WRITING ON THE WALL [catalog]

25.00

 

History reveals itself in the details. Inscriptions and visual articulations of the past, temporally estranged, yet spatially layered, are transcribed simultaneously on the walls of cities conceding as a form of ethnography. This compulsive archiving reflects both the undifferentiated society of the globalized world, while also exposing the cultural historicity connected to the details defining a place. The systemic and global documentation of city walls provides a field study of empirical data revealing the ethnogenesis, politics, religions and cultural truths of a locality and their connection to the landscape.
