Cities are the anchors and guarantors of culture and civilization. The destruction of cities
is nothing less than the annihilation of culture, history, and memories of human experiences along with all its traces.
Titled "50 Cities 50 Traces: Against traceless oblivion" the initiated exhibition project is conceived as a global relay.
Klaudia Dietewich seeks out and photographs vestiges found "along the
way ". Although abstract, they evoke memories and waken associations. As
a "precipitate of life " they ask us: what remains of us and the world as we
know it? Her "Wegstücke" / "Along the Way" series is a call to respect and preserve the world
and its legacies as repositories of memory. These artworks are warnings against the destruction of
our cities, against nuclear weapons, which is the central idea behind the Mayors for Peace movement.
