Goethe Institut Hanoi
Public Private Hanoi – Artist in Residence – Andre Lützen
In the central residential areas there is not a single meter of unused land. Ground-floor apartments are open to the street and serve as both living room and workshop. Sidewalks are taken over by the residents. Cramped quarters force people out of their houses and onto the streets. The heat in the frequently confining, often windowless rooms also plays its role. These conditions lead to an interplay between private and public. Public Private Hanoi.
The photo project “Public Private Hanoi” by the Hamburg photographer André Lützen plays with these combining contradictions. And so his projections, appropriately to the content, will occur in public spaces. Three images will be projected next to one another on a screen. The varying rhythm of the sequence and the changing conjunctions of images result in ever-changing possibilities of viewing and reading the images. Cross-references and contexts which individual images cannot offer will be possible. The images will concentrate themselves, build relationships, pass one another by.
