RAND unites two projects from the field of landscape photography. Both works deal with the developments and changes being wrought in the (landscape) spaces at the outer limits of the city of Munich. Verena Hägler’s SALTROAD is a photographic study of a transit zone running through an agricultural environment, a space beset with traffic congestion and existing in a state of flux. The photographic fragments produce a mosaic suggesting the wider character of the area. In Agglomerations, Nicola Reiter focuses on the edge of the metropolis as an area of transition from urban structures to open landscape. Armed with her camera, she went around Munich’s city limits, photographing what she saw. Her own series of images is supplemented with historical photographs that reveal the drastic changes that have taken place.
Verena Hägler is a photographer working with empirical urban research. Nicola Reiter works as a (book) designer, while publishing her own projects.
