Decay of the Countryside

Social and economic changes in farming with the means of documentary and staged photography. It is about so called “farm dying” – as the land does not generate enough income far- ming is being given up. Over the years it has been carried out as a case study at a house with a history longer than 500 years in rural Upper-Austria, where farming was stopped at 2001. A later sub-series portrays a number of regional ex-farmers. The vast photographic work is accompanied by 2 experimental dance videos.
