Janina Wick - Schöneweide
At the beginning of the 20th century, one of the largest industrial sites in Europe was built in Schöneweide. After reunification, most of the factories were shut down and mass dismissals occurred. Since then, the former working-class district in the east of Berlin has been characterized by stagnation. Along the Spree there are still many open spaces and industrial buildings, some of which are empty. These areas are used by young people to meet undisturbed.
Janina Wicks portraits of young people are on the one hand social portraits, on the other hand multi-layered metaphors for the phase of physical and mental development from childhood to adult and socially independent individuality. In the juxtaposition of the images, the people get a space that is free of prejudices and milieu assignments. In addition, the wildness and anarchy of the fallow areas emphasize an aspect of the young people who are on their own early on and do not want to be integrated into any fixed structures.
