  2. Robert Adams: The Place We Live.
    Retrospektive des fotografischen Werks

    30. Juni bis 29. September 2013

    Der Amerikaner Robert Adams (geb. 1937 in Orange, New Jersey) gilt heute mit Lee Friedlander und Robert Frank als Klassiker der künstlerischen Fotografie der letzten Jahrzehnte. Obwohl sein Werk in jüngerer Zeit auch in Europa zunehmend bekannt geworden ist, kommt es doch erst jetzt zu einer ersten umfassenden Präsentation seiner Arbeit. Diese Ausstellung, die mehr als 300 fotografische Originalabzüge umfasst, wird nach Stationen in Vancouver, Los Angeles, Denver, Madrid (Museo Reina Sofia) und Paris (Musée Jeu de Paume) auch im Bottroper Josef Albers Museum gezeigt, als einziger Station in Deutschland. Robert Adams verbindet mit Josef Albers und dessen Museum in Bottrop eine lang dauernde Wertschätzung. Konzipiert wurde die Ausstellung von der Yale University Art Gallery gemeinsam mit dem Künstler.

    Wie kein anderer Fotograf des 20. Jahrhunderts hat sich Adams mit der Landschaft des amerikanischen Westens auseinandergesetzt. Der Westen ist bei ihm zunächst eine Region mit klaren geografischen Koordinaten – das Gebiet von den großen Ebenen über die Rocky Mountains bis zum Pazifik. Adams' Blick ist ausdrücklich sachlich, detailliert und versucht eine genaue Bestandsaufnahme. In schwarz/weißen Fotografien, die oft mit einer großformatigen Plattenkamera aufgenommen sind, zeigt er die urbanen Zentren und ländlichen Gebiete Colorados, Kaliforniens und Oregons.

  3. BUZZ-WORTHY ART TALK: Brian Ulrich on "Over 100 Years: Photographing Consumer Culture--Past, Present, and Future"

    With a keen eye for the aesthetically compelling, eerily uncanny, and surprisingly poignant, photographer Brian
    Ulrich documents the landscape of American consumer culture. Following President George W. Bush’s 2001 assertion that, “the vitality of our economy depends upon the willingness of Americans to spend,” the artist set out to investigate and record the supermarkets, malls, and big-box stores where so many middle-class purchases are made. Ulrich followed this series of work, Retail (2001-2006) with Thrift (2005-2008),
    an investigation of the second-hand shops where purchases take on subsequent lives. He concluded the
    project with Dark Stores (2008-2011), an exploration of the impact of the 2008 financial crisis. Ulrich’s talk will address the larger project these three series comprise--Copia, an endeavor that he describes as an “attempt to describe an economic and cultural trajectory, set in motion in the 20th century and how it evolved at the dawn of the 21st.”

    A John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, Ulrich has exhibited his photographs in solo shows at such prestigious venues as the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
    Ulrich’s talk is in conjunction with the Ulrich Museum exhibition "Stocked: Contemporary Art from the Grocery Aisles," on view January 19-April 14, 2013.

    Ulrich's was held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, 2013, in 210 McKnight West, Wichita State University School of Art and Design, 1845 Fairmount Street, Wichita, Kansas.

  4. "I am drawn towards something lonely, quiet and empty." In this video Trine Søndergaard takes us on location in an abandoned house, tracing the life once lived there. Meet an artist, who defies today's constant bombardment of images - with pictures.

    In the spring of 2013 Trine Søndergaard (b. 1972) had exhibitions in Copenhagen, Göteborg, Dortmund and New York, and her work is receiving growing international attention.

    In this interview Søndergaard talks about the path which has led her to where she is today, and how, at the beginning of her career she wanted to be a "real artist" rather than a photographer. But then she discovered that she could do something similar to painting with photography. The pictures became a buffer between her and the world, mirroring the world around her, as well as aspects of her inner life.

    In one of her series called 'Interieur', Søndergaard takes pictures of empty rooms. The life once lived there is gone, but by exploring the emptiness, you catch traces of the time left behind. "My work is about exploring the world and understanding myself in it", Søndergaard states. She underlines that her art has never been political and that she does not want to state strong opinions about things. As an example Søndergaard mentions her pictures from the Danish island of Fanø in the series named 'Strude' - a series, that portrays young Danish women in local garments and face-veils which are in some ways similar to burqas. Of course in a way this is a comment on the debate about the veiling of muslim women in Denmark, Søndergaard states. "But it is a visual commentary. I want my pictures to be open and leave room for interpretation."

    Trine Søndergaard was interviewed by Marc-Christoph Wagner.
