Real Space. Conceptual Space.
24 Jan 14 > 28 Feb 14
Museum of Modern Art Baku, in the collaboration with The Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (ifa) and German Embassy Baku presents exhibition "Real Space. Conceptual Space - German Photography of the 90s" .
Exposition will take place in a series of exhibitions called "Aspects of Contemporary German Photography" and will represent German photographers of the 90s. Three different views of Susanne Brügger, Thomas Demand and Heidi Specker will be united inside one public space.
This interrelation is evident in the blurred, and thus abstracted, architectural images by Heidi Specker, the kind of disecting approach of Susanne Brügger, as well as in Thomas Demand's constructed interior views. The special emphasis on space in the title of the exhibition, in connection with the terms, 'reality' and 'picture', points to the specific analysis of a theme with the available means of expression, i.e. photography, which through reproduction transforms space and time into an image. The results of this pictorializing process is represented at the exhibition with eight black and white photos by Susanne Brügger, seven large-format colour photographs by Thomas Demand, and twelve colour prints by Heidi Specker.
On the exhibition there will be presented up to thirty different works by authors. Exhibition "Real Space. Conceptual Space" has been held in more than 46 different countries all over the world since 1998.
