For 25 years now, the Swiss journalist, publicist and entrepreneur has been collecting photography with the special focus on “allure”, which will be presented from May 28 to September 04, 2016 at C/O Berlin to the public for the first time.
The Susanne von Meiss Collection representatively covers all genres and styles in the history of photography — from the 1920s through to the present and covers currently about 400 works. It includes works by internationally renowned photographers, however for the main part it does give preference to the rather unknown classics. The personal selection ranges from Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Rene Burri and Henri Cartier-Bresson through Horst P. Horst, Irving Penn, Paolo Roversi and August Sander to contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin, Nan Goldin, Daido Moriyama, Richard Prince and Juergen Teller.
The catalog Allure will be issued to accompany the exhibition.
The Kehrer Gallery in Berlin presents from June 4 to June 18, 2016 Restricted Areas. The exhibition is about the human impulse towards utopia, about our striving for perfection through technological progress. Danila Tkachenko searched for places who have lost their significance and are now deserted. Left-behind are remains of human technology who remind of former efforts and at the same time document, how every progress comes to its end earlier or later.
Works by Matthieu Gafsou will be on view at Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung in Munich from 22 January to 24 June 2016.
Entitled LIFE IS NOT A BEACH, the new exhibition addresses the dark sides of life. One example is the oppressive world of drug addicts. The photographer Matthieu Gafsou documents these in his thirty photographs in an authentic and at the same time poetically sensible manner.
