Königsberg / Kaliningrad – Joachim Koester

A Prior #14 / A Prior


Joachim Koester travelled to the city of Königsberg / Kaliningrad together with curator and writer Anders Kreuger and literary scholar Claudia Sinnig and discovered that Kant’s beloved hometown (and Hannah Arendt’s birthplace) was now covered with shopping malls and other marks of post-communist, capitalist influence. Koester elaborated his project The Kant Walks with new photographs for A PRIOR and produced a new series of photographs: Kaliningrad is Full of Holes. With reflections on Königsberg / Kaliningrad by Dieter Roelstraete, Anders Kreuger and Claudia Sinnig.
