ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS.- Witte de With is organizing a presentation as an introduction to the long-term project One Step Beyond - The Mine Revisited, by the German artist Lukas Einsele. Over recent years, Lukas Einsele has been studying the worldwide phenomenon of the landmine and its victims. Einsele traveled together with photographer Andreas Zierhut to minefields and other areas in Angola, Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Cambodia.
Einsele’s work explores the interrelationships between landmines and their victims against the backdrop of global politics, revealing his findings in the form of photos, graphics, texts and interviews. With the specific cohesion of the various visual elements and project components (website, presentations, publications and installations) Einsele strives to articulate a new esthetic and political space, in which a wide range of information and visual materials can be communicated and presented to the public in a distinctive manner.
