bei Tante Herta - Requiem für eine Hafenkneipe (At Auntie Herta's - Requiem for a Tavern) - a Photobook
'bei Tante Herta' will be a documentary book that displays fragments from the story
of a seafarer tavern on an island in the North Sea. Its more than
one hundred year family history came to an end with the suicide of the last owner.
Photographs of every object from the strange collection of souvenirs
brought by seamen will be displayed as random representatives of
the regional and colonial history of european seafaring. Their stories, however, are lost.
These objets d'art died long ago.
Traces of their resurrection as part of the tavern-life though will be reconstructed
by texts fragments of regulars who narrate their memories.
