Together with artists organised in Kunst-Wasser-Werk Schwerin e.V., REMONDIS Aqua is staging a travelling exhibition on the topic of water. Its exhibition, “Artefakt VI“, began its tour in Schwerin in September of last year, then moving into the Turbinensaal in Cottbus, after that continuing on to the REMONDIS head office in Lünen, and ending the tour in Goslar in February.
In their exhibition, artists organised in Kunst-Wasser-Werk Schwerin e.V. analyse the topic of water in a creative manner. This makes the exhibition a multi-experiential event. Graphic works, ranging from sculptures all the way to photographs of various striking works, await visitors. With the support of REMONDIS Aqua, persons interested in art can visit the exhibition at four sites one after the other.

The artists selected their home city of Schwerin for the first stage in the travelling exhibition. The rooms at Schwerin Municipal Utility provided the exhibition space there. In Cottbus, the exhibition was shown within the framework of the 2018 REMONDIS Forum. The works of art were displayed in the Turbine Room in the old power station, which has been restored to its original state. Afterwards, the artists exhibited their works in the head office of the REMONDIS Group in Lünen, which is listed as a national monument. The grand opening was accompanied by a family festival at REMONDIS Aqua and a tour of Lippewerk.
In Goslar, tangible support was provided by the Rammelsberg World Heritage site. To the tremendous delight of artists and visitors, it was possible to exhibit the art works in the unique atmosphere of the Barite Room of the World Cultural Heritage site.

The exhibition was officially opened by Goslar‘s Lord Mayor, Dr. Oliver Junk, and the Managing Director of the Rammelsberg Erzbergwerk World Cultural Heritage, Gerhard Lenz. “This exhibition is at first glance unusual for the mining area. But, he adds immediately, mining would scarcely have been possible on such a scale without water. Continuing on the tour, he points out that “water was the energy source. Without technology based on it, the history of Goslar would have been completely different.“
