The Ruhr Area is said to be a grey place inhabited by straightforward people. That is just one of the common clichés poked fun at by this hand-drawn poster. These portrayals are supplemented by many details specific to the cities and locations, as well as by historical and cultural elements. The unusual map gives a diverse face to the region and its particularities, encouraging the observer to take a closer look at the Ruhr Area, even interactively. Besides being a wall decoration, the poster may also be coloured in.
