Wolfram Hahn - Burgbergstrasse
|Author||Stadtverwaltung Crailsheim, Ressort Soziales & Kultur eds.|
Wolfram Hahn addresses the history of the buildings and inhabitants of Burgbergstrasse in Crailsheim, Germany. The road passes through a former air base built for the Wehrmacht in 1936. Since then, the area has been used for various military and civilian purposes: the US Armed Forces had barracks there until 1994, the German military maintained an equipment depot, and housing was set up for refugees and people in need. Created between 2017 and 2019, Hahn’s series points to the continuities of these uses and captures the simultaneity of conflicting impressions by combining his own photos with images from private family albums and archives, as well as historical material.
