My Munich: Ghost station Olympiastadion

In the vicinity of Munich’s Olympic Stadium is a train station overgrown with brush and weeds. The tracks stretch north and south, but go nowhere.

Munich played host to the Summer Olympics in 1972; physical reminders include the Olympiadorf (Olympic Village), Olympiapark, and the Olympiastadion (Olympic Stadium). In 1988, the train station “München Olympiastadion” closed to train service for the final time. Rail tracks which connected the station with the North Ring freight tracks were cut, isolating the station and leaving it to decay.

Since 2001, the Olympic Village has been listed as part of the heritage Olympiapark ensemble which includes the abandoned station. But will the station be left to decay? Or will the station be refurbished in some way to become a living memorial?

Historical maps of the MVV U- and S-Bahn system show how train service from central Munich to Olympic Stadium was utilized. S-Bahn train service carried passengers along the central trunk to Olympic Stadium via Hauptbahnhof, Laim, and Moosach; check out the system maps for June 1972 and June 1988.

Fotoeins Friday: A Muslim, a Christian, and a Jew decide to live on critical thinking and hope

Israeli artist Eran Shakine explores the similarities and differences among three world religions Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. With “A Muslim, A Christian, and A Jew,” the title of his exhibition plays on the first line of a joke which draws on stereotypes, and with his drawings, Shakine has a Muslim, a Christian, and a Jew – outwardly indistinguishable – explore the world.

The blurb above was paraphrased from the description at the Jüdisches Museum München (Jewish Museum Munich). Shakine’s clever insightful work was on display at the museum from 21 February to 21 October 2018.

Here was the selection of Shakine’s work:

•   6 December: M,C,J visiting some friends.
•   13 December: M,C,J one afternoon in the North Pacific.
•   20 December: M,C,J realize they don’t have to know everything.
•   27 December: M,C,J decide to live on critical thinking and hope.

I made the photo above on 2 June 2018 with a Fujifilm X70. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-fuG.
