Presentation by the artist :
"The narrative book Letzte Generation Ost deals with various lifes of a generation who were born in the final years of the GDR.
Central place in the photographic exploration of the different biographies was the housing area in Hagenow in east Germany where the photographer and their protagonists were growing up together.
Their families corresponded to the propagandized principles, they received socialist education in their early years and lived in the typical tower blocks in Hagenow. Naturally, since the collapse of the former GDR, much has changed. Interviews with nine selected representatives of that generation as well as portraits and various photographs create an impression of the memories and experiences of the « last generation east ».
This project comprises a 150-page book with a short portfolio of images riveted to the front cover, 9 independent sheets in the type of an intelligence record file (one for each family interviewed), presented in a box with the title printed on top.

Alain Laboile est de ceux-ci, dont l'apesanteur est à la fois une recherche, une éthique et une nostalgie. Quand le quotidien est...
