Here the concept of "landscape” is distilled down to its meaning in the context of philosophy and cultural studies – in its original sense of "free land” and the Indo-Germanic root of the verb "schaffen” (to create). Thus, in principle, it is about the subjective perception and interpretation of a region as an aesthetic whole. Particularly in the unceasing aspiration for freedom, the variety of individual experiences of the landscape creates a rich basis for abstraction and reduction.
