Victor Kataev - 7,2 Tage


Stirnholz Verlag 2023

On average, patients stay in a German hospital for 7.2 days. During this time, you give yourself up as a private person and surrender to the regulations of a complex institution. The photo book shows photographs that express the melancholy of staying put. The focus of this work is not on illness or morbidity, but rather on the feeling of being at the mercy of a higher authority. Over a period of ten years, Victor Kataev documented this atmosphere of artificiality beyond everyday private life with haunting black and white photographs.
