GREAT INDUSTRY shown small-scale. From strongbox factory to sculptors' studio.

A student project within the framework of "werkstatt denkmal" ("workshop monument") on German Heritage Day

German contribution to European Heritage Days - 2015 theme: Handicraft, engineering, industry

One of the most distinctive buildings in the district of Wedding, housing an array of saw-tooth-roofed halls, is the former strongbox factory Arnheimsche Tresorfabrik. It was built in 1897 in the immediate vicinity of the Luisenbad baths as the second manufacturing facility on the densely built factory site. Today the brick building with its characteristic saw-tooth roof is used as a workshop by 400 artists each year. Students from the 9th form taking the elective Art course at the Diesterweg-Gymnasium school will explore the industrial monument as part of the project "werkstatt denkmal", and together with educators from the Mitte Museum, will research the history of the conversion from strongbox factory to sculptor's workshop.
