MINSK - Sun City of Lost Dreams
"MINSK, the Sun City of Dreams that has emerged from the Belarusian bogs and forests, is the outcome of the project to create an ideal city of the communist utopia. The fact that the project has been carried out within absurdist aesthetics and poetics, turning Minsk into an imitation of the Sun City of Dreams, by no means detracts from its uniqueness."
A series I shot during a visit of Minsk by invitation of Goethe Institute and Minsk Photo Festival.
Inspired by the book of Artur Klinau “Minsk. The Sun City of Dreams” (Suhrkamp Verlag/Berlin in 2006.
