The exhibition “The Golem of Hereford and other stories“ brings photography, video
and sound together in an exploration of extinct localities which makes absence present.
“Wüstungen“ (Deserted Villages) explores the disappearance of villages and settlements from the former German-German border. By command of the GDR government, over 10’000 people were displaced and forcibly resettled from their villages on the border area. Houses, farms and entire villages were razed.
Anne Heinlein takes photographs of these sites, not looking for any remains however, instead photographing trees, bushes and empty fields. In her black and white large format photographies, she constructs quasi stages to be peopled with visions of the bygone.
The work “Wünstungen“ is supported by funds from the Bundesstiftung zur Aufarbeitung der SED-Diktatur (Federal Foundation for the Reappraisal of the SED Dictatorship).
