How to transform a non-place into a totem

In August 2010 a group of institutions (e.g. Wuppertal Institute, ecosign, Folkwang University of the Arts) organised the 2nd Sustainable Summer School in Jüchen (Germany). The participants were 20 design students from different countries. At the so called "Evening Talks" they met personalities, who apply in a creative way the guiding idea of sustainability in their work. The first Talk was with two artists, who realised an innovative project in the disadvantaged periphery of Hagen, a city of the Ruhr Basin. By Davide Brocchi, Cologne (D)
