Eriz Moreno - Berlin (America)
Seeking to grasp the historical dimensions and landscapes shaped by humanity, Eriz Moreno interweaves history and the present day in his work. He embarks on a quest to discover all 30 towns in the United States named Berlin. After all, the mythos of America’s settlement by immigrants from all over the world, including Germany, was founded in its Midwest, on the wide open spaces of the prairie. Over a period of 43 days, Moreno’s road trip of more than 20,000 kilometres takes him across 27 states. This resulted in a compendium of 600 slides, with 20 motifs from each place. A selection of 240 images was made for this book, accompanied by a text by Franziska Schmidt.
