How intensively do photographers examine their motifs? How much attention to they pay to individuals who view their pictures? The photographer Thomas Bergner dedicates himself to this question.

CheckUP in LU

Tatjana Utz
Ludwigshafen am Rhein is a melting pot of many nations. The artist Tatjana Utz has selected 17 young immigrants, interviewing and portraying them in a complex, multi-media project, asking personal and socially relevant questions about values, home, identity, nationality, future plans and experiences.
The book documents the exhibition in Kunstverein Ludwigshafen; here in an interactive spatial collage, a social study and an art project merge. Interviews with the young people and a film allow us to experience different aspects of the project. Contemporary art meets the issue of immigration -- a project relevant to every single town and city in Germany.
