JANUSZ BECK - HART

02. - 05.06.2022

These mountains and forests are entwined with German history and Germanic myths: according to legend, unicorns lived here and witches met to dance. Emperors resided here and the peasantry rebelled. The seemingly untouched forests and mountains were places of longing for German Romanticism. But place names such as Elend and Sorge still speaks of the exploitation of man and natur. Under National Socialism, caves and forests were used as concentration camps. After the war, the inner-German border crossed the mountains, and currently climate change is destroying the forest cover over large areas. The forested mountains once gave the low mountain range its name: Hart. Over time, this became the region's current name: Harz. The series Hart deals with a wide concept of landscape, which includes socio-cultural, economic and ecological contexts as well as the manifold interaction between man and environment in the landscape. The combination of documentary photographs with collected plants and objects represents an archive that documents and reflects the identity and condition of a region and a society.
