One Week About Clean Revolution by Leonne Cuppen
Paul Koenen, visual artist and photographer, grew up next to a heap of burned mining stone in the south of the Netherlands. Fifty years after the coal mines closes, he developed the idea to use mining stone granulate as material for public benches. In this way, memories are captured and material is loaded with a story. He is working on “The Memory of Maastricht,” a project to create benches from the rubble of demolished buildings and bridges with the understanding that all objects can be linked to a database of lost heritage.
