When one considers these photographs by Marc Marquez, it’s as if one’s skin has been removed. We see very sparse rooms, we not only see, but we can almost feel the coldness and the roughness of such places. These images were taken in the housing estates of the former GDR, where such blocks were provided under an “Urban Redevelopment Plan” and were scheduled for demolition in 2009.

Marc Marquez himself grew up in one of these houses, and it was he himself who stripped the interiors of any traces of carpet or wallpaper remnants. [...] The photographer took his shots at night, consequently the darkness seems to invade the interior of the room, perhaps as an allusion to the ‘black square’ in the painting by Kasimir Malevich. [Extract : “Dead Eyes Open” by Prof. Anna Zika)
