In the intervention »Pulheim Castling« two square areas (5×5 meters) are selected. One is located in front of the Pulheim high school. The other is located in front of the abbey in the district of Brauweiler, a distance of 5 kilometres. With the help of a professional archaeologist the sites are measured, meticulously documented and then their locations are exchanged. Road surfacing, grass, asphalt, bicycle stands, a piece of fence and garbage bins change location. The cobblestones and their white marking lines are clasped in a steel girder for transport. They are carefully re-aligned in their new location.
