Petra Trenkel's subjects are cities and the structure. Her interest lies with the phaenomenon of the square: how does a place come into existance, that is characterised by the absence of buildings and defined by its surroundings?

Auswärts documents paintings and drawings by Petra Trenkel from 2004 to 2007. The works depict cityscapes from London, Marfa (Texas) and Berlin. 

Besides these paintings and drawings the publication contains a ten-part photo series, which documents the slight variations in the design of hotel rooms on a journey from Chicago to Los Angeles.
