Christo returns to Germany

After wrapping the Reichstag in Berlin and creating The Wall for the Emscher Park International Building Exhibition, Christo is back in Germany with yet another sensational art project. The internationally renowned artist will be using over 20,000 square metres of translucent material and 500 metres of rope to create his Big Air Package sculpture. A world first, it will be installed at the gasometer in Oberhausen and is a cultural highlight not to be missed.

Even though the Ruhr's year as European Capital of Culture is over, the region is increasingly promoting its appeal as a cultural destination and breathing new life into its former industrial buildings.
