« Ages, portraits of growing older » : an exhibition in Cologne
Taking 15 artistic perspectives as cases in point, the Ages – Portraits of Growing Older exhibition brings together a variety of, serially arranged, portrait projects. The artists from the USA, Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Russia, Austria, Poland/France and Switzerland were all born between 1923 and 1979. This allows for the work of several generations of artists to enter into a fascinating dialogue with each other against an international backdrop. The main focus is on photography alongside additional filmic approaches as well as painting.
The artists chosen for this exhibition photographed one and the same person, sometimes themselves, regularly and frequently. No matter whether it is Richard Avedon (1923–2004), who captured pictures of his seriously ill father several times during the l...
A New View of Architectural Photography from the National Museums in BerlinThe Art Library is reopening its newly reconstructed Kaisersaal (Emperor's Hall) at the Museum of Photography with a show of hidden treasures of architectural photography from the collections of the National Museums. Nearly all of the individual museums have acquired since some 150 years photographs. The genre of architectural photography is especially prominent represented. It was collected for the purpose of documenting ethnological and archeological expeditions, to archive architectural monuments or as an art form in its own right. An impressive panorama of the most diverse architectural motifs unfolds, ranging from the beginnings of photography to today: to mention but a few, there are images of bamboo huts from the Ethnological Museum, of temples from the Egyptian Museum, of Indian mosques from the Museum of Asian A...
Das Jahr 1989. Bilder einer ZeitenwendeDie Ausstellung zeigt in beeindruckenden Bildmotiven die sich überstürzenden Ereignisse und bewegten Momente vom Zusammenbruch der DDR. Neben dem Blick auf die innenpolitischen Verwerfungen, die Ausreisewellen und Demonstrationen dokumentiert die Ausstellung in Pressefotos auch die internationalen Bemühungen um einen Friedensvertrag für Deutschland und den politischen Anschluß der DDR an die Bundesrepublik.
In vier Themenräumen entfaltet die Ausstellung das Panorama der Jahre 1989 und 1990. Sie beginnt mit einem Rückblick auf die "bleierne Zeit" der achtziger Jahre, führt danach durch die Chronologie der politischen Ereignisse von 1989, um dann in zwei Bereichen einerseits die Aktionen der Bürgerbewegung hin zur friedlichen Revolution, andererseits den Blick des ...
Transition Stage Portraits and Sequences 1980-1990"Übergangsgesellschaft" (Transition Stage) is an exhibition of photographs produced in the 1980s in the GDR. The works, which avoid pathos, are at once poetical and punctilious in the way they depict the mood of those momentous years.
In selecting pictures for the exhibition the Academy was not primarily concerned with the fall of the Wall, the demonstrations that preceded it or a chronicle of the popular movement. The exhibition focuses on the far-reaching changes, atmospheric and political, that were exploding the canonical rules governing image and were informing a new subjectivity in the work of artists. One theory posited by the exhibition is that it was precisely these changes that laid the ground for citizens' protest against the norms and aesthetics of a system. So it is that the exhibition at P...
