“Westpassage” is a project by eight artists who live and work in the Union quarter of Dortmund, Germany. This quarter has been affected by the decline of the coal and steel industry as well as the constant emigration and influx of its inhabitants. Special attention is drawn to the inclusion of its citizens and the presentation of their individual paths of life. The graphic pattern of the communication media points to the typical Ruhr area paving, which consists of square aggregate concrete paving stones. The roughness of these paving stones leads to an individual rhythm which is reflected in their patterns. The criss-crossing typography points to the varying personalities that meet and drift apart here.
