Warsaw Frankenstein

Warsaw Frankenstein

The artist Boris Sieverts is in Warsaw for the first time. In Cologne he runs his “Office for City Travels”. After Cologne, Duisburg, Luxemburg and Paris he now wants to offer the people of Warsaw a trip through their city as well. For weeks he is wandering with a backpack and a city map through areas of which everyone is claiming, that they are not worth a visit. He meticulously looks for anomalies, cracks and edges on topographical maps. In so doing he finds places that have eluded perception, the barren lands, the parking garages and the backyards. Ugly corners that nobody is proud of but still tell something intrinsic about a city.

CHRISTIANE BÜCHNER, born 1965 in Freiburg, Germany, studied at Berlin University of the Arts and at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.
