Amaury da Cunha | Après tout

Après tout (After All) represents a turning point in the work of Amaury da Cunha.
His previous series, Saccades (Jolts), was somewhat luminous, infused with a sense of wonder facing the world. Après tout darkens in tone, as wonder gives way to bewilderment. Invading shadows are the backdrop for a photographer depicting himself as blinded. Death and sex are less allusive. A dog bares its fangs, while a bird of prey claws a branch. Yet shafts of light or a glimpsed road suggest that the end is not as impending as we may think. Continue Reading →

Lars Tunbjörk | Vinter

Snowbound streets, buildings and abandoned cars, a dirty snowman standing forlorn in a garden.
But interiors too, and portraits of people in their homes, at work, in cafés and at parties.

For his series Vinter (Winter), Lars Tunbjörk travelled through Sweden from 2004 to 2007 capturing the melancholy winter atmosphere of Northern Europe and recording the mental state that closes in on the people of Scandinavia in the dark months of the year. For Tunbjörk himself, the project was originally primarily a creative way to cope with his own depressive mood, which regularly beset him in the winter months. Continue Reading →

PICTURE BERLIN

PICTURE BERLIN, founded in 2009, is a nonprofit artist initiated hybrid residency/art academy which encourages participating artists to engage in an active discourse surrounding art and contemporary photography while simultaneously giving them a chance to develop their work. This perspective is unusual within a European residency context as the program facilitates each individual approach by offering close mentoring from internationally practicing artists and free-lance curators based in Berlin. Next summer, 2013, will mark the fourth Summer Session. PICTURE BERLIN is a 5 week program. Continue Reading →

Pietro Motisi | Cemento

Cemento is a photographic project realized with the intention to build a map; it is a work about Sicily made as a path of sensations and perceptions with an eye on the relation between the space and the identity of its inhabitants.

The assumption of this project is to create, quoting the Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri, a ‘zig-zag’ path in which nothing has to be precluded and in which the photographer has to follow his perceptions. That has to be made in order to find/create a track to follow inside a given space, no matter if it is physical or conceptual, and from that track let emerge some of the peculiar characteristics of the secular relationship that links humans to this territory.

IN TRANSIT – The View of the Other(s)

OPENING: Wednesday, 17.10.2012, 7 pm, Ostkreuz Berlin railway station, Sonntagstrasse/Markgrafendamm, 10245 Berlin
EXHIBITION:
18.10. – 30.11.2012

‘IN TRANSIT – The view of the Other(s)’ takes up the challenge of comprehending photography as a documentary, artistic and political description of the world and presenting it as a participatory project in a public in-transit room at the Ostkreuz Berlin railway station.

Curator Jaana Prüss (Morgengrün Kommunikation) situates ‘the view of the other’ in a discourse on our contemporary societies by drawing images by professional and art photographers into a ‘dialogue of views’ with images by fellow citizens, passers-by and visitors to the European Month of Photography Berlin (EMoP Berlin) who respond to an open call.
