The current pictures at FENSTER61 are taken by Frank Machalowski. His series „Monster“ is showing well-known places in Berlin taken with long exposure times to create some kind of „monsters“ out of the peoples‘ rush through the scenery. Check out this beautiful photos on the FENSTER61 website.
The current exhibition at FENSTER61 is part of the 5th European Month of Photography in Berlin. Thorsten Kirchhoff’s photographs from his incredible work „Walking“ are shown in seven digital picture frames. The images are changing all the time so one can spend a long time looking inside the several spyholes and puzzling the story together. While the installation also works at daylight it is highly recommended to visit the venue at night.
Soliman Lawrence’s exhibition Old World Succulence was originally ment to be part of the 5th European Month of Photography in Berlin. For some reasons nobody really explained to us, the curator jury didn’t like it. I’m not shure if the term „curator“ is the right word here – for they only had some jpgs and some written lines for „curating“ submitted works – but that’s a different story, I suppose…
The good thing about the refusal is that this exhibition is now part of the new Movement for Gallery network which means that Fenster61 dances on both parties – European Month of Photography with the next exhibiton and MfG with this exhibition.
Check out Soliman Lawrence’s phantastic work Old World Succulence on his website. For the exhibition at FENSTER61 we chose a selection of twelve black and white photographs taken at the Berliner Zoos and the Botanical Garden.
I launched a facebook page for FENSTER61 last week. I’m still not keen on using facebook personally but it should be fine to get some additional promo for FENSTER61 and its exhibitions. If you are on fb feel free to like FENSTER61 here.
Holger Biermanns series Lichtenberg shows photographs from a Berliner district that looks like a village in many areas. The project was realized during an artists in residence stay at Lichtenberg Studios that published a small booklet with the whole series. It can be seen as a PDF here. The exhbition at FENSTER61 is up until 11th of September. See more infos here.
Currently at FENSTER61 – Christoph David Drange: Die Haut der Stadt
A bearded affair at FENSTER61… The current exhibition shows 110 self-portraits of Andreas Albrecht at different stages of shaving. Wow! Check it out here.
Unquiet slumbers for Wenke Seemann’s sleepers at FENSTER61… While Torstraße in Berlin Mitte is a quite noisy street anyway, the construction work right next to the window is still getting on our nerves. But inside the window we have the finest contrast to that – an installation of beautiful black and white photographs of people sleeping in their own private bed. Check out the series called „Mein kleiner Wecker tickt dazu/My little alarm clock is ticking to it“ here. By the way – real insiders may spot two photographers amoung the people on the photographs who have showed their work at FENSTER61 in the past…
The relaunch of FENSTER61’s website is online. Almost 70 exhibitions are in the archive by now, all about Berlin. It seems it became a real fine survey of different photographic views on the city. The new FENSTER61 blog wants to keep you update about acitivities of photographers who showed their work at FENSTER61. Feel free to add it to your blogrolls.
After the release of Henrik Verning’s book Berlin – Die Stadt und die Beute in 2008 I asked him if he would like to exhibit some of his photographs at FENSTER61. He exhibited some new work there in 2009 and some of the pictures are now part of his new publication Sampler.01/Berlin:Crash. Verning shows a collection of photographs with hard contrasts in grainy black and white. A wild mixture of steet impressions, close-ups, portraits, animals and night visions that drag you through a dark, rough and blurry version of the city.
The magazine is planned to be published as a limited edition of 100 on a regular basis. Here’s a video on vimeo that gives an impression about the first issue.
FENSTER61 is having a break. No planning in the summer => no exhibitions in the autumn. As simple as that. FENSTER61 will be back with monthly changing photo exhibitions in January 2012. Expected to be among the next photographers are Wenke Seemann, Thorsten Strasas and Torsten Schumann. Submissions are always welcome as long as they fit to the concept.
