The phenomenon border, boundary, limit, that is expressed in the German language in only one word (Grenzen), is the subject of this book.
The book describes different aspects of Grenzen. Not only customs frontiers or national boundaries are described, but also the limits of everyday life, limits between art and kitsch, between poverty and wealth. The reader who expects pictures that visualize exactly the text will be surprised. All different texts are confronted by photos of one particular phenomenon which is determined through Grenzen. The photos show German garden colonies (allotments) which are divided from their surroundings through plots, fences. Grenzen is a book that examines frontiers, limits, boundaries in a different way and that creates an associative level in the readers mind through the particular combination of text and photo.
