England is regarded as the cradle of Pop Art and spawned numerous unusual positions on the phenomenon of the then revolutionary, new art movement.

Images along the canal

Artistic signage
The Rhine-Herne canal offers unlimited potential when it comes to excitement and inspiration. It can also be used for identification purposes, both as a line of demarcation and a means of bringing people together.
The “Bilder am Kanal” project – an outdoor exhibition of 15 large-scale tableaux that have graced the canal bank for the last 25 years – defines the Rhine-Herne canal as a ‘culture canal’, highlighting an artistic side to this wonderful resource. Working with five tableaux each, four artists make an impressive statement along the canal, freely interpreting the region and inspiring a diverse range of associations. The result is an aesthetic and intellectual investigation of the region´s phenomena, which every visitor to the canal can compare with and add to his or her own impressions. This accompanying catalogue spurs the artistic imagination and also creates a virtual experience for the observer who takes a stroll along the Rhine-Herne canal – a culture canal, now and always.
