Anoek Steketee: Dream City

Anoek Steketee: Dream City
SAINT-PETERSBURG  •  ROSPHOTO. State Museum and Exhibition Centre for Photography  •  Ongoing
Dream City is an exhibition project about amusement parks in diverse places in the world by photographer Anoek Steketee and writer Eefje Blankevoort (the Netherlands). During a trip through Iraqi-Kurdistan in 2006, they found themselves in Duhok, an unexciting town near the border with Turkey and Syria. Reports of attacks, kidnappings and sectarian violence filled the newspapers on a daily basis. Meanwhile Kurds, Arabs and American soldiers, Christians and Muslims, Shiites and Sunnis; segments of the Iraqi population that were submerged in a deadly struggle outside the gates, amiably rubbed shoulders in Dream City. The amusement park in Iraq has been the starting point of a journey through the constructed world of amusement parks.
