Still life after the exodus

Photographs by Peter Jacobi

07/03/09 - 08/30/09

The photographic work of Peter Jacobi was the focus of the exhibition, which was dedicated to the built heritage of the German settlement areas in Banat and Transylvania. The artist showed large-format photographs of a cultural landscape from eastern central Europe. Jacobi visited over 200 localities for months and documented the state of preservation of the church ensembles. The design and implementation of the exhibition in large-format photographs were the result of these trips. He did this with the accuracy of a researcher, but also with the feeling and passion of the artist who strives for the appropriate preservation of this cultural landscape.
