in: The city is elswhere. Revision of a dream

27.10.2023 - 01.04.2024, Stiftung Situation Kunst im Museum unter Tage, Bochum

"The city is elsewhere" focuses on places that can be described as places of transit and peripheral locations and thus usually remain invisible to conscious perception. These include backyards, streets, wastelands, train stations - places that are often used without special attention, but which shape the design and appearance of a city. At the same time, it is about the dream of freedom and individual development that is associated with the big city and characterized by countless images of urban life.

"For many years, I have been on photographic journeys in search of agricultural areas that are used privately for growing fruit and vegetables. What fascinates me about these areas, which are usually only a few hectares in size, is the manual transformation of the natural conditions, whose small-scale nature often goes hand in hand with great visual richness." (Simone Nieweg)
