Lost, abandoned and forgotten

17 November, 2017, 9:00 am - 25 November, 2017, 5:00 pm

This photographic exhibition invites an alternative look at abandoned buildings. The images are collated by urban explorers, a subcultural community who discover, explore and photograph derelict buildings. They follow a simple code – ‘take only photographs, leave only footprints’ – to digitally preserve these urban relics and counter forgetting. These images belong to participants of a three-year research project that examined the societal value of obsolete buildings. This exhibit encourages people to re-imagine abandonment and gives voice to neglected heritage.
