Guest Curator Talk | Kristin Schrader



Our 27th guest curator Kristin Schrader (Kunsthalle Emden) selected 10 paintings from our members' portfolios.

In a Zoom conversation on 24 March 2022, 20:00 (CET) she interviews the members she has selected and our members interview her.

Topics were:

  • How photographs can be used to get into concrete action.
  • How modern media like Google Street View have developed a kind of semi-documentary view and how we deal with it in media discourse.
  • In which contexts do we present photographs, make them sensual-bodily experienceable - by taping the floor and stepping on the photos, as in Alex Heide's case?
  • How history itself can be experienced anew through incidental pictorial documents and clarifies deeper contexts - on the enigmatic connections between visual impulses and the subsequent photographic presentation strategies.

Moderation: Klaus Elle
