This is our last theme in PABUCA and we would like to thank all participants for their passion for this project with great entries and discussions, all supporters for their likes, links and comments and all silent readers for their interest. PABUCA takes a break for a uncertain time. But don’t delete it from your reader. First it’s time to make something different and we would be proud, when you still go along with us.

Christian, Bonn:

Dawn: A man told me, that Meike’s sleeping room is on the other side.

Noon: A lazy family sunday on the roof of the “Bundeskunsthalle”.

Dusk: Deadly accident with a taxi of  an eighteen year old boy after the megaevent “Rhein in Flammen” in the Rheinauen.

Markus, Bochum:

PURCHASABLE LOVE     Prostitution and Sex Shops… …I guess in the same amount like in other cities.

HIDDEN LOVE     There are surprisingly many shops which offers kitsch in this area. Anybody deny to like kitsch. No one would ever bought something like this. Strange. But how this shops survive? 🙂

TRUE LOVE     True love led her to Bochum. She needed in deed some time to cope with Bochum…   …but now she developed her own love for this city. 🙂

“3”   Bermuda Triangle / Bermudadreieck

“8”

“1848”   Not only the 5 3 (my bday btw) in the upper left corner was important for Bochum. As well the 1848, as the year where the VfL Bochum was founded, got a symbolic meaning for the natives here. You can found this number as well on many license plate at cars.

INSIDE REHEARSAL ROOM     Inside Mambo Kurt’s (The Orgelgott) rehearsal room.

INSIDE OUR BASEMENT     What you see here is a typically Bochum basement. We don’t care about energy crises of increasing gas prices. We dig the coal by ourselves from the basement.

PLATFORM 3     Arriving in Bochum by train, this would be your first step on Bochums soil.

HEIMKEHRER DANKES KIRCHE     Priest August Halbe, five years of captured in the Urals, let build the ‘Returnee Thanksgiving Church’ in Bochum-Weitmar gratitude for deliverance from the prison camp. Together with 20 former prisoners of war they finished the construction in 1959.

SERVICE AREA     Arriving in Bochum by car on the A40 from Dortmund, the first you will see is the new (and Bochums first!) Service Area. It opened in November 2014… …and we are proud of it!

I remember of some great moments in 2014 and look forward to repeat them.

Markus, Bochum:

HOPFENGARTEN     Our extended living room. Crossover cuisine restaurant (Westphalia/World) with a cosy pub (they served FIEGE beer and broadcasted the VfL away games) and a nice beer garden. – But it closed now. We feel homeless.

MOTORWAY JUNCTION     Every time I use that motorway junction I am reminded of my childhood, because we used that one when we were visiting relatives. But all the times when the memories popped up I was wondering: why THAT one reminds me and not any other street? And then I got it. There is no pavement marking to both sides of the road and this make it look like 40 year ago!

GUMBALL MACHINES     Against all hygienic regulations and the Geneva Convention on Conventional Weapons… …they are still there: Gumball Machines

Just an example for more than 100 schools in Bonn, leaving imprints in the cityscape.

Markus, Bochum:

PRISON:   How must that feel like, to see from a barred cell window outside all these people at a home game to lie in arms, cheering and drinking beers?

RUHR UNIVERSITY:    … located on the southern hills of central Ruhr area Bochum, was founded in 1962 as the first new public university in Germany since World War II. Instruction began in 1965. Students: 41.000

UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCE:  Founded in 1816 as a Miningschool, the ‘TFH Georg Agricola’ is nowadays a university of applied science with courses of study for earth science, mechanical-, process-  and electrical Engineering. With its 2.000 students it’s a familiarly and pleasant place to study. How do I know this? I studied there and I loved it. Absolute brilliant liaison between students and professors.

Markus, Bochum:

 

Stufen

 

Wie jede Blüte welkt und jede Jugend

Dem Alter weicht, blüht jede Lebensstufe,

Blüht jede Weisheit auch und jede Tugend

Zu ihrer Zeit und darf nicht ewig dauern.

 

Es muß das Herz bei jedem Lebensrufe

Bereit zum Abschied sein und Neubeginne,

Um sich in Tapferkeit und ohne Trauern

In andre, neue Bindungen zu geben.

Und jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne,

Der uns beschützt und der uns hilft zu leben.

 

Wir sollen heiter Raum um Raum durchschreiten,

An keinem wie an einer Heimat hängen,

Der Weltgeist will nicht fesseln uns und engen,

Er will uns Stuf´ um Stufe heben, weiten.

 

Kaum sind wir heimisch einem Lebenskreise

Und traulich eingewohnt, so droht Erschlaffen,

Nur wer bereit zu Aufbruch ist und Reise,

Mag lähmender Gewöhnung sich entraffen.

 

Es wird vielleicht auch noch die Todesstunde

Uns neuen Räumen jung entgegensenden,

Des Lebens Ruf an uns wird niemals enden …

Wohlan denn, Herz, nimm Abschied und gesunde !

 

(Hermann Hesse)

RUHRVALLEY FAUNA:   As the natural inhabitants of the Ruhr-Valley this blue and white rubber ducks founded in 1848 the famous football club VfL Bochum. Okay, what means famous? ….but, which club can say that after 166 years, the best times are still ahead?!!! 🙂

Christian, Bonn:

Bonn isn’t coloured. No lovely gardens and balconys all around, no fancy fassades, no lightened advertisements. But I declare my love to grey. It devides shades, it emphasizes hidden colourspots, it select objects to wrap around. Take a second look.

Christian, Bonn:

The House of History (Haus der Geschichte) keeps the German history since 1945 alive with many relicts for all generations. Bonn plays a big role here as the Ex-capital of Germany. One of the high frequented museum attractions in Bonn.

Markus, Bochum:

1907 a.d. : Produced for the world fair 1867 in Paris by the steel factory ‚Bochumer Verein’ with a weight of 15.000 kg and a diameter of 3,13m. But this is not the story. – What I wanna say is: Heinz Schwalguleck opened his cheese dairy in 1907.

2000 a.d. : The city hall of Bochum was build in 1912. Eightyeight years later Markus married his Victoria in exact that building.

2011 a.d. : Bochums first tram got into service in 1894 and connected the cities of Bochum and Herne. In March 2011 Kevin Schwalguleck get caught riding the U35 without ticket for the fifth time and was charged with a fee of € 40. And so everything comes full circle about this little excursus in Bochums history. Thank you.

New means change. Old leaves its place.

Markus, Bochum:

NEW AUDIENCE: Within the EXTRASCHICHT (event for industrial culture in all cities of the Ruhr-Area) the ‘Bochum Sinfonia’ arranged an event at the Ruhrstadion. I guess it was a pretty new kind of audience with 7000 people on the East-Stand/Ostkurve. The motto was ‘Sing Along Football Songs’ played by the Sinfonia. – That was awesome !!!

NEW PROGRAM: Of course, this season again, the Prinz-Regent-Theater in Bochum published its new program. A wonderful small theater inside an former factory.

NEW DISCOVERY:   I mean, it was there for a while…   …but for me it was a new discovery to see the free SITUATION KUNST exhibition of Max Imdahl in some pavilions at the Schloßpark in Bochum.
