On November 19, at 7 PM, Kurt Kaindl will give an artist-talk and tell about his practice and particularly his new project — Travel in no man's land — photographs along the former iron curtain from Lübeck / Germany to Trieste / Italy.
Geographically, the photo reportage follows the former inner-European borderline from Lübeck to Trieste. Kurt Kaindl approaches the former Iron Curtain from "both sides" — the East and the West - and captures the special atmosphere in artistic reportage photographs: he visits the landscape created by the vast no-man's-land, shows the changes in the cities and villages, and above all photographs people who still or only now live on this formerly insurmountable border. There are pictures that follow the traces of the border fortifications, document the destruction of villages near the border and depict the border landscape as a place that has not yet found its way back to the "normality" of the surrounding countryside.
