Grounds Rising

On former railway-owned grounds the “New Heart of Altona” is being built with a public park that is meant to integrate heritage protected relics. Only that past residents from crafts, art and music who had made use of the formerly neglected landmark buildings are definitely not meant to be integrated in the new rise of the area.

Kurze Zukunft I Baugrube 360

Brief Future

In the longterm observation of the Große Bergstraße in the quarter Altona in Hamburg activists, shop owners and artists of the surrounding neighbourhood describe the massive changes within their street. At the recent occassion of the first Ikea store within a central area of a city different visions and interests on urban development emerge. Demolition and new construction remind of already shattered gentrification strategies of Germany’s first pedestrian zone.

Fourteen people share their stories of fleeing from their native countries. By foot, on boats or with the help of escape agents, they were chased away by war, toxic gas, torture, fear and hunger. Some are still kids, strong only through the courage of despair, led by their hopes and wishes. Their personal stories of and experiences with their arrival in Hamburg, in the county of Pinneberg, in container camps, sleepless nights and the struggle with paperwork intertwine with a “banning space”, which subjects them to registration, restrictions and controls which are often a means to send them back either soon or sometimes even after decades.



Eine filmische Langzeitbeobachtung der Brücke der S-Bahnstation Veddel verdichtet in 12 Minuten Beobachtungen eines Jahres auf einen Tag. Der Ort des vorübergehenden Aufenthalts und der flüchtigen Begegnung bildet einen Laufsteg des Alltags in einem Rhythmus aus Warten, Stillstand und schneller Bewegung.
