Frauke Boggasch at Cruise & Callas May 18th, 2012 - June 30th, 2012
Posted 5/23/12

That sunny dome, those caves of ice — den Titel ihrer zweiten Einzelausstellung in der Galerie Cruise & Callas hat die Künstlerin Frauke Boggasch dem Gedicht Kubla Khan des englischen Romantikers Samuel Taylor Coleridge entnommen. Niedergeschrieben nach den Eindrücken eines Opiumrausches steht die Verszeile für Coleridges Spiel mit den Realitäten und für die romantische Kluft, die der Lyriker in die Beschreibung der Naturgewalten einbettet. Die vereinten Gegensätze, die sich mit dem Ausstellungstite... [more]

Showcase Watchlist: Bernhard Winkler

(Image: Bernhard Winkler, nachtbilder30, digital; © Bernhard Winkler) Bernhard Winkler (b. 1956) Photography is not objective and can not depict the reality, it always remains on the surface, always subjective and interpretive. It creates an illusion of reality. I want to move away from this illusion to a photograph of subjectivity, of emotion. How do I experience my environment? Isn`t my vision more dynamic than the static photo? I associatively connect everything together! My eye moves con... [more]

Alex Tennigkeit: On Our Berlin Watchlist

(Image: Alex Tennigkeit, Rotierende Moderne, 2011, Oil on linen, 60 x 50 cm; © Alex Tennigkeit) Alex Tennigkeit (b. 1976, Heilbronn, lebt und arbeitet) In my work I extract, from an omnipresent flood of media, images and fuse them with (art-) historical references to create works of high symbolic content. Parallel to the antithetic philosophy of the Baroque towards life (Carpe Diem and Memento Mori), my imagery meanders between concrete existential themes and superficial motifs of desire,... [more]

(Image: Dieter Appelt, aus Erinnerungsspur (vergraste Hände) (Weed growth of the hands), 1978-79; © Dieter Appelt) Dieter Appelt (b. 1935, Niemegk, Germany) Although Dieter Appelt works with photography, he regards his photographs as sculptures of time. Actually, he also builds objects, to be used in his photographic sessions, that afterwards become independant sculptures, because of their genuine and expressive character. His photography incorporates personal, meditative actions, e.g. his bo... [more]

(Image: Aura Rosenberg, Alexanderplatz, 16" x 47; © Aura Rosenberg) Aura Rosenberg (b. New York) An image from Walter Benjamin's writing is the inspiration for the series, titled The Angel of History. In "Thesis on the Philosophy of History", written shortly before his death, Walter Benjamin describes one of Paul Klee's watercolors: Angelus Novus. This small painting, which he owned, portrays an angel. As Benjamin saw it, a wind from paradise has caught the angel's wings and blown it backwa... [more]

(Image: Joachim Schmid;  Photogenetic Draft #32 ,1991, 38x28 cm;  © Joachim Schmid) Why are you so fascinated with other people’s photographs? Photography is one of the most important cultural techniques of modern society with everyday or vernacular photography being the most widespread, neglected and underrated. Billions of photographs have been produced worldwide and most of them are hardly ever noticed outside their utilitarian context. The anonymous production of vernacular photographs... [more]
