Artist Talk with Marie Tomanova

Artist Talk

With the photographer Marie Tomanova – living in New York and born in the Czech Republic – and the curator Thomas Beachdel we talk about her journey from a small Czech town to the multicultural metropolis. Why did she as a trained painter take up photography only after her relocation? What role plays photography in dealing with her own identity as well as with the identity of young New Yorkers? And why do her pictures attract attention worldwide? Do they gain even more relevance in the current political development in the US? The discussion will be in English.

Photo Book Talk / Distanz Verlag

Photo Book Talk

Paul Hutchinson, Ralf Marsault, and Ashkan Sahihi gaze through the photographic lens at phenomena of urban culture and communitization. Nevertheless, their protagonists, subjects, and artistic approaches couldn’t be more different. In a panel discussion marking the publication of three volumes by Hutchinson, Marsault, and Sahihi, Distanz asks the artists: in today’s digital world, what is the value of analogue photography as a record of the time? What role do artistic publications play in this? And how can the medium of photography artistically document processes of urban change? Visit us at the publishing house and talk to the artists in person.

Artist in Action / Katja Ruge

Artist Talk

Seeing the beat. Hearing a moment. For photographer, deejay, and music producer Katja Ruge, photography, music, portrait, and pop are inextricably linked. A look at her haunting portraits gives us the feeling that we can see through to the inner core of the people photographed and their otherwise hidden character traits. It’s a skill based on craftsmanship: Katja Ruge learned her trade as a photo laboratory technician from the bottom up, having worked as a photo assistant in England and as a music promoter and art director before dedicating herself entirely to photography in 2000. With her subtle powers of observation and an intuitive sense of visual composition, Ruge has already created hundreds of iconic portraits for magazines, musicians, and artists.

FOTO-TALK: Auf der Couch

Gespräch

Blinde Fotograf*innen – das klingt nach einem Paradox. Ist der Akt des Fotografierens nicht unweigerlich mit dem Sehen verbunden? Die Ausstellung BLINDE FOTOGRAF*INNEN beweist das Gegenteil: Um visuelle Kunst zu erschaffen, bedarf es einer starken inneren Vision, ausgefeilter Technik und Teamwork. Im Gespräch mit dem Galeristen Johann König diskutieren Fotograf*innen des Fotostudios für Blinde Fotograf*innen über die Bedeutung visueller Wahrnehmung, über Kunst und deren Rezeption.

 

Mit: Johann König, Galerist, Susanne Emmermann und Gerald Pirner, Fotostudio für Blinde Fotograf*innen. 

Moderation: Katharina Mouratidi, künstlerische Leiterin f3 – freiraum für fotografie

Artist Talk

On the occasion of "Existing Elsewhere" exhibition, photographers Guevara Namer and Alaa Hassan will join in conversation. They will present for the first time to Berlin’s audience, and in Germany their artistic practices, which revolve around the visual investigation of topics, such as self-representation, affect, and exile; the experience of displacement; individual and collective memories as terrains where vanished realities transform, as well as archiving online and offline as relational tool.

Artist in Action / Miron Zwonir

Artist Talk

Hailed by Terry Southern as the "Poet of Radical Photography" Miron Zownir's photographic work has been exhibited in galleries and museums in several countries from 1981 on. His photos have been published in 6 photobooks and he was featured in many international anthologies. He took up photography in the late 70s during the hey-days of the punk-phenomenon in West- Berlin and London, delivering a tight portrayal of the movement and its peculiar attitude towards life in limbo between a utopian vision of anarchy and nihilistic self-destruction. After 15 years in the States (NYC, Los Angeles and Pittsburgh) he returned to Berlin. In 1995 he went for three month to Moscow to descend into the lower depth of Post-Communist society. From the early 2000’s on Zownir ventured for several photo excursions to Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, California, the Ukraine and Istanbul. He is also a filmmaker and writer of crime novels.
