AM

Andreas Herzau

“AM”, the new series of works by Andreas Herzau, uses the example of Angela Merkel to examine the representation of female power and the relationship between politics and the public sphere. For his photographic investigations, over a period of years Andreas Herzau accompanied the chancellor and head of the CDU party at her public appearances. “AM” depicts the theatricality, the absurdities, and the realities of the political establishment; the loneliness, the struggle, the power, and the injuries the political profession entails. Herzau’s work mobilizes the collective visual knowledge of one of the most widely photographed persons in the political arena; using cropped and sometimes mysteriously coded images, he deconstructs rituals of public orchestration and lets unexpected details speak for themselves. With his black-and-white photographs, Andreas Herzau counters the inflationary multitude of images of Angela Merkel with an attempt to do visual justice to one of the most influential personalities of our time.
