In humorous, melancholic, abstract, nostalgic, narrative, conceptual and collaborative works we meet namesakes, neighbours, soul mates, displaced people, disadvantaged people, our own families – and always ourselves.

READING

Accompanying event to the exhibition WOMEN ON THE MOVE – Eastern Europe between Tradition and Action

In November, we look forward to award-winning author Żanna Słoniowska, who will read from her book Das Licht der Frauen.

In a house in the middle of Lviv live four women who love each other as much as they hate each other. They share their desire for freedom, their rebelliousness – and their unhappy loves. Until the day that changes everything: Marianna is shot dead in the street. From the window, her daughter watches as the funeral procession turns into a demonstration. Marianna was not only a celebrated singer, but also an activist in the fight for an independent Ukraine. Under the same window, years later, is a man who brings Marianna’s daughter closer to her hometown – and to her mother, who died far too young. Against the backdrop of Lviv’s turbulent history, Żanna Słoniowska tells of mothers and daughters, of private and social revolts, the unconditional belief in freedom, emancipation and love (for information, see Kampa Verlag).

Admission 8 € | reduced 5 €. The event will be held in German and English!
The number of participants is limited, so we recommend booking an online ticket, which you can get here.

FOTO-TALK

Views on Eastern Europe

Discussion with Prof. Dr. Monica Rüthers (expert on Eastern European history, University of Hamburg) and Agata Szymanska-Medina (photographer), presentation: Gemma Pörzgen (journalist specializing in Eastern Europe and foreign policy).

Many photos from Eastern Europe follow common stereotypes and clichés. They often show poverty and misery and thus convey impressions of an ongoing crisis. In addition, countries as different as Armenia, Belarus or Romania seem strangely alike in some photographic works, as if a corresponding filter had been applied to the images.

Why do we encounter the same images over and over again? Are they meant to confirm the corresponding clichés and thus the expectations of Western viewers? Is it mainly such images that are in demand in the editorial offices? How can we succeed in breaking such stereotypical views and develop a different perspective?

Admission 8 € | reduced 5 €. The event will be held in German!
The number of participants is limited, so we recommend booking an online ticket, which you can get here.

Opening: Women on the Move – Eastern Europe between Tradition and Action

We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition

WOMEN ON THE MOVE
Eastern Europe between Tradition and Action

With works by: Maria Kapajeva, Natalia Kepesz, Justyna Mielnikiewicz, Oksana Parafeniuk, Alicja Rogalska, Violetta Savchits, Elena Subach, Agata Szymanska-Medina, Tatsiana Tkachova

Introduction: Miriam Zlobinski, the curator of the exhibition, in conversation with the photographers Maria Kapajeva and Tatsiana Tkachova.

Femen in Ukraine, Pussy Riot in Russia, the Women’s Marches 2020 in Belarus, as well as the struggles against the abortion paragraph in Poland: something is happening in Eastern Europe. For years, women have been drawing attention to themselves with political protests and high-profile actions. Internationally, they are perceived as political actors, publicly shattering the traditional clichés of women as workers, mothers or sex objects.

Women in Eastern Europe have their own history of socialisation: for more than forty years they were considered equal under communism – but usually the sole responsibility for housework and child rearing was added to their gainful employment. Strongly defined gender roles in everyday life appear to be incompatible with the self-image of a new generation of women. Today, the stereotypes have become shaky, or at least somewhat unstable. How do these women see themselves? How do we see them?

In the exhibition Women on the Move, nine female photographers document socio-political changes, but also individual experiences in their countries of origin. Their works take a differentiated look at the current situation and the historical legacy of women in Eastern Europe.

The exhibition was curated by Miriam Zlobinski, Visual Historian.

Salon ReVue: What we see is accusable

From now on and at regular intervals, Salon ReVue will give a space to current and relevant topics from ReVue Magazine.

New scientific findings and perspectives, innovative ideas and of course photography and questions of perception will determine the events. Representatives from the field will enter into dialogue with scientists and exchange ideas with the audience. In this way, the evenings will become joint walks between the disciplines.

In the second Salon ReVue, the topic “What we see is accusable”. 
The depiction of nudity and sensuality has caused outrage over the centuries. Just as constantly, sometimes more or sometimes less explicit photographs are created and published. Scandal and self-empowerment, taboo and identification – what is it about the depiction of physicality, eroticism and sexuality in photography and where are the boundaries to punishability?

Karl-Heinz Steinle (ReVue) discusses with publisher Claudia Gehrke and photographer and Nominee of MAGNUM Photos Myriam Boulos.

In the more than 40 years since founding her konkursbuch publishing house, Claudia Gehrke has been testing the possibilities and limits of visualisations and texts around the topics of gender, the body, desire, sex and eroticism. She has been investigated several times for distributing pornography in words and pictures.

Myriam Boulos lives in Beirut, works with documentary and artistic photography and was co-founder of the bilingual feminist magazine Al Hayya. Photographs from her current series Sexual Fantasies Censored can be seen at the BERLIN PHOTO WEEK in the exhibition Jetzt: Magnum Photos.

Admission 8 € | reduced 5 €

FOTO-Talk

Talk with the photographers Maika Elan (Ho-Chi-Minh-City) and Julia Gunther (Amsterdam), presentation: Ben Miller (Board Schwules Museum Berlin).

In Cape Town, South Africa, black lesbians have created their own world with the Miss Lesbian Beauty Pageant in the township of Khayelitsha. Like ballroom culture in New York, these contests are queer reconstructions that shake the pillars of heteronormativity. In photographer Julia Gunther’s series Rainbow Girls, we see how black queers have defied homophobia and apartheid by creating a picturesque aesthetic in an ephemeral space. Gunther documents a marginalised group that is disproportionately exposed to sexual assault. But the power of these photographs lies in their emphasis on joy: the photo series is an act of resistance that invites black queer women to shed their traumas and show themselves in their full beauty and authenticity.

In the documentary work The Pink Choice by photographer Maika Elan, shot in the homes of her protagonists, queer people do something that is rarely the case in queer photography: they relax. Motivated by a desire to explore homosexuality in her native Vietnam, Elan’s photographs portray the everyday intimacy between queer people. In the privacy of their living spaces, her subjects follow the rhythm of their lives and loves. In contrast to narratives that focus on the pain, suffering and unhappiness of queer people, the photographs show people who are surviving and doing well.

The events will take place in English. Admission 8 € | reduced 5 €

FOTO-TALK

Talk with the photographers Mohamad Abdouni (Beirut) and Bradley Secker (Istanbul), presentation: Ben Miller (Board Schwules Museum Berlin).

The work Treat me like your Mother is a tribute to trans* women and femme men who have largely disappeared from Beirut’s history. In collaboration with the LGBTQI+ NGO Helem, Mohamad Abdouni and his team spoke to ten women between the ages of late thirties and late fifties, photographed them and recorded their stories. Lebanese-born Mohamad Abdouni is a versatile creative mind. A photographer, filmmaker and visual artist, Abdouni has worked with a wide range of partners throughout his career, including the fashion brand Gucci, the Beirut Art Center and the FOAM Museum in Amsterdam.

Bradley Secker’s SEXugees series portrays LGBTIQ+ asylum seekers from the Middle East who are forced to work as prostitutes in Turkey. British artist Bradley Secker is based in Istanbul. His work has been published in The Guardian, on the BBC, in The Times, Der Spiegel, National Geographic and Le Figaro.

Greetings: Layla Al-Zubaidi (Deputy Head of International Cooperation, Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung).
Introduction: Katharina Mouratidi, Artistic Director f3 – freiraum für fotografie, in conversation with photographers participating in the show.

New Queer Photography is dedicated to all queer people who suffer for their way of life, fight for it, or simply celebrate it.

Julia Gunther takes us on a lesbian beauty pageant in a South African township in her series Rainbow Girls, Bradley Seckerportrays LGBTIQ+ asylum seekers from the Middle East who are forced to work as prostitutes in Turkey in SEXugees, Shahria Sharmin documents the lives of Hijras, who have been tolerated as transgender and intersex people on the Indian subcontinent for centuries, Milan Gies deals with prevailing body images in Europe in his work State of Identity, in The Pink Choice, Maika Elan portrays everyday queer life in Vietnam, and Clifford Prince King shares intimate moments between gay black people and people of colour in the USA.

For more than four years, dedicated art director and editor Benjamin Wolbergs has collected perspectives from queer photographers from all over the world for his publication New Queer Photography: in addition to works from Europe and the USA, there are series from India, Lebanon, South Africa, Vietnam and the Cape Verde Islands. They use the artistic space to play with genders and ascribed role models without prejudice or danger. In their experimental artistic practice, the authors of the images reflect the attitude to life of a new and young generation of queer people who – despite discrimination – live their identity with self-confidence and pride.

The exhibition was curated by Katharina Mouratidi and Benjamin Wolbergs.

20 June is World Refugee Day – it is the day that reminds us that millions of people are forced to leave their homes. The UNHCR estimates that by the middle of 2022 more than 100 million will be on the run for the first time. On the occasion of World Refugee Day, Miriam Zlobinski (ReVue) discusses the issue with historian and bestselling author Andreas Kossert and photographer Félix Kleymann.

Andreas Kossert‘s most recent book was “Flucht – Eine Menschheitsgeschichte”. He was awarded the NDR Kultur Non-Fiction Book Prize 2020 and the Friedrich Ebert Foundation Prize for “The Political Book” 2021 for his work.

The photographer Félix Kleymann is currently working in Ukraine. As early as 2015, he asked himself: How do people endure the hardships of flight? He set out on a journey and accompanied people fleeing from northern Iraq to Germany. Ride in a rubber dinghy included.

VALENTINE´S DAY SPECIAL

“Maybe love is purely luck that you meet the right person. Or is this a question of chance? No, I do think it’s about luck.” (Taikichi, Japan)

Special opening time: Monday, 14 February, 4 – 9 pm!

On Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2022, we will open our doors to all those in love, married, engaged, separated, divorced and anyone, who wants to become one of them! Discover the exhibition Love Around the World by Davor and Andela Rostuhar with a glass of sparkling wine (organic, with and without alcohol) or another drink of your choice with your beloved one(s)!

For one year, the Croatian photographer and his wife travelled around the world. On five continents and in 30 countries they conducted 120 interviews. They met people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, and travelled to both, big cities and the countryside. They visited remote tribes in the Amazon and nomads in the desert, spent time high up in the mountains and on South Sea Islands. They spoke with people who live together in all manner of different living arrangements, and ranging in age from five to 90. They asked all of them the same question: What is love, anyway?

In Love Around the World, people from all over the world give fascinating, intimate glimpses into their lives and show what relationships mean to people in different cultures. The collection turns some of our ideas about love on their head and expands our Western view of life in other parts of the world.

Admission 10 € | reduced 8 €

OPENING: LOVE AROUND THE WORLD

Due to the current Corona situation, the event will take place online. As a live talk on Instagram at @fhochdrei!

We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition

LOVE AROUND THE WORLD
Introduction: Katharina Mouratidi, Artistic Director f3 – freiraum für fotografie, in Conversation with Davor and Andela Rostuhar.

What is it actually, the thing we call love? What does it mean to us? Does love make it possible for us to overcome differences which divide us? Is love the most beautiful feeling in the world or is it a mere construct? Does love mean everlasting attachment, the fulfilment of material needs, time spent together, submission, protection – or does it mean disappointment, perhaps?

Croatian photographer Davor Rostuhar proposed to the love of his life, Andela, whilst on an expedition to Antarctica. Together, the adventurous couple decided not to embark on a romantic honeymoon, but instead to travel around the world for a year to explore the phenomenon of love. On five continents and in 30 countries they conducted 120 interviews. They met people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, and travelled to both, big cities and the countryside. They visited remote tribes in the Amazon and nomads in the desert, spent time high up in the mountains and on South Sea Islands. They spoke with people who live together in all manner of different living arrangements, and ranging in age from five to 90. They asked all of them the same question: What is love, anyway? 

In Love Around the World, people from all over the world give fascinating, intimate glimpses into their lives and show what relationships mean to people in different cultures.

OPENING: RUTH ORKIN – A Photo Spirit

The event is sold out!

Wir laden Sie herzlich ein zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung

RUTH ORKIN – A Photo Spirit

Speakers: Katharina Mouratidi, Artistic Director f3 – freiraum für fotografie, Nicola von Velsen (Publishing Management Hatje Cantz) and Nadine Barth, Curator and Consultant of Photography Hatje Cantz.

With its first solo exhibition in Germany, f³ – freiraum für fotografie honors the American photographer Ruth Orkin, a chronicler of the 1940s and 1950s.

Everyday scenes, cityscapes, portraits. Ruth Orkin’s photographs tell stories. Of the up-and-coming America of the post-war period, of the attitude to life of a society on the upswing and of women conquering new roles beyond that of housewife and mother. Her humorous yet serious view of the world is evident in the details of the images, in her sense of movement, timing and composition.

Ruth Orkin is one of the few professional women photographers of the 1940s and 1950s. Although she published in numerous newspapers and magazines such as the New York Times, Life or Look and her photographs were part of the legendary MOMA exhibition The Family of Man, she is still little known internationally. In contrast to many of her male colleagues, whose works are among the icons of street photography. One of her most famous images is the photograph American Girl in Italy. For the photograph, she portrayed her travel acquaintance Ninalee Craig (Jinx Allen) surrounded by men in Florence in 1951.

Throughout her life and work, Ruth Orkin has experienced, reflected and subverted society’s expectations. Her photographs are modern, free and perceptive commentaries on those times. Ruth Orkin would have turned 100 on September 3, 2021.

LIGHTPAINTING WORKSHOP: Learning to See from the Blind

Every Wednesday during the exhibition BLIND PHOTOGRAPHERS you have the opportunity to try out the light painting technique yourself under professional guidance.

Light painting takes place in a completely darkened room using long-term exposure. This technique is a selective type of photography, so to speak a reversal of ordinary photography in light, in which everything is recorded that is in front of the lens. The camera only records what is illuminated by a wide variety of light sources.

The workshop takes place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Participation is only possible with an online ticket, which you can book here.

[Further dates: October 28 as well as November 4, 18 and 25, 2020]

Admission: € 10 | reduced 8 €
