What does the city have to offer in terms of personal lifestyle planning and the developmental of society? Is it possible to identify and present a photograph overview of the city’s historic, aesthetic, functional, ecological and economic potential? These questions are at the heart of the HANSEartWORKS 2018 exhibition.
Artists from towns and cities that are members of the Hanseatic League Federation, are invited to submit photos of their “Future City” as part of a collaboration between The PhotoBookMuseum and the Hanseatic City of Rostock.
The PhotoBookMuseum will then collate the most interesting future images and present them in an exhibition to be held in the public arena. The photos will be exhibited both in shipping containers and on large outdoor panel displays. The central element of the exhibition will be a socalled “photobook factory” in which the artists from other Hanseatic towns and cities and visitors will be able to put together their own “Future City” photobook.
