- 2020



Kreuzungen is a project investigating nine intersections (Kreuzungen) in Neukölln, Berlin, in 2020. The corresponding photographs, presented as 6x7 colour negatives in light boxes in the exhibition Neukölln Stories at LiTE-HAUS Galerie, were taken at night at the exact geographic intersections of six shops in Neukölln selected for investigation by fellow artists in the exhibition.

A street corner, a marketplace, a graveyard, and a residential estate are among the locations given focus in this project. Though these sites may seem passive, and indeed they were selected arbitrarily, they are representative of the intersecting spatial boundaries that both connect and divide the district of Neukölln - boundaries defined by race, ethnicity, and skin colour. The viewer is left to decide to what extent they are engaging in a voyeuristic act by converting the colour negatives to positive images through a mobile phone app.
