From the perspective of twelve international photo artists, the exhibition approaches the complexity of Israel and the West Bank - the topography, the inhabitants and their everyday lives.

The initiator and photographer Frédéric Brenner describes the approach of his project as a desire to add new artistic motives to the pictorial worlds known from the coverage of the region. He was able to attract well-known photographers: Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peres, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Fox Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall and Nick Waplington.

All participating photographers are from outside Israel and the West Bank. Between 2009 and 2012, they spent longer periods in Israel and the West Bank. How they worked and chose their motives, they were completely free. The exhibition presents twelve very different perspectives.

The total of more than 200 photographs combine to form a multi-layered visual portrait. Issues such as identity, family, home and landscape come into focus, while the Middle East conflict is sometimes more and less visible. The result is a deeply humanistic and nuanced exploration, in which art, beyond the illustration of conflict, serves as a forum to raise questions. The observers are invited by the very different work to get in touch about the heterogeneity of the region.

QUERSCHLÄGER II – Künstler gegen die Mauer

7 Sep - 16 Nov 2019

On November 9, the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 marks the 30th anniversary of the fall. The Anniversary Exhibition commemorates the fact that sharp and often deadly firing took place on this wall

Opening: Friday, September 6, 2019, 7-9 pm

In the current political world situation, where new walls are being built and, fueled by populist currents, new splits and conflicts between neighboring countries are emerging or flaring up, the fall of the Berlin Wall is a highly topical and admonishing example of overcoming borders both in our heads as well as in concrete political facts.

The term ricochet is also used in a figurative sense for unadapted persons, lateral thinkers who do not swim with the stream. The exhibition shows works by artists from both sides of the inner German border. Some of them were active in Berlin before the Berlin Wall came down - such as Rainer Fetting, Luciano Castelli and Stefan Roloff in West Berlin, and Sven Marquardt in East Berlin. These wall-related photographs and paintings from the 1980s, some of which will be on display in the exhibition, are not only art historical interesting, but also visually impressive. The works of these four artists are supplemented by further positions that reflect on the one hand the history of Berlin from a distance, such as Holger Bär and Patricia Waller, on the other hand a younger generation,

ROBERT MORAT GALERIE

John Divola | Vandalism

BPW1.jpg

In the early 1970s, Californian photographer John Divola was one of the first to question the limits of his medium, exploring concepts of sculpture, installation, performance and intervention in his iconic, formative series “Vandalism” (1973-1975). Robert Morat Gallery is thrilled to be able to show this important body of work in Berlin.

Between 1973 and 1975, the American photographer John Divola – then in his mid twenties and without a studio of his own – travelled across Los Angeles in search of dilapidated properties in which to make photographs. Armed with a camera, spray paint, string and cardboard, the artist would produce one of his most significant photographic projects entitled Vandalism. In this visceral, black and white series of images Divola vandalized vacant homes with abstract constellations of graffiti-like marks, ritualistic configurations of string hooked to pins, and torn arrangements of card, before cataloguing the results. The project vigorously merged the documentary approach with staged interventions echoing performance, sculpture and installation art. Serving as a conceptual sabotaging of the delineations between such documentary and artistic practices, at a time when the ‘truthfulness’ of photography was being called into question, Vandalism helped to establish Divola’s highly distinctive photographic language.

John Divola (American, b. 1949), one of the most distinguished visual artists of his generation, earned a BA from California State University, Northridge (1971) and an MA from University of California, Los Angeles (1973). His images challenge the boundaries between fiction and reality, as well as the limitations of art to describe life. “Vandalism” (1973-1975) is one of Divola’s earliest series, predating “Zuma” (1977), “As Far as I Could Get” (1997) and “Dogs Chasing My Car in the Desert” (2004). His work exhibited internationally and found in important public collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, NY, the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Getty Museum in LA, the V&A in London or the Whitney Museum in New York.

“Vandalism”, the book accompanying the exhibition was published by MACK Books, London in 2018.

“For me, a club is a big abstraction machine that constantly produces pictures. They’re often on the edge of the visible, when the fog rises and you look up toward the ceiling and watch the lights. Intangible things shimmer and flicker through there.”—Wolfgang Tillmans

After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, clubs, bars, galleries, and studios began popping up everywhere, filling empty buildings, factories, and vacant lots with life. This young club and cultural scene became the driving force behind the city’s rejuvenation, pointing the way for a new generation of young creatives. And while techno was not invented in Berlin, what was happening in the city during this period at events like Tekknozid and in clubs like Ufo, Tresor, and Planet can be seen as a kind of “big bang”—the inception of the last major youth culture movement in Europe to date. The visual and artistic approaches of Berlin’s club life occupied a boundary zone at the intersection of video, film, projections, and music, offering for many aspiring artists new perspectives and spaces for communication, interaction, and celebration. At the turn of the millennium a new wave of clubs with parties that never seemed to stop drew increasing numbers of techno fans from around the world to the capital city, bringing new in influences to the city’s sound—a process that continues to this day.

The exhibition project No Photos on the Dance Floor! Berlin 1989—Today documents the history of Berlin’s club scene since the fall of the Wall and brings that history to life in club nights at C/O Berlin. The exhibition was curated by guest curator Heiko Hoffmann, together with C/O Berlin’s chief curator Felix Hoffmann, and includes works by Camille Blake, Tilman Brembs, Ben de Biel, Salvatore Di Gregorio, Martin Eberle, Matthias Fritsch, Dan Halter, Honey-Suckle Company, Erez Israeli, Romuald Karmakar, Steffen Köhn & Phillip Kaminiak, Anna-Lena Krause, Tilmann Künzel, Sven Marquardt & Marcel Dettmann, Marco Microbi, George Nebieridze, Alva Noto, Pfadfinderei, Daniel Pflumm, Mike Riemel Collection, Carolin Saage, Giovanna Silva, Wolfgang Tillmans, Lisa Wassmann, and Michael Wesely.

The exhibition catalog is published by Prestel, Munich.

Eine bessere Welt – unbedingt!
Fotografien aus der Sammlung Horbach

Eröffnung am Donnerstag, 19. September 2019, um 19.30 Uhr

„Lernen wir von fremden Kulturen und sehen wir ihren Reichtum.“ ist das Anliegen Michael Horbachs mit seiner Ausstellungs- und Sammeltätigkeit. Seit gut anderthalb Jahrzehnten sammelt er Fotografie und er sammelt bewusst gegen den Strich.

In der Ausstellung Eine bessere Welt – unbedingt! wird ein Blick auf die fotografischen Positionen Kubas, Lateinamerikas und Afrikas geworfen. 150 Arbeiten von 24 Künstlern werden gezeigt, darunter bekannte wie Sebastião Salgado oder Alberto Korda, aber auch in Europa noch unbekannte kubanische Positionen wie Juan Carlos Alom oder Alfredo Sarabia. Mit Beat Presser (Schweiz), Cristina García Rodero, Pep Bonet (Spanien), Jan Grarup (Dänemark) oder Thomas Dorn (Deutschland) sind auch europäische Fotografen mit ihrer Sicht auf Lateinamerika oder Afrika vertreten.

Michael Horbach fasziniert das unverstellte Interesse am Menschen – die fast an August Sander erinnernden Porträts von Marcos Zimmermann, die surrealen Bildfindungen von Raúl Cañibano oder die aus der mexikanischen Mythologie schöpfenden Inszenierungen von Flor Garduño.
Es sind Bilder, die sich mit den großen wie alltäglichen menschlichen Seins-Fragen auseinandersetzen. Die humanistische Botschaft ist klar: eine bessere Welt ist möglich!

Fotografen und Fotografinnen der Ausstellung: Juan Carlos Alom, Sà Bauer, Pep Bonet, Raúl Cañibano Ercilla, Arien Chang Castán, Hernán Díaz, Thomas Dorn, Miquel Frontera Serra, Flor Garduño, Frank Gaudlitz, Jan Grarup, Catalina Guiard Oliver, Hans Peter Jost, Alberto Korda, Lucana, Pierrot Men, Bill Perlmutter, Beat Presser, Cristina García Rodero, Sebastião Salgado, Alfredo Sarabia (sén.), Alfredo Sarabia (jún.), Martin Steffen, Marcos Zimmermann

Die Ausstellung wurde kuratiert von Hans-Michael Koetzle in Zusammenarbeit mit Michael Horbach.
Katalog zur Ausstellung: „sehnsucht – anhelo : Sammlung Michael Horbach“, Kehrer Verlag, 2017, Hrsg. Hans-Michael Koetzle, ISBN 978-3-86828-783-7, 39,90 €

Ausstellung vom 20. September bis 10. November 2019
Dienstag bis Sonntag 12 bis 18 Uhr | Eintritt frei | Ausweis erforderlich

GREENPEACE PHOTO AWARD

Willms and Piovano's projects address land rights, climate change and the impact of oil exploitation on indigenous communities.

«Patagonia - land in conflict» by Pablo E. Piovano

Born in 1981, photographer Pablo Ernesto Piovano traveled through Patagonia for the photo series Land in Conflict. The region of South America is known for its breathtaking landscapes, its glaciers and pristine forests. Piovano documented decades of land conflicts in Patagonia. In the region of Araucanía in Chile, the Mapuche defend their land law as Native Americans - even against the government, which accuses them as terrorists.

As long as the sun shines by Ian Willms

Born in 1985, Canadian Ian Willms works as a photojournalist for The New York Times, Time Magazine and GEO. His series "As Long as the Sun Shines" introduces the viewer to the consequences of oil sands exploitation in the Canadian province of Alberta. Against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, enormous clearing areas tear deep wounds into the land. With massive water, energy and chemicals, the oil from the tar sands washed, with catastrophic consequences for nature.
