From 22 June to 22 July 2018, the aff Galerie Berlin presents selected works by Bielefeld based students of photography. The exhibition project leads back to a photographic exploration of Berlin, in which the city as an architectural space, social action space and space of representation was examined. The eight assembled positions have their focus on the facades and structures of architecture, but also narrate something about the actors of the urban, who adapt the urban green spaces in different ways. They show mythical places in the city and search for the material overruns of Nazi symbols. In addition, they explore museological practices of the representation of nature in the urban context.
The aff Galerie in Berlin is a non-commercial photography gallery run by a community of photographers. It sees itself as a platform for leading contemporary photography, where up-and-coming artists are regularly presented. Due to its noncommercial orientation, it is independent of commercial and fashion trends in photography and free in the choice and curation of its exhibitions. These are supervised and co-designed by members of the aff Galerie as well as by well-known freelance curators.
