Willy Römer - Hannah Höch with the puppets representing her daughters Pax and Botta (La Réunion des musées nationaux - Grand-Palais), ca 1920.
Berlin 1986: Hamburger Bahnhof was a railway museum set in a disused station building from the early days of the railways. It was administered by the East German railway authority, even though it was in West Berlin, until 1984, when it was handed over to the West. Then started a long period of restoration, and at some point the statue in front of a kneeling male figure disappeared. This was a memorial to those employees of the railways who had fallen in the First World War. I thought it was rather effective, being sorrowful rather than bombastic, but I can find no information about its fate on the internet.
Update: Thanks to http://onnola.tumblr.com/ for the information concerning the sculpture. It was made by sculptor Emil Cauer the Younger and has not been destroyed, but is in storage with the National Gallery in Berlin.
Residencia en la Tierra
During one months I’ve lived and worked in Colombia, as part of Residencia en la Tierra’s residency program. I’ve started a series of drawings based on my research and inspiration during the stay. Here’s a sneak peak. My residency was kindly supported by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee. www.residenciaenlatierra.org.
I proudly work for Emma at NU Agency.
"Ultimately, photography is subversive not when it frightens, repels, or even stigmatizes, but when it is pensive, when it thinks.”—Roland Barthes
Great institutions, like New York’s Museum of Modern Art, have the resources and talent to offer meaningful contributions to our cultural conversation. The recently opened, A World of Its Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio, draws from the museum’s formidable archives, as well as new acquisitions, to ask us to consider photography’s history of experimentation and development within the confines of the studio.
With the “studio” as theme, there is elasticity to include a diverse and significant selection of artists who have helped us to muse on what photography is and what images can do. Persons interested in the academic/intellectual history of photography will find the show most compelling; those looking for entertainment will not. I suspect that for anyone who takes photography seriously, MoMA’s latest photographic exploration will leave you thinking. —Lane Nevares
