raum- und zeit- manufaktur (space and time manufactory)


A container installation by Karin Demuth, employees: Matthias Duderstadt

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of cargo containers in Europe (on 2. 5. 1966 in Rotterdam and three days later in Bremen on 5. 5. 1966), the space and time manufactory in the former overseas port of Bremen was built.


The standardized boxes that changed our economy, our thinking and cityscapes, count  as a modern answer to the old question of time and space.

The artistic work is an playfully answer. In ten production steps containers are built and filled with the rare good time.

The normally windowless container of Raum- und Zeit-Manufaktur  be provided with viewing windows and – partially wrapped in burlap – a reminder of the port work before containerization.
