Adolescent beauty, sexuality and drug-induced action – Larry Clark radically and realistically documents the everyday life of US teenagers, transgressing bourgeois moral concepts. From the drug scene in his hometown of Tulsa in the early 1960s to contemporary skaters in Los Angeles his works capture extremely intimate moments. The authenticity of Clarke’s images expose the consequences of a dysfunctional society and question the social responsibility and moral stance of its members. The revolutionary and unique aspect of his photographs is – to this day – the closeness and intimacy between him and the documented persons and situations.
C/O Berlin will present for the first time in Germany approx. 200 works of Larry Clark. In addition to his series "Teenage Lust" and "Los Angeles", as well as videos, the main focus of the monographic exhibition is on collages, in which the artist combines found objects. In a similar way to a film or photo series, new associations and implications are created by supplementing the collages with newspaper cuttings, letters, posters and other objects. C/O Berlin will issue an exclusive publication on the occasion of the exhibition.
