»Are You Happy?«
Göran Gnaudschun is interested in people and the life situations in which they find themselves: whether they concern social flashpoints such as Alexanderplatz in Berlin, everyday life in Hannover, or the no-man’s-land of the former inner-German border. His work “Are You Happy?” is situated in the eastern periphery of Rome. An area where living conditions are rather cramped, residential blocks rise like walls, and abandoned agricultural land appears out of nowhere. The concreteness of the portraits and the suggestive atmospheres of the urban spaces negotiate the present of the generally human.
