ROUTE WORKS – Holger Mohaupt

Award-winning local artist, filmmaker and academic Holger Mohaupt, returns to the Fringe this year with ‘Route Works’. In previous years he has shown documentaries, exhibited photographs and led a special cycle ride (ArtCycle) around North Berwick. Holger’s particular interest is portraying our lives and routines, our relationship with the landscape that surrounds us. This year Holger is focusing on the local habitat, the environment of animals, insects and plants. On show at ‘The Old Milking Parlour’ on the outskirts of North Berwick will be a compendium of photographs, writings and a special video installation. Attendees are encouraged to walk/cycle to the venue if possible. Holger Mohaupt – – 07754 086544.
