Industrial architecture in Saxony. experience preserve remember
Saxony is rich in culture, its (cultural) identity is based upon trade and industry. More quickly than other countries Saxony transformed from an agricultural to an industrial state. Large format photographs by Bertram Kober accompanied by explanatory texts show monuments of the industrial era as well as successful reconstructions and secondary use concepts for industrial architecture all over Saxony and particularly in Zwickau. In addition a redesigned room, created by Bodo Korsig, an artist born in Zwickau, offers the chance to exchange ideas about landmark industrial buildings and discuss concepts how to preserve and use them.
