With her series German Images (Looking for Evidence 1992-1994 / 2006-2008), Eva Leitolf “turns her attention to racist crimes in Germany and the ways they are discussed in society.” (for example, the caption of the above image reads “In the Saxony state elections in 2004 the fascist National Democratic Party gained 23.1 percent of the vote in Reinhardtsdorf-Schöna. According to press reports it maintains close contact with the banned SSS group (Sächsische Schweiz Skinheads), which has set itself the goal of ridding the area of foreigners.”) Coincidentally, her website is also a great example of a bilingual website.
