City Views. A subjective cartography of Frankfurt

22 Octobre 2022 - 10 April 2023
Historisches Museum Frankfurt

Accompanying "The Lust for Loss - Carl Theodor Reiffenstein (1820-1893) and Frankfurt's Old Town" and based on the examination of changes in the city, the CityLab invited artists, urban sketchers, and Frankfurt residents from preschoolers to senior citizens to capture contemporary views of the city.

A subjective cartography of Frankfurt is a document of changes and processes of change in the city in the 2020s with means of drawings and to describe them in short texts or with comments written directly in the drawings. Individual buildings, streets, settlements, panoramas and cartographies are (subjectively) documented through drawings. Current drawings can also be supplemented with a selection from the last 30 years to illustrate urban redevelopment. These current works are correlated to the historic city views from the 19th century.
