It’s too bad Markus Neis’ website doesn’t provide English descriptions of the projects. “Folgelandschaften” is quite an interesting project, whose four sets show landscapes altered by humans, namely the former battlefields of Verdun, the area of the Allied invasion in Northern France, rubble heaps in Germany, and the former inter-German border. The basic question then is how does this knowledge change our perception of the landscape?
