DESCRIPTION

The skin is our greatest sense organ, it keeps us in one. We realize different stimuli and if they are intense enough, they create a feeling, which then runs through every single layer and proverbially "gets under the skin". In most cases these sensations leave traces and emerging from that, they create experiences, which finally turn into memories. Photography is one way to preserve memories in a picture and make them visible for others.

For their new show "skinning" exp12's photographers have intensely dealt with those things they are personally touched by. In times of our fast moving everyday life, one hardly finds him/herself actually looking beneath the surface, close enough to examine the different layers of a society, a personality, a landscape or an urban area in detail. The exhibition itself represents different perspectives and therefore manages to create a patchwork kind of "landscape" of different topics, which the photographers emphatically immersed in. Selected works therefore offer a panoramic insight to contemporary socia constellations.

"skinning" is a story about yesterday's, today's and tomorrow's people and places. Every work forms its own chapter in the exhibition, holding notes about how others and the photographers themselves feel in their skin and surrounding. Based on true facts.
