After Germany was “re-united” the German government spent a lot of money on bringing East German infrastructure up-to-date and, not surprisingly, that meant updating and enhancing the decrepit autobahn and train system. Hans-Christian Schink, born in East Germany, documents this process in a series that very powerfully unmasks the empty promises behind the whole idea.
