Discover the intriguing tale of 'E.M.T. in MSP.' Back in the 90s, artist Heinz Peter Knes, while still a student, began snapping photos of his younger siblings in their hometown of Fellen in Lower Franconia. Fast forward to the early 2000s, these captures found their way into fashion magazines, capturing attention for their youthful essence and a unique sense of connection to the world. Named after the siblings - Eva, Mirjam, and Thomas - and their home district of Main-Spessart, the project 'E.M.T. in MSP' was a carefully crafted concept aimed at preserving its depth and meaning, resisting hasty interpretation.

While the narrative of the siblings’ emergence into puberty and young adulthood is the beating heart of the work, the small Catholic town of Fellen in the Franconian hills serves as a backdrop with a stubborn agency of its own, shaping the lives of its subjects. Beyond these two central themes and sidestepping conceptual neatness, the book also features photographs of other youth and urban spaces, signals that E.M.T. in MSP expands far beyond its main characters . Firstly, his siblings and Fellen, secondly, youth itself, and thirdly, Germany make up the core focus of the project, however Knes also firmly situates the project within a broader historical and geographical conversation. The children are not confined within the context of the place or the art work. They influence and are influenced—they are creatures of politics and history, of family and state.

With essays by Bartholomew Ryan and Kristin Loschert.
