A helpless body is at its last gasp: the freight station. It transformed the neighbourhood and helped the city of Zurich to prosper. Though instead of exchange and openness, the future here is control and isolation, for the Prison and Police Centre will rise in its place.
Thomas Imbach wrings life and beauty from its destruction as he captures how the disfigured corpse is dissected into its parts.
The wasteland becomes the construction pit for the new prison. Voices of people who came to the city by an arduous journey emerge from it. Instead of finding a freer life here, in the future they could be detained on this very site, right outside Imbach's window.
