Partytime afterwards

The exhibition Über Leben am Land delas with life in the country to photographic and artistic analysis on the basis of 20 exemplary positions. 

The works describe life worlds in village community, in the province and rural idyll between social diversity, alternative life concepts and infrastructural dissolution. They show how much our idea of life in the country is shaped by personal experiences as well as by stories and representations consumed by the media. The artistic positions show that village images and village reality are sometimes far apart.
