Presentation of the results of the “ART & FASHION” photo workshop on the floor sculpture of Daniel Buren in the Wolfsburg train station. Many fashion photographers use public areas, squares and buildings as settings for their fashion photography. Starting from this idea and that of the op-art fashion of the 1960s, young people dressed in fashionable black and white clothing staged themselves in relation to Daniel Buren’s floor sculpture in the Wolfsburg train station, used it as a platform and photographed each other. In order to enter into dialogue with the appearance of the floor work, the photographs were all supposed to be taken in black and white, which presented particular challenges for the participants. On 24 August 2006 at 7 pm, the Deutsche Bahn AG invited the public to the presentation of the best photos in an exhibition in the waiting area of the train station. In addition, on this evening, the Lord Mayor Rolf Schnellecke unveiled two newly designed text panels about the floor artwork by Daniel Buren. A selection of the photos from the workshop was published on a poster that is sold at the M-Punkt and the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg. Since being redesigned in 2005, the main train station has developed into a representative entrance to the city of Wolfsburg not only for tourists and travellers but also for residents of the city. With the M-Punkt and the Autostadt Lounge, guests have an initial starting point and thus also spend more time in the train station building. The floor work by the French artist Daniel Buren plays a large role in the new appearance of the Wolfsburg train station. To accompany this artwork, the Forum Architektur designed a leaflet about the artist and his work in Wolfsburg and regularly distributed it in the train station. These actions have attracted lively interest since as a result of them, many visitors to the train station have first became aware that the design of the floor is an artwork at the same time. An outreach project of the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg. Cooperation and support: Forum Architektur, Heidersberger Institute, Deutsche Bahn AG, Kunstverein Wolfsburg e. V., M-Punkt, TRYP Hotel, jugend in der galerie e.V.
