  1. JASPER DE BEIJER – Wir sind das Gedächtnis


    9th of November 2013 until the 18th on January 2014

    The dream that was Germany in 1871 is over. The passion and concerted effort that had brought unity to the nation were torn apart by a frustrated Kaiser and a sociopathic dictator. The cities of the former kingdom of Prussia, the cultural heart of the nation, were razed to the ground. Today, after decades of nursing their wounds and repairing the destruction, these centres have recovered some of their former glory.

     

    The artist recently made a study tour past some of the locations that played such a dramatic role in Europe’s recent history. Viewing the reconstructed cityscapes, he wondered how often you can demolish and rebuild a structure before it loses its identity. He imagined a town that has been destroyed for the umpteenth time, and a community that tries to erect a silhouette of its culture from a vague recollection of its past. Using only the primitive means left at their disposal, the townspeople strive to recover their identity, rebuilding their city with the same determination that they shared in former times – an echo of an idealized past.

     The Empire Project

     

     The Empire Project identifies and exhibits contemporary art from the regions which have historically been within the cultural sphere of influence centered upon (or significantly affected by) the imperial locus we today call Istanbul. Geographically speaking, the range is wide, including most of the Mediterranean world and Arabian Peninsula, much of Eastern Europe, Anatolia, the Black Sea region, and Central Asia.

This year Jasper de Beijer has selected a number of artists working with different levels of reality within the medium photography; from photography which is based on a documentary reality to complete manipulation of the medium.
    From the 8 participants, De Beijer has made 4 pairs. Every pair is a combination between documentary photography and staged photography (CGI- Computer Generated Images – scale models and stage sets)
