Shortly after the real estate bubble had burst in the United States Spain was struck by the same fate. Until then high demand combined with a lax credit policy had lead to gigantic development sites and vacation homes becoming a reality. A reality that has long since turned into vast stretches of wasteland with unfinished houses, streets ending in the middle of nowhere, vacant apartment blocks and abandoned real estate development sites.
Gereon Wetzel takes us to a paralel universe full of absurdities. A guardsman looking after 30 000 empty apartments, sheep that are gazing between houses, a driving school practicing fuel saving driving on the abandoned streets of a ghost town. Wetzel finds images for the real estate and financial crisis that make those abstract terms understandable yet unbelievable.
