Poznan - force

During the Zamek Residency in winter 2016, Tapouchi created a photographic topography of forced labor camps in Poznan. Documenting the transformations these locations have undergone, the photographs show their immersion into the fabric of the urban landscape. After the Second World War, most of the camps were dismantled, destroyed, appropriated, or rebuilt. “Transforming” shows how the past intervenes with everyday life, and how the legacy of war disintegrates into everyday banality. These locations may be forests, schools, factories, offices, military zones, or abandoned spaces. Through daily practices history becomes both omnipresent and invisible.
