A Cancer still on shore leave

You still don’t know but since January I am living again in a single apartment in Dortmund Berghofen. Having the Phönixlake within an easy reach you can find me there at least once a day. So was I July, the 8th, too, the day of the Hörder Bridge Festival. But this day not just for fun, but on a mission.

Du weißt es immer noch nicht, aber seit Anfang des Jahres lebe ich wieder allein in Dortmund Berghofen. Den Phönixsee ein paar Gehminuten von mir entfernt, bin ich mindestens einmal am Tag am See. So auch am 08. Juli, dem Tag des Hörder Brückenfests. Und an eben diesem Tag nicht nur zum Spaß, sondern auf einer Mission. Weiterlesen

Ok, es ist Zeit, Abbitte zu leisten. Ich schulde Dir noch die Auflösung, was es schönes beim Release Event des Onlineshops von Amor, Trust and Truth gab. Ich wollte es längst verraten haben, aber ich hatte mir ein so cooles Konzept ausgedacht, für das aber mir dann aber eine wichtige Zutat gefehlt hat. Ich gebe Dir einen kleinen Hinweis:


Rockolymp Ruhrpott


Did you know that the Ruhr area has a very vivid rock and pop history ? No ? If not, don’t worry, me neither ! But know I know !!
I thought it would be a great start to begin the new year with a little bit of (music)culture. The Zeche Zollverein is apparently showing an exhibition about the Music culture of the Ruhr Area : Rock und Pop im Pott. And having spent during my twenties nearly every weekend at a alternative rock concert, this was a must see to me. Weiterlesen

A few weeks ago I found on the blog of my fellow Nordstadtbloggers the anouncement of the new project „Dortmund-all-inclusive“ which aim it is to bring the citizens of the different districts closer together. Martin Eder from the Planerladen e. V., who was also involved in the planning of this project discribes it as a „district-wide citizen meeting for solidarity and cohesion throughout the city and as one of 16 selected pilot projects of the funding ‚National Urban development policyof the Federal Ministry for environment, nature conservation, building and nuclear safety.“
The first of these 12 meetings was themed „Eving meets Hörde“ and took place at the Phoenix West on the 30th of August where the Skywalk and the old blast furnaces could be climbed by the participants.


As autochthone citizens of ‚Höade‘ this was a must-do for my sister and me!


Georg Goyert : Excursion and paper topic

Yesterday I attended my course about Georg Goyert again and I was very surprised to see that the number of students has halved over the Pentecost holidays. If this continues, we will soon only be three …
We discussed the rest of our procedure. The city of Witten would like us to organise an exhibition about Goyert and his work. That sounds nice, but means additional work for all of us next to publishing an anthology.

Gestern besuchte ich wieder meinen Kurs zu Georg Goyert und war sehr erstaunt, zu sehen, dass sich die Anzahl der Studenten über die Pfingstferien halbiert hat. Wenn das so weitergeht, werden wir nur noch  drei sein … Weiterlesen
