German Coal Mine Exhibit Casts Eye Back at Dying Industry

ESSEN, Germany – An exhibition in Germany looks to cast a retrospective view back on the country’s coalmining culture, bringing together a vast array of artifacts, materials and products to mark the closure of the last German colliery by the end of the year.

“The Age of Coal: A European History,” at Essen’s Zollverein Coking Plant examines the daily lives of those who toiled away in the bowels of the earth extracting the substance so crucial to the Industrial Revolution and economic growth in Germany.

“The production and consumption of coal left its marks on industry and infrastructure, social life, politics, both World Wars and the European unification. In the Ruhr Area in particular, coal had a strong impact on the work, everyday life and mentality of the people,” the organizers said in a statement.

The exhibition coincided with the closure later this year of the Prosper-Haiel mine, the last working plant in the country.

Several such instruments, such as coal carts were on display at the Age of Coal exhibit, as were everyday objects such as water bottles.

The event runs from April 27 to Nov. 11, 2018.
