Bochum is in a phase of upheaval and searching for an new identity. Culture and education are defining the transition of the city more and more. Eight residents of Bochum talk about how the transition and breaks make themselves felt in their own lives. Break and transition are also essential for the design of the book. The typography and the pictures between the interviews clash against each other.
Statement of the jury
The creative interpretation of the radical change taking place in the city is particularly successful thanks to the mechanism with the smaller intermediate pages. This is a beautiful and interesting book that creates exciting contrasts, whereby the various ‘matches’ work very well.
