euregio – NL-DE-BE
One of the European regions, which are in competition with each other is the border area between Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. It is considered as a separate cultural area. A research project of the University of Applied Sciences in Aachen called “Euregio Charlemagne” tries to find the reasons for these differing aspects of these regions. Under leadership of Prof. Christian Uwer several authors of the region have tried to describe some aspects of their region in a series of scientific essays. Attendant there is a photography essay done by the photographer Anja Schlamann. These photographs document the different cultural physiognomies and they can be viewed in this exhibition for the first time.
