Artist Talk

»Beyond the Ring«

Hannes Jung

Dear Friends,

I would like to extend a warm invitation to attend the third talk in the fourth series of ‘Beyond the Ring’ by Hannes Jung.

‘Beyond the Ring’ is an informal set of artists’ talks/presentations/performances by international artists based in Berlin and visiting artists passing through. ‘Beyond the Ring’ is there to provide the opportunity for people to meet and share their thoughts, ideas and work. If you’re interested in joining in, you will see that there is life Beyond the Ring in Berlin.

For a place, please RSVP Ethna at moc.l1594162201iamg@1594162201esora1594162201nhte1594162201.

For his talk at Beyond the Ring, Hannes Jung will talk about his work ‘How is life?’, to do with the high suicide rate in Lithuania and his ongoing work, ‘New right’.

About the series “How is life?

Death follows life. Always. A fact that unites all and everyone of us. As a young person I expect too die when I’m old, maybe when I’m sick, but definitely not now. So much still lies ahead of me. For the ones who are left behind, suicide always raises the question of life. Why did someone choose death over life?

The suicide rate in Lithuania is nearly three times as high as the average rate in the European Union. The reasons for each suicide are different. They are not an expression of personal freedom, but often affected by hopelessness and diseases. Alcoholism, unemployment, no perspective – and many other cases with reasons that are hard to find and even harder to understand.

My story “How is Life?” is not just about photography. It is about the people and their stories. I worked together with the protagonists and asked them to write down their personal story. These statements are an essential part of this project. I photograph life not death because death cannot be seen. Maybe you can’t take pictures of the wind. But you could try to catch the consequences of the wind, bending trees and rolling waves.
