In his independent projects, the photographer Jakob Schnetz explores photographic possibilities of criticizing economic structures and mechanisms as well as representation politics. Fuchsbau Festival presents a selection of his series PLACE OF PROMISE. Herein, trade fair halls are understood to be cathedrals of the commodity world, sacred spaces in which customers of all interest groups are presented with the latest products, the most efficient services and the best know-how. Between standardized sceneries, live shows and the fierce battle for customers, the trade fair mirrors a globalized and consumption-oriented service society and unfulfilled salvation promises.
