Abstract / Description of output
This essay works with afterimages of the steel industry to explore the material legacies and many afterlives of industrial remains in Dortmund. Inspired both by Walter Benjamin’s writings on the afterimages of capitalist modernity in the Arcades Project, and by the afterimages of steel produced by Haiko Hebig, the paper gathers fragmented encounters in an account that evokes the materiality, textures, co-habitations and memories of Dortmund’s post-industrial landscape.
