Mapping the City

At the interface of photography and media installation, Tania Reinicke (*1976 in Daun) examines the relationship between image space and the viewer’s imaginatory space. The intense scrutiny of the relationship between architecture, space and the human being leads her to the city of tomorrow and with that to the question which signs of past, present and future can be acquired visually. Her field work begins in a city that has changed from village to megacity in a mere thirty years: Shenzhen in China is regarded as the workshop for the future.
