Stadtrandzone Mitte — Center of Urban Periphery

How should public space be defined, in our times? - this question has been the point of departure for Klaus W. Eisenlohr's project in Hannover. The resulting film by the Berlin filmmaker and artist takes the viewer on a visual trip through the larger urban area of Hannover and shows portraits of places of various urban qualities.
This visual and spatial exploration is being complemented with investigations of "place-making": Public interventions by artists, scenes of everyday public life played by youths, and conversations with local city planers converge in a multi-facetted reflection on public space. In cinematography and visual montage Klaus W. Eisenlohr has accomplish his own personal film language, based on experimental documentary and avant-garde film. Thus, the filmmaker has conceived a complex film essay about everyday urban spaces in the modern European city.
Over the course of 6 months, his art project in Hannover, Klaus W. Eisenlohr invited other artists from Germany to perform in different locations in Hannover. He offered filmacting workshops for youths from youth centers, talked to architects and planners, and last not least explored the larger urban area with his camera. The film Stadtrandzone Mitte - Center of Urban Periphery has been sponsored with a grant by Stiftung Kulturregion Hannover (The Cultural Fonds of Hannover Region) and nordmedia Fonds with additional support by Kulturbüro Hannover.
