Dear friends of the gallery,
while the gallery goes into a summer break after July 31, Robert Morat Galerie is pleased to present an exhibition project organized by its director Tobias Kappel.
»open-ended photography« aims to expand the gallery program through a multiplicity of forms and possibilities, all rooted in photography but interested in a conversation about the mutability of the medium as a defining condition.
Seven Berlin-based artists are contributing works that transcend documentary approaches commonly associated with photographic images. Their experimental access manifests itself in digital, abstract as well as material transformations of the medium. Building on the notion that a translation of reality into another medium will always change that reality, the exhibition guides its audience away from the predominant memorial aspect of photography to open up a more independent way of looking and thinking in images.
Artists: David Hanes, Nora Heinisch, Tobias Kappel, Victoria Pidust, Susanne Schwieter, Stefanie Seufert, Juliane Tübke
