From a sound installation to a dancing avatar – the “LOST PLACES” art project is located at the heart of an urban environment, Leverkusen’s deserted City C shopping mall, and represents a new departure for Bayer Arts & Culture in collaboration with the Kunstverein Leverkusen.
The idea was to create a temporary exhibition of contemporary art in unused shop windows and business premises. For a limited time, the deserted mall will be a public exhibition space. The theme and title of the exhibition is “Lost Places”. Urban areas are changing and empty department stores can be found in many towns and cities.
