Joerg Brueggemann – Mas Austral

Joerg Brueggemann - Mas Austral

“In 1975 Bruce Chatwin wrote in his travel novel ‘In Patagonia’ that Ushuaia is a childless city with residents who cast unfriendly glances at strangers. Today you will find a different picture. Shortly after Chatwin’s visit a free trade zone was established which led to fast urban development. Whereas in 1975 there were 7000 people living in Ushuaia, today it hosts nearly 60 000. Most of them were young families coming North of Argentina looking for work with their children. They are also the reason why I went to the world’s most Southern city. I wanted to know what it was like being young while living at the end of the world.” – Joerg Brueggemann about ‘Mas Austral’

Friday Quote: Joachim Schmid

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

“The most striking feature of the new is the sheer mass. Photography was previously a mass phenomenon, but now, quantity is doubtless the outstanding quality. For a long time photos have been taken frequently and everywhere, but now photos are taken permanently and everywhere, (…). What is new is that we can watch them practically in real time.”

Jared Kuzia – The Back Bay Fens

Jared Kuzia - The Back Bay Fens

“Passing through the gardens on my commute I realized there was a series of openings in the
reeds. As the days went on, I began to notice men (ranging from homeless to upper class business men) coming in and out of these mysterious tunnels. Out of curiosity, I asked a man emerging from one opening what was happening in these spaces. He willingly replied that they were a series of tunnels used by both openly gay and non identifying homosexual men to meet and have anonymous sex.
I became fascinated with the way these men used the land, the way the landscape was altered and how they made their own mark on it.” – Jared Kuzia about his project ‘The Back Bay Fens’

Jared Kuzia was born in 1987 in Burlington, VT. He currently lives and works in Boston, MA where he is a BFA candidate at the Art Institute of Boston.
