Butjer – Everything and Nothing About Hanover
March 2019 · project with Goethe Exil · artistic direction
"Butjer" is a newspaper by 10 young photographers who moved to the city a few years ago to study here. They are all "Butjer", so to speak. They came “von buten rin” (from the outside), like the uninvited guests from the suburbs used to in former times. Or like the people of Linden, who proudly called themselves Butjer to stand out from the rest of the Hanoverians. But Butjer are also just little children who run or stroll curiously around. And maybe this fits best. Because the “Butjer” is an invitation to roam with us through the less-noticed corners of Hanover, to discover the unusual in the everyday and to be surprised by the small and large stories of this city. Because Hanover is different than you expect and more than you think.
