Harry Callahan. Retrospective
Harry Callahan is regarded as one of the most innovative and influential 20th-century American photographers. By amplifying the abstract tendencies of New Vision in a lyrical mode evincing great sensitivity, he was able to overcome the prevailing realist aesthetic in American photography.
The French photographer Willy Ronis (1910 – 2009) is often mentioned in the same breath as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Doisneau as one of the foremost »humanist photographers,« his work centering on facets of human life. Many of his pictures have inscribed themselves as icons in our collective memory, shaping how we view the life and culture of our French neighbors.
In his nature images Frank Darius transforms the world into most delicate poetical structures. What nature really is, such is the question Darius is after. His works contend themselves with the smallest moments of living forms. Many of them show how twigs, leaves and fragile organic meshworks are nearly extirpated by snow, water and fog – and at the same time come to a higher live through this process.
OCCUPY SÃO PAULO
Since 2005 Carlos Cazalis has been photographing some of the world’s largest cities, Occupy São Paulo being the first chapter in his Urban Meta project. As one of the world’s mega cities reaching a population of 20 million, the city of São Paulo perpetuates a tremendous urban stress to it’s residents, especially in terms of habitat.
VERLASSENE ORTE / LIEUX DÉLAISSÉS
Swiss artist Sarah Hildebrand photographs rooms that have been abandoned temporarily, or forever, trying to pick up traces of the presence of the people who once occupied them. Her research is like a visit in her imagination to an extraordinary house, feeling out its sensual and poetic resonances.
Im Auftrag… Fotografien aus Industrie und Handwerk
Robert Häusser (b. 1924 in Stuttgart) is regarded as a seminal figure in contemporary photography. He is one of the few German photographers who managed in the postwar period to develop a signature style and achieve international acclaim. His pictures were already on display in museums in the 1950s and 60s, at a time when photography had not yet attained the status it enjoys today as an artistic genre in its own right.
NACH DER NATUR · CAMERA OBSCURA
The actor, speaker and author Hanns Zischler has for years enjoyed prowling around outdoors with a Rigby pinhole camera in tow. The use of this historical technique, which requires long exposure times, allows him to lend unique expression to the constant motion found in nature.
POSTCARDS FROM EUROPE 03/13 Work from the ongoing archive
In Postcards from Europe Eva Leitolf examines how European societies relate to the European Union’s external borders and the associated internal conflicts. Designed as a long-term open-ended search for photographic evidence, the archive focuses not on the suffering of undocumented migrants, which has already been widely documented, but on the structures and procedures with which European states respond to, process and administer migration, and on the measures instituted to control the Union’s external borders.
Gottmann’s photographic gaze focuses in on the heart shapes to be found everywhere in the urban environment, for example on billboards and t-shirts.
Mannheim’s special collection of modern sculpture, outstanding in terms of both quality and quantity, is the point of departure for this one-of-a-kind exhibition and research project initiated by the artist / curator Bogomir Ecker. With some 380 works, half of the Mannheim sculptures will be presented in unusual and intriguing perceptual contexts.
