Photography exhibition with works by Ansgar and Sabine van Treeck

The second exhibition this year at the GrenzBlickAtelier in ps-raum is dedicated to two special photographers, who are also a couple: Sabine and Ansgar van Treeck from Düsseldorf. The love for photography, the love for each other, the photographic professionalism, the feeling for the moment and the attention to detail make up the unmistakable essence of the images of the van Treecks. Two capitals - two countries - two continents. Almost 10.000 km apart. The one only 35 meters above sea level - the other above 2.600 meters higher. Nearly 4 million inhabitants in the east - against 8 millions on the other side. Both have the same allies - in Bogota is called a whole district after JF Kennedy, because he brought the country closer to the US and thereby much development aid money was released - in Berlin Kennedy set a political milestone with the words: "I am a Berliner". And thus put Berlin under the protection of the USA. So far, but so close. People - Houses - Animals - Roads - Plants. How equal the pictures are. Is it the globalization that brings the pictures together so closely, or is it because we live on the same planet? In a first joint exhibition project, images by Sabine and Ansgar van Treeck are shown. For over 35 years a couple and for over 35 years of life together with photography, here is the first merger of two points of view. Each picture consists of one part Bogota and one part Berlin - one part Sabine and one part Ansgar.Ansgar van Treeck is not only an artist, but also works as a freelance, professional photographer in Dusseldorf. His main topics include architectural art and documentary photography. From a very early age he began to experiment with large formats and photo installations. In one of his projects, van Treeck dealt with the photographic documentation of construction projects. Van Treeck also developed a digital photographic technique, screen-based photography, in which, unlike the photograms of Man Ray and László Moholy-Nagy, the photographic image emerges without a camera and is taken directly from the surface of a monitor. In addition, van Treeck is dedicated to art videos and video installations. Since 2010, he has increasingly focused on art videos and video installations created from single photographs. His artistic works have not only been shown in Düsseldorf and Cologne, but also in New York and Moscow.More information on van Treeck and photography: www.am-vantreeck.de/index2.htmlwww.am-vantreeck.deThe exhibition will be held on Sunday, 16. June opened at 15.00 pm. All interested parties are cordially invited to the vernissage. Afterwards the exhibition is open as follows: Friday / Saturday / Sunday, 21./22./23.

Mariengymnasium vehemently rejects alternative lunches at the Arnold Janssen School

From BERTHOLD BLESENKEMPER Too cumbersome, too time-consuming, too unrealistic: The Mariengymnasium resolutely rejects the alternative lunch program for the students at the Arnold Janssen School, which is proposed by the city administration for the planned city hall renovation. Instead, she proposes a container canteen close to the school. For director Wilfried Flüchter the way to Karolingerstraße is simply too long. The students would first have to be collected at noon and then accompanied by supervisors to the new refectory, according to a statement. The same applies to the way back, writes Flüchter.Zudem would find only 70 guests of the Mariengymnasium in the refectory of the Arnold Janssen School space. Tuesdays and Thursdays, however, 100 to 120 seats and thus time gradings are necessary. This would be an appropriate rest and recovery phase for these students. "In our estimation, this would mean that most of the students of the Marienschule would refrain from a warm lunch," the statement goes on. Instead, Flüchter advocates a container canteen near the school. The city administration had rejected this solution so far with reference to lack of space. "This is incomprehensible for us, as it would certainly be possible to set up a container canteen on the skate area or the parking lot next to the Mariengymnasium," said Flüchter. This is what the school board will do in its meeting tomorrow. The last word then has the city council. [...]

FDP considers term climate emergency for "ideological air number"

The Group of Free Democrats in Bocholt rejects the request of the Social List and the SPD to proclaim a so-called climate emergency in Bocholt. A state of emergency has serious constitutional consequences and leads to restrictions of fundamental rights. "Such legal terms should not be abused for ideological air numbers," writes Burkhard Henneken in a press release. Of course, Bocholt must also face the responsibility and challenge. And that is exactly what they have been doing together for years and also successfully, it goes on to say. "In the year 2009, the city of Bocholt was honored as the NRW Climate Community of the Future for its concept, for the practical implementation of measures for climate protection and for climate adaptation in rural areas.

Hospitals of Diakonische Altenhilfe from Hessen have founded the section "Employers' Association Diakonische Altenhilfe Hessen" (DV.DAH) in the Entrepreneurs Association Social Services + Education eV. The ten members so far operate geriatric care facilities in northern and southern Hesse. The aim is, as a employers' association together with ver.di - preliminary discussions with the union already existed - to negotiate an industry-specific collective agreement. It is intended to replace the previous labor law regulations negotiated on the third way with the member companies of the DV.DAH.

This nationwide employers' association has relevant technical expertise. Its members include social service providers from the care of the disabled to hospitals, whose owners are private, through the charities or church organized. "We have decided to establish a tariffable employers' association, in addition to the traditional ecclesiastical 'Third Way' new ways to one sustainable social partnership, "said Pastor Dr. Klaus Bartl, Managing Director of the founding member Mission Leben and spokesman of the new section DV.DAH. This had been specifically made possible by the Protestant Church and Diakonie in Hesse, so that now "church-level collective agreements" may be completed.
