The video Postludium is an obituary for the former gasworks area in Augsburg/ Oberhausen. It shows a ghostlike dance in the empty rooms of the building especially of a historical disc-type gasometer, built in 1915, and another recent disc-type gasometer (“Gaskessel”). This work raises the question of whether a building has a memory and thus also an identity.
The sound piece “Echoes of Industry” is a production by Gerald Fiebig and Christian Z. Müller. It was recorded in the “Gaskessel”.
An exhibition by Eri Kassnel, Jakob Krattiger and Gerald Fiebig

“Contrary to popular usage, places are not only determined by their location in space, but also in time. This exhibition presents three artistic positions that start from the (photographic or auditory) documentation of real places. What all positions have in common is that they integrate the spatially clearly defined place into a process that shows: the place has different identities depending on the time in which one perceives it.” Gerald Fiebig
