Since 2008, more than half of the world's population is living in cities. The project „The edge of the city“ started 2004 as a cooperation with urbanist Wonne Ickx (Be/Mx) and became an audiovisual (re)search of the edges of Mexico City. We focussed on the people and their conditions of living there. The video combines different styles of storytelling, oscillates between documentary and essay.
It was the startingpoint for a series of works dealing with the idea of an endless cityscape.
