Publication on the exhibition Breaks and New Beginnimgs
Frank Menke (texts), Thomas Klingberg (photography)
The exhibition Brüche und Aufbrüche (Breaks and New Beginnimgs), which opened in Düsseldorf in September 2021, was very well received by the public. The Düsseldorf journalist Frank Menke portrayed people who had been affected by long-term unemployment in seven biographical texts that were well worth reading and traced their breaks in life. The Düsseldorf photographer Thomas Klingberg accompanied the project photographically.
Particularly remarkable was the openness and honesty of the seven protagonists who, by taking part in the project Breaks and Awakenings, contributed to breaking down clichés and resentment towards people who hardly have a chance on the first labour market. They talk about breaks in life, about social exclusion, ostracism, discrimination, dreams and wishes. The project sees itself as a corrective to the social prejudices about long-term unemployment that have been cultivated over the years.
