Den urbana fronten – En dokumentation av makten över staden
Where sourdough-hotels , microbreweries and middle class moves into the suburbs different cultural associations, workshops and socio- economically vulnerable groups are forced to move out. Den urbana fronten – En dokumentation av makten över staden (The urban front – a documentation of the power of the city) is a photographic exhibition based on a photo book of the same title .
Photographer Katarina Despotovic has together with sociologist Catharina Thorn followed the gentrification of the industrial area Kvillebäcken at Hisingen in Gothenburg. Despite the fact that gentrification is a process often described as objective and as a natural progression , it’s really about politics , values and power.
Vernissage on Saturday, March 5th !
