Dortmunder U, and the Goldfish Bowl Nov 22, 2012
„The Dortmunder U“ is a landmark of the city, not far and clearly visible from the station and from passing trains. It used to be the main building of a big and popular local brewery, Dortmunder Union. When the brewery closed down, the building was in danger of being demolished like the rest of the factory, but as it is a landmark it was saved and turned into a cultural centre, called „Zentrum für Kunst und Kreativität“. It now contains a museum of contemporary art (this museum charges an entrance fee) and various artists' workshops, a cafe, and various other instalments around contemporary culture.

The windows at the top have been turned into a supersize goldfish aquarium with moving 'fish' that shine in bright orange. At regular intervals they fade and disappear, and then return.

Isimply refuse to believe that they closed down a brauerei (sp?) in Germany. What sacrilege is this?
