Südpark II, 2022 (work in progress)
photographic series of 86 images, projection
The “Am Südpark” neighbourhood was the last addition to city of Halle-Neustadt in eastern Germany. Never included in the original architectural concept for Neustadt, it has a poorer quality of urban planning and living. It has a scarcity of open meeting spaces and lacks a functioning district center. The people live on the outskirts, and are generally forced to assert themselves through a lifestyle characterised by social hardship. In the summer of 2022, I spent three weeks in “Südpark” and met people on the soccer field, at the bus station, and next to the takeaway and supermarket. Thanks to Air Southpark / TWIMC for the invitation.
