Artist Talk with Franziska Klose
Sunday, September 24 / 4 pm
at Popps Packing,
12138 St Aubin St, Hamtramck, MI 48212
Please join us for an intimate artists talk with Franziska Klose , an artist and photographer based in Leipzig, Germany who was first in residence at Popps Packing in 2015 . Klose is back in Detroit to share her newly published photo-book, entitled “Detroit: Field Notes from a Wild City.” The artist book presents the city as a complex urban structure in between the vision of the American Dream and its post-industrial reality. The current narrative of a comeback is contrasted with land speculations, water-shutoffs, and urban agriculture that aims to create food sovereignty in Detroit.
Popps is excited to host Franziska for a 2- week mini residency, 8 years after her initial residency and to celebrate the culmination of her may years of work and research to complete this wonderful book. We hope to see you Sunday!
