In klaren Nächten

HalleIV, ehem. Eisenbahnausbesserungswerk Lingen (Ems), 1999

Across the street of a former railroad building is a pub called “Lüttje Lage” that used to be frequented by railroad workers. The railroad company closed down 15 years ago, but the pub still exists even if its guests are but a few now.
Around midnight, a strange thing was to be seen across the road: a video-installation had been set up near a window on the second floor. So the men leaving the pub saw a young man turn on the light in a room, open a window and gaze into the stars. The visiors of the pub stayed outside and watched the stars, too.
