A Place of One's Own

For his first book Swedish-German photographer Hendrik Zeitler has followed three political co-ops in Norway and Sweden between 2004-09 – Blitz, Ya Basta and Kvarnis. The book is a socio-political study of how these kinds of alternative houses have become free zones for different political movements and debates. He also traces a kind of iconography and aesthetics that are born in these collectives. There is a certain life style, fashion and interiors surrounding them.
