14 Prints on self-adhesive textile film, 90 x 60 cm each
The photographs were taken at 14 different housing cooperatives in Hamburg and shown as part of the exhibition Wohnen – und was noch? / Dwelling – and what else? at Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg. While the exhibition focused on how these cooperative housing estates from the 1950s to 1970s can be adapted to today’s needs the photographs were more interested in the current state of the cooperative houses as well as their already existing (spatial) qualities.
The exhibition was initiated as part of the show Together! The New Architecture of the Collective and curated by Ilka and Andreas Ruby, Leonard Wertgen and Marius Helten. It was first shown at the Vitra Design Museum: https://www.mkg-hamburg.de/en/exhibitions/together
