Structures and systems of order are the predominant themes of Berlin based artist Menno Aden (*1972, Weener), known for his cartographic photographic works. Aden's photo series deal topographically and analytically with our built environment. Although mostly absent, his works always show traces of the human being.

Panel Flats

Prefabricated buildings still dominate the cityscape in many cities of Eastern Europe. In "Panel Flats" German artist Menno Aden shows more than 100 windows of this building type. Without beginning or end, it seems impossible to escape this pre-design for life.
