Crimes or subsistence?

Along with the mining and industrial activity in the Minett, petty crimes also made their way into this iron and steel region. This video reunites nine crime stories about prostitution, food theft and smuggling from newspaper snippets dating from the First World War to the interwar years with linocuts made by Viennese artist Benjamin Steiner exclusively for this exhibition. This work is considerably inspired by the socialist artist and former miner Albert Kaiser (1892-1972).
