Welcome to HMKV's blog.

This blog currently documents a research trip to twelve former Soviet Republics for a new regional project of the Goethe-Institut (2015-17). Earlier entries document the "Afro-Tech and the Future of (Re-)Invention" research trip to Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria (10-25 April 2014, Anne Bergner and Inke Arns), and the INDUSTRIAL on Tour trip to five industrial cities in Poland (27 Sep - 9 Oct 2011, Thibaut de Ruyter, Inke Arns et al.)

The Sound of Azoty Tarnów (30.9.2011)

During the Industrial on Tour project, we visited the chemical plant Azoty Tarnów, founded in 1927, which today is mainly producing fertilizers (on the basis of natural gas) and plastics (on the basis of oil). The sound of this big rotating "pulverizer" was amazing!
