Jürgen Nefzger

directed by Vincent Pajot
August 2023

For many years now, Jürgen Nefzger has focused his attention on the symptoms of the world's collapse, on weapons of life destruction, and on forces of resistance. His photographs and films act as revealers of a troubling wave of environmental transformation. More than simple accounts, his works are made more potent by the precision of the vision that comes with their critical stance. They highlight the impact of a political model built on economy and consumption. By photographing contemporary landscapes marked by industrial activity, Jürgen Nefzger captures the world's ongoing mutation.

Here, we are in a wild waste dump on the plateau de l'Arbois, behind Aix-en-Provence.


Director: Vincent Pajot - Production: Documents d'artistes Paca, with the support of the French Ministry of Culture as part of its assistance for alternative recording and broadcasting. In partnership with Réseau documents d'artistes. The film was shot in 2023.
