Kesselbrink in Bielefeld

In the labyrinth of muslin canopies, in short repeating scenes, visitors meet the nail maker and show booth owner Julius H. Pottharst, a frequent guest at Kesselbrink in the nineteenth century with his ‘mechanical theatre’ and the former president of Arminia Bielefeld Football Club, Julius Hesse, deported from here during Nazi rule as a Jew. The figure of the town planner Julius Albert Talheimer was created following research into Germany’s largest underground car park project from the 1960s. Other subjects were interpreted more freely, such as Kesselbrink’s former role as pasture land for cattle, as a parade ground and assembly point for soldiers signing up in the initial euphoria surrounding World War I, or the seventeenth century medicinal spring which soon ran dry.
