SHANGHAI MUNICIPAL ABATTOIR (WT)
This project consists of photographs I took of the renovated Shanghai 1933 complex, which was – from 1933 on – the Shanghai Municipal Abattoir. The photographs in context with archival footage and historical documents arise questions of cultures / practices of remembrance and cultivation, multispecies-encounters and hierarchical structures still present. The constellation is also uncovering ironic coincidences.
This is an ongoing project I started to develop in March 2019.
