Group Exhibition


Curated by Nadine Barth

Anatol Kotte, Andreas Mühe, Horst Wackerbarth

What is it that a teacher passes onto his pupil?
When Horst Wackerbarth (*1950) started taking pictures, only analog photography was known. In 1979 he began his legendary Red Couch Series, by driving thousands of miles across the USA: actors, politicians, clergymen all took a seat – the series was a subject of talks, and broadcasts. Just as Anatol Kotte (*1963) started to take pictures, the focus was on the technique: to capture the perfect portrait in the studio, to set the perfect lighting. As an assistant, Kotte repeatedly worked for Horst Wackerbarth, before he became independent in 1988. He photographed Rihanna, Geraldine Chaplin, John Lurie, and numerous politicians. When Andreas Mühe (*1979) started taking pictures, the wall had fallen. Among many things, he assisted Anatol Kotte in Hamburg, until 2001, when he became independent. Although one can find many portraits in his OEvre, he is known by his series beyond the studio which deal with history, tradition, attitude and power.

The exhibition is part of EMOP Berlin — EUROPEAN MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2018.
