In 2018, coal production will cease in Germany, marking the end of an important industrial sector that has shaped the Ruhr Valley more than any other cultural region for more than 150 years. Seventeen museums in thirteen cities throughout the Ruhr Valley have taken the fossil-fuel phase-out as an occasion to present the transregional art project "Kunst & Kohle" featuring works by both emerging and established artists focusing on themes revolving around coal and mining. The exhibition project is accompanied by an extensive publication, released by Wienand Verlag, Cologne. Nikolaus Gansterer will contribute to the exhibition "The Battle of Coal" taking place at together with artists Colleen Alborough, Janet Biggs, Danica Dakic, Mikhail Karikis, Antonia Low, Moritz Fehr, Denise Ritter, Jeremy Deller, Julius Schulze Farwick, Olav Westphalen, Andreas Siekmann, David Zink-Yi.
