Ruth Stoltenberg Schengen

Schengen is a Luxembourgish winegrowing village that borders on Germany and France. In 1985, the first agreement to eliminate inner- European border controls was signed here, in the very heart of Europe. Today, in the period of the refugee crisis, this agreement has literally reached its limits. Ruth Stoltenberg was raised in this three-country border region and addresses the effects of the opening of the borders on the culture and everyday life of the people who live there. Do houses and front gardens reveal national identities? Or does this region shaped by winegrowing and agriculture have its own cross-national charm?
»Ruth Stoltenberg goes far beyond the interpretation of her self-determined subject matter – she creates her own narrative, a European visual novella on this easily accessible three-country border region.« (Rolf Sachsse)
