Hiroshima Capriccios
Leopold Federmair embarks on "regional journeys" as the autobiographical narrator of his "Capriccios". The mostly undefined destination is his city with its districts, outskirts, its outside. As an "explorer of the unremarkable", he is interested in the normal and curious in everyday life. He does without cars and shinkansen, his world is slow. He lets himself drift, lets chance decide, takes detours and unknown paths.
