LEATHER – news from the ABANDONED tour ’15

“LEATHER – an abandoned leather factory – barricated for children”

I stepped in and found a man in a dark room working. He was the bricklayer completing his work. I asked him why he does that and if we can enter the building. He mentioned in a broken german that he bricks the windows, “because of the children – every weekend the police must come and search them” … but if we want to enter – no problem.
