Städtisches Museum Schloss Rheydt (Ed.)
JHQ, short for “Joint Headquarters,” designates the merger of various military general staffs of NATO and the British armed forces in Germany. The complex, built between 1952-1954 and scheduled to close in 2013, resembles a small town. German photographers Nicole Blaffert and Franz Wamhof lived at the JHQ over a period of two months, recording the architecture, landscape and people, and resulting in an intimate photographic document in the tradition of Atget and Evans. JHQ details the dissolution of a Cold War relic before our eyes. Additional texts from V&A Museum Senior Curator of Photographs, Martin Barnes.
