Due to the expansion of the A 40, the circumstances of the residents sometimes prove to be very difficult. Yet despite these passing problems, innovative socio-biotopes emerged formed of individual resourcefulness and social communities, solely on the initiatives of the people living there. Whether it’s goose-breeding or a dance club, the residents’ strategies shift between civil-anarchic home rule and the pragmatic use of the space available. Artistic works connect with the ideas of the people on site to form a special synergy of landscape, art, and everyday culture.
