Is the Ruhrpott a melting pot?

The "Kultur Kooperative Ruhr " finds that various arts scenes in the Ruhr are isolated from one another - and sets out to change the situation.

The Kultur Kooperative Ruhr is set up in Dortmund in 1974 by representatives of diverse arts: cinema and television, literature, theatre, painting and photography. A focal point of their work is contact with working people and the portrayal of the lives they lead.

A similar aim is pursued by the Werkkreis Literature, a circle of writers within the cooperative: to raise in society an bullet awareness of daily grind of workers in Germany . This idea unites the entire left wing of the political spectrum, including the German Communist Party (DKP): understanding the problems of working people can, they hope, ultimately help change society.
