Jürgen Strasser - Beautiful new world

Exhibition at the Große Kunstschau Worpswede
19 November 2017 to 4 March 2018

The photographer Jürgen Strasser, who lives in Wiesbaden and Worpswede, provides an impressive view of the mega-metropolis of the world. He travels to Africa, Arabia, Asia and captures in unusual pictures the boom-citys and their barely conceivable dimensions.

In just a few decades, they have outpaced the European and US cities and shape the image of tomorrow's city.
Uncontrolled height growth as in Dubai-City or Shanghai Strasser contrasting with photographs of the proliferant suburbs, such as in Cairo or Hong Kong. In almost graphically abstract images, he shows urban dimensions in which the individual human being seems to no longer play a role.
