BERLIN.- The Deutsche Bank KunstHalle presents Photo-Poetics: An Anthology, an exhibition of photographs, videos and slide installations by ten international artists drawn from the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum as well as from private lenders. The group exhibition, which runs from July 10 to August 30, 2015, documents recent developments in contemporary photography with selected works by Claudia Angelmaier, Erica Baum, Anne Collier, Moyra Davey, Leslie Hewitt, Elad Lassry, Lisa Oppenheim, Erin Shirreff, Kathrin Sonntag, and Sara VanDerBeek. The presentation also highlights the ongoing relationship between the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and Deutsche Bank.

Organized by Jennifer Blessing, Senior Curator, Photography, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, with Susan Thompson, Assistant Curator, Photo-Poetics: An Anthology offers an opportunity to define the concerns of a new generation of photographic artists and contextualize their work within the history of art and visual culture. These artists mainly pursue a studio-based approach to still-life photography that centers on the representation of objects, often printed matter such as books, magazines, and record covers. The result is an image imbued with poetic and evocative personal significance that resonates with larger cultural and historical meanings.

In a time defined by rapid digital transformation, the artists in this show investigate the traditions, and magic of photography as they attempt to rematerialize the photograph through meticulous printing, using film and other disappearing photo technologies. While invested in exploring the processes and techniques of photography, they are also deeply interested in how photographic images circulate. Theirs is a sort of “photo poetics,” an art that self-consciously investigates the laws of photography and the nature of photographic representation, reproduction, and the photographic object. The result is that the works in the exhibition, rich with detail, reward close and prolonged regard; they ask for a mode of looking that is closer to reading than the cursory scanning fostered by the clicking and swiping functionalities of smartphones and social media.

The exhibition is organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. After the presentation in Berlin, Photo-Poetics will be on view at the Guggenheim Museum in New York from November 20, 2015, to March 23, 2016.
