The Gelsenkirchen Art Museum presents for the first time a new exhibition by Tobias Zielony, whose evocative night photographs of youth subcultures, post-industrial landscapes and urban realities make him an important chronicler of the present. In 2021, he took photographs in Gelsenkirchen and the Ruhr area during the Corona pandemic: portraits and associative motifs tell the story of a global state of emergency that hits hard even in Gelsenkirchen and paralyzes life.
