Return of the Pilots

In the second weekend of ISEA2010 RUHR artists, realists and utopians convene under the motto Return of the Pilots for a meeting full of courage, scepticism and hope while taking in the view over the flat horizon of the Lower Rhine.

The city of Duisburg is home to Europe’s largest inland port, located in the Ruhrort district at the mouth of the Ruhr and Rhine. It has been one of the most important trading centres connecting Central Europe, Western Europe and the Rhine axis not just since industrialisation, when it was used for coal and steel shipping, but as far back as the Middle Ages – Duisburg was, like Dortmund and Essen, a member of the Hanseatic League. The essential reason for the ISEA2010 RUHR Duisburg location is, however, the city’s continuous work in the field of media art in public space, which has been presented here for more than ten years in exhibitions, festivals and major projects.
