Fotografien zu Symptomen der Gegenwart
With works by
Nils Clauss, Wolfram Hahn, Bettina Lockemann and Kai von Rabenau
05th April – 31st May 2013 || Opening: Thu, 04th April 2013, 7 pm
ARD Hautstadtstudio, Wilhelmstr. 67a, 10117 Berlin
The exhibition at ARD Hauptstadtstudio presents four photographic positions that subtly comment on themes of recent political interest – energy politics, social networks, EU organisation and global financial crisis.
Shiny fassades, dreariness of administration in black & white, deep insight into private areas, and the proverbial drop in the bucket; the photography of the four young artists shine a light on visual aspects, features and symptoms of each particular subject and let one draw conclusions on their inherent structures as well as their modes of operation and action.
The photographs invite the viewer to reflect upon in which – mainly visually distinguished – framework social processes happen and how they and their structures influence our behaviour and perception.

Everyone in Berlin, Germany, is kindly invited to join the opening reception of the group exhibition FREMDUNGEN at the GALERIE WEISSER ELEFANT on the 20th of October at 7pm. This group exhibition will present Nils Clauss’ award-winning series URBAN NATURE alongside the work of Wolfram Hahn, Andy Rumball, Kai von Rabenau, Rainer Sioda and Hannes Woidich. The exhibition will run until the 17th of November and can be visited Tuesday to Saturday from 1-7pm (Auguststrasse 21, 10117 Berlin).
The title of the exhibition, the derivative ‘Fremdung’, refers to several different forms of perception of the other, the unknown, the distant. In German language it can be linked with expressions of contemporary socio-°©‐cultural discourses – alienation, disassociation, infiltration, estrangement, being disconcerting or outlandish – that can influence our life and culture and implicitly shape the notion of what we call home.
We become aware of our own identity by the incursion of something alien, which it threatens to discompose. The outside, the unknown is being demarcated in order to assert the concept of our existence. But what do we actually know about the construction of what we call home? Don’t we need the other to comprehend our own existence? And don’t we find a lot of our own ideology in the definition of the unfamiliar?
The exhibition Fremdungen, prepared and compiled by Daniel Klemm (UNCOMMON PLACE, Berlin), in its range of works mirrors the different strategies how to deal with the unknown, the seemingly strange and that what we cannot or do not want to understand. The artists show us their interpretation of what amounts to be the alien and the home: their own originally created ‘Fremdungen’.
