger Hütte

Over the past few years, the Völklinger Hütte World Heritage Site has conducted and presented extensive research into forced labourers at Völklinger Hütte. The internationally renowned French artist Christian Boltanski has now created a memorial for the people who were forced to work at Völklinger Hütte. The result is an emotional work of art that keeps the memory of these people alive. The major installation by Christian Boltanski in the Völklinger Hütte sintering plant engages with the issue of forced labour in a new and deeply moving way.

Christian Boltanski: Erinnerungen | Souvenirs | Memories

Christian Boltanski was also inspired by the daily work performed by the ironworkers and has dedicated a large temporary installation to them and their emotions. In addition to the forced labour memorial site, he has created a major installation in memory of the workers at Völklinger Hütte. Located in the 800-square-metre ore shed, this installation comprises ninety-one atmospherically illuminated lockers from all parts of the ironworks. The voices of former ironworkers recalling their work at Völklinger Hütte resonate from the lockers.

Robots: hopes and fears – evening panel discussion

There are many ways in which robots could improve healthcare and wellbeing: robotic surgeons are already being used in highly intricate operations, including to treat patients with pancreatic and kidney cancer; in our aging society, robots could help to care for the elderly with humanoid carers; while the many people who are unable to drive for health reasons could find greater independence thanks to driverless cars.
