Shoot: "The Abyss That Was Once Home" Exhibition in Germany (by Jordis Schloesser) Photos for the Press

GP1SUABR
For the next 20 years, the RWE Group plans to continue dredging in the Rhenish lignite mining area of Doerfer, resettle people against their will and devastate entire areas of land. A disaster - for the climate, nature and people in the threatened villages of Keyenberg, Kuckum, Ober- und Unterwestrich and Berverath. But the resistance is growing.

The photographer Jordis A. Schloesser knows the Rhenish brown coal area since her childhood. She returned again and again to the mines, power stations and villages in the region. By juxtaposing pictures from 2002 and 2019, she draws attention to the people who are losing their homes due to the expansion of the open-cast mine and to the growing resistance to the energy company RWE.

In cooperation with Greenpeace Germany, the touring exhibition "The Abyss That Was Once Home" stops in over 20 German cities.
