Jakob August Lorent: Calotypes 1853-1861

Dr. Jakob August Lorent (Charleston, SC, USA 1813-1884 Merano) was one of the earliest travel and architecture photographers. He was one of the first ever to travel with a camera to many Mediterranean countries. Lorent took his journeys in a time when even just getting around and finding accommodation in these countries was an adventure, making it all the more significant that he also brought highly interesting photographs home from these arduous journeys.

Amira Fritz

Observe with a Soft Voice – Philosopher Gaston Bachelard once called himself a „dreamer of words, a dreamer of written words.“ Amira Fritz, on the contrary, is a dreamer of images, floating atmospheres, harmonic landscapes, gentle flowers, faces and people who investigate the observer as if they emerged from an unreachable, enchanted otherworld. Her photographs (just like Bachelard’s words) detach themselves from the heavy burden that binds them to time and reality and instead open up to the dream, to emotions, to a poetic geography where travelling is the ability of encountering without revealing.

Chapter II – The Conflict of Images

Chapter II – The Conflict of Images

(de) Wie der Titel bereits andeutet, möchte diese Ausstellung nicht nur verschiedene Ansätze und Praktiken einer Dokumentarfotografie präsentieren, die sich mit dem Krieg befasst, sondern auch über den Konflikt nachdenken, der mit der Produktion von Bildern insbesondere dort verbunden ist, wo es um die Darstellung von Leiden und Schmerzen geht. Raphaël Dallaporta, Giorgio Di Noto und Monica Haller sind die drei Künstler/-innen, die wir ausgewählt haben, um eine solche Reflexion zu beginnen.
