FAVORITE IMAGES / LIEBLINGSBILDER

1 Mar – 30 Jun 2017
Love loves small things. Love doesn't seek big pathos or emphasis. Love hides in the profane; in the shiny shoes in which one has journeyed or in the perfect fold of a beautiful dress. The really big things often lurk in the smallest of details. "I believe," the American poet Walt Whitman once wrote, "a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars." It is a poetry of dignity and nuance. This is a credo about the interplay of all things and the reverberati…

Vis-à-Vis

Vis-à-Vis

7 May – 8 Jul 2016
There is no photography. There is always only the photograph which gazes back at the viewer. Sometimes with a careful, tentative and questioning look; sometimes with a brisk or hasty glance. But it always offers something: an invitation to brief conversations. The viewer always looks, and the photograph, full of curiosity, gazes back. As in 1966, when the German reportage photographer Robert Lebeck took a portrait of the former German chancellor Konrad Adenauer at his 90th birthday celebration …

THE WINDOW - DAS FENSTER

THE WINDOW - DAS FENSTER

21 Mar – 13 Jun 2015
We alone are the insiders of our interior worlds. Within ourselves we feel safe and yet often isolated and sealed off. At the same time, hope is almost always contained therein: evident itself in windows, in the gates of the eyes. Each window is a link, a step between the interior and the exterior. The window functions just as with the lens of a camera - it is the point between the camera obscura and the outside. The point where light breaks through and illuminates another world. A…

DIE ABSOLUTE LANDSCHAFT

DIE ABSOLUTE LANDSCHAFT

The ABSOLUTE LANDSCAPE

14 Jun – 26 Jul 2014
The series THE ABSOLUTE LANDSCAPE resembles a play, in which light becomes the principal actor, time the author, and the landscape simply the stage and setting. Through light, as an analogy of time, the invisible author attempts to establish a visible presence. The performance of this theater of light runs over a quarter of a century. This concept dates back to the idea of the serial representation of time as invented by Muybridge and later revisited by Monet. Muybridge disassembles…

MEN / MÄNNER

MEN / MÄNNER

18 Jan – 15 Mar 2014
It’s a man’s world. James Brown even sang a song about it. Men were the ones who had invented cars, trains and ships. Men were the born creators. The “King of Soul” failed to mention however that it was also men who invented photography; men, who first created artificial images from light and chemicals. Technically enthusiastic homo faber. It was small wonder that such types initially found themselves mostly behind rather than in front of their new inventions; where the…

FRAUEN / WOMEN

FRAUEN / WOMEN

8 Mar – 25 May 2013
Women are a major driving force of photography. No sooner had French pioneer Louis Daguerre introduced the media to the public in 1839 than it began to be used as a method to portray female beauty. It was American chemist John W. Draper who ushered women into photography with a portrait of his sister Dorothy. And ever since, the suspicion has been that a wooing Orpheus lurks behind the cold technology of the camera - an artist whose intentions are to captivate and seduce women with photographs. …

THE FAMILY OF DOG

THE FAMILY OF DOG

31 May – 11 Aug 2012
Michael Ruetz has created, over the last 50 years, a unique body of photographic work. Superficially, these images might appear to pay tribute to the established forms of animal photography. But a second, more focused view shows that the reverse is true. Ruetz' pictures are as far removed from those of the animal specialists as they are from the images of classical painting. Some of the dogs in his photographs are shown with humans or with other animals, such as cows and cats, or with house…

Eye on Life

Eye on Life

Die unbequeme Zeit

29 Oct – 4 Dec 2010
The pictures of political demonstrations and from student communes in Berlin by Michael Ruetz have become a permanent element of German memory culture; hardly any conversation about the events of that time can do without a reference to these photographs – they have been stamped, like coins, into the memory. But for Ruetz himself these pictures were not imaginable without the other ones, there were no student demonstrations without the bourgeois daily life out of which these had sprung, no …
