About ‘About Common Ground’:
Common Ground is an experiment in maintaining a continuous photographic investigation of states and movements in contemporary society. Particularly attentive to urban space as center for capital and revolutionary politics I naively try and encompass what seems ungraspable about a world connected by advanced capitalism while divided by national borders.
The larger body of work dives into conceptions of future scenarios of conflict materialised in the construction of Schnöggersburg – a massive urban military training simulation center currently under way in Germany.
The work has been showed in numerous galleries and cultural institutions around Denmark and the UK. The project evolves with each installation and is in a constant state of change and growth.
