In (Cliché of a City, Venice), Inga Kerber portrays the people who visit and live in the city of Venice—a photographic inventory that holds up a mirror to the sell-off of cities, the global power of capitalism, mass tourism, and the struggle for ownership of the cityscape and the land on which it stands. Venice as a city is seen here as the quintessence par excellence of the concept of the cliché, a reproduction of itself. It exemplifies many cities in the world. The work is rounded off with texts by Salvatore Settis and Petra Reski.
