the other side of town

... is the name of a group show that I have nine photographs in at the moment. The show is about youth poverty and difficult living conditions in the otherwise mainly prosperous city of Munich.

In a one year project at my (now former) university, 15 fellow students and I investigated "the other side of town" in collaboration with the pedagogic institute of the Munich school- and culture department in the context of the european year against poverty.

I photographed refugees in custody pending deportation in Munich Stadelheim, the city's main prison. The show is opened Mo - Fr 8am - 8pm until may 12th 2010, location is Lothstr. 64 in Munich.
