Denkmal Straße (Leipziger Volkszeitung)

From the 2nd to the 22nd of August 2014 the “Leipziger Volkszeitung” (see interview) published 18 images from the series “200 Straßen Leipzigs”. The series consists of several hundred photos taken between 2012 and 2014 of all streets and public spaces in Leipzig named after members of the resistance against the Nazi regime.

In connection with questions concerning the present culture of remembrance, the project was placed in the local pages of the LVZ. It thus appeared aesthecially like common news, whilst confronting and irritating the public with an intense and specific issue.
