Curatorial Statement

'All selected works contextualize the feeling of belonging: portraits, self-portraits, documentation of a community, or placeholders of human action. The often autobiographical approaches or historical events move and evoke memories or provide conclusions about current political discussions that affect us today. The human being, human action or the human body as a subject are the focus of this selection.

Although they are part of different series, each of these ten works has the power to stand alone, to stand out and to touch the viewer.'
