    Where is home?

     

    Since 2003 I am observing the demolition of Beijing’s historic centre, the vanishing of those little alleys, traditional courtyards, the bricking-up of small shops, Cafés and Bars, the violent disappearance of a whole district and its people, of lifestyles.

    Since may 2017 these sanctions have again gained a new sad climax.

    Alley after alley – demolished, bricked up. Naturally grown structures are destroyed within days, living- and business spaces are withdrawn, people forced to leave.
