Boris von Brauchitsch: Google, the New Photo Machine
With Google Earth and Google Street View the visual tsunami has taken on a whole new dimension: thanks to the search engine with its images of our planet, be it from the angle of a satellite or a passer-by, it is possible to view every house in every street in every city – without anyone having selected or even looked at the respective images.

Exhibition: Aqua Claudia - Hans-Christian Schink During his residency at Villa Massimo Hans-Christian Schink explores the urban history of Rome along the Aqua Claudia. The Aqua Claudia was an antique aqueduct, supplying the roman capital with water. The overall length from the source to the city-centre added up to approximately 69 kilometres. For the bigger part of the stretch, the canal took its course underground, for the last 13 kilometres the water was conducted into the city via over ground arch constructions. In 38 AD building of the Aqua Claudia began under the rule of emperor Caligula and was finished under emperor Claudius in 52 AD. From today’s Parco degli Aquedotti to Porta Maggiore the remaining fragments can still be found throughout the south-eastern districts. Hans-Christian Schink follows the aqueduct through the urban landscape, depicting a cross...
L'exposition « 1h » de Hans-Christian Schink à la galerie Pinxit
Entre 2003 et 2010, Hans-Christian Schink s’est lancé dans la course du soleil. Il a voyagé entre les hémisphères Nord et Sud afin de fixer 1h de son cycle. L’œuvre de Hans-Christian Schink est à la limite de plusieurs genres, la photographie scientifique et celle de voyage. Entre science et art, ses images donnent la sensation de s’approcher de l’invisible, de saisir un instant d’éternité, d’harmonie, loin du bruit du monde, et d’en percevoir l’intime pulsation.
Coup de cœur de la galerie Pinxit à la dernière édition de Paris Photo, Hans-Christian Schink propose un voyage d’une heure avec le soleil. Notre œil est incapable de percevoir le mouvement du soleil ou la rotation...

Hans-Christian Schink - 1h, Galerie Rothamel Frankfurt
Hans-Christian Schink’s series of analogue, black and white photographs, titled 1h, were created between 2003 and 2010. Taken with an exposure time of one hour, they show views of the sun – cityscapes, deserts, oceans and mountains – in twelve respective locations of the northern and the southern hemisphere. The long period of exposure and the light’s intensity causes “real solarisation”, i.e. the sun leaves a black trace on the film, surrounded by a radiant aureole.
These spectacular photographs evoke a sense of surreal reality. The luminous recorded course of time draws the scenes into timelessness. They seem strange, sometimes haunting – hovering in a fascinating intermediate sphere.

Photography 1980 - 2010- Hans-Christian Schink
Hans-Christian Schink (born 1961 in Erfurt) is one of the most significant internationally active contemporary photographers of our time, and his works belong to numerous public and private collections world wide. The exhibition at the Neues Museum Weimar offers the most comprehensive exemplary overview ever given of the various parts of Hans-Christian Schink’s oeuvre beginning in the year 1980 until today. From the very start of his artistic activity, Hans-Christian Schink has worked on strictly defined series in regard to content that developed over a long period of time. The exhibition focuses on four thematic and aesthetic emphases of his photographic oeuvre. It presents portrayals of walls and empty interiors that negate central and interpretative perspectives, taking their place in the ranks of colour fiel...
VETO : Contemporary Positions in German PhotographySeit der Erfindung im frühen 19. Jahrhundert gilt die Fotografie als Spiegel der Wirklichkeit. Aber nicht erst mit dem Aufkommen der digitalen Bildbearbeitung und ihren Möglichkeiten der Manipulation wurde dieser Anspruch radikal infrage gestellt. Acht künstlerische Positionen jenseits der Wirklichkeitstreue der Fotografie stellt die Ausstellung „VETO – Zeitgenössische Positionen in der deutschen Fotografie“ vom 4. September bis 15. November 2009 im Haus der Photographie in den Deichtorhallen vor.
Die von Ingo Taubhorn kuratierte Schau setzt den Fokus auf Fotografie, die die vielfachen Möglichkeiten einer Reflexion über die Bedingungen des fotografischen Bildes zum Bildthema hat. Die ausgewählten Künstlerinnen und Künstler, die sich mit ihren Arbeiten im K...
EAST (for the record) - Carte Blanche VI: VNG Verbundnetz Gas AGThe sixth exhibition in the scope of the Carte Blanche project of the GfZK presents the current expansion of the photographic collection of VNG - Verbundnetz Gas AG and a cross-section of its collection of paintings and graphic art.
The photo collection of Verbundnetz Gas AG is one of the most significant collections of contemporary photographic art in Germany. It is a reflection of a period of social transition, documenting the radical political, economic and social changes that took place in the former GDR between 1992 and 2000. This detailed insight into the recent history of Germany has a focus upon landscape and industry, based largely upon a comparative view of the periods before and after 1989. However, key historic events of autumn 1989 have remained outside of the spotlight thus far. Viewed from different bio...
