»Forms of Remaining«
Peter Bialobrzeski, Henriette Kriese, Nina Röder
The exhibition brings together three positions that offer different perspectives on temporary housing, familiar possessions, and homemade shelters.
Against the background of the Asian megacities, Peter Bialobrzeski’s works Case study homes and The raw and the cooked portray the human desire for a home of one’s own. The will to survive and creativity emerge both in slum dwellings built from rubbish as well as in the handcrafted “vernacular architecture” that utilizes found building materials.
The series Wenn du gehen musst (When you have to go) was shot in the home of Nina Röder’s deceased grandparents. Staged, absurd-seeming portraits offer a possible way to work through loss and grief.
In tandem with the refugee crisis of 2015, the number of attacks on refugee camps and shelters has increased dramatically. For her series Aus Angst um das Schöne (Out of fear for the beautiful), Henriette Kriese traveled all around Germany to photograph some of these sites. Kriese focuses on how these locations have been handled after the crime and what traces can still be found.
The exhibition is part of EMOP Berlin — EUROPEAN MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2018.
