Highways are more than mere traffic routes - they are symbols of speed and mobility; in 1930s Germany, they served propaganda purposes. Today they are central infrastructures. In this volume, photographer Michael Tewes devotes himself to the roads that have relentlessly carved paths across our country and through its nature, as well as to their special architectures. Often perceived as a monotonous stopover for people on their way to a destination, Tewes brings the highway into our conscious perception and shows it as an architectural building form in its own right. This monograph is the result of a six-year project and is published in parallel with the exhibition at the Deutsches Museum in Munich. MICHAEL TEWES is a photographer and artist. He studied in Dortmund, Potsdam, and Chicago. In addition to artistic projects, he works as a photographer for well-known brands. Tewes has won the Körber Fotopreis and the IF Design Award, among others, for his work.
