City Museum Hofheim: Shadows, Silhouettes, Between Forms

A quiet disappointment, you can't like to hide at the end. Even if the twelve selected items to the Marta Hoepffner-award for photography, which are now to be seen in the Stadtmuseum Hofheim am Taunus, not to be basically the slightest occasion. The Work of Aristidis Schnelzer are considered, with a special mention, are the portraits of Alexander or Nicholas stone "graal"-a result too good. To be irritating here and there, engaging in their questions for the place of narrative power. And always moving.

F. A. Z.

And the memory of this great, these days, internationally, from the Tate in London or the Pompidou Centre – back photographer, the Marta Hoepffner-Gesellschaft für Fotografie in all three years of the award maintains for nearly 20 years now discovered, is already a highly honorable to catch quite happy calling under. Alone, the courage to Experiment, the decidedly artistic approach to the Medium, with photographic apparatus and Material for the work Hoepffners (1912-2000) is in the first line, he plays from Michael Paul Romstöcks concept work "Zur Linde" or especially of Arhun Aksakals "no title" once, in the case of most young graduates have little more than a supporting role.

What dominated under the theme of "Foreign views," submitted, predominantly analog-recorded works are rather literary, there personally motivated positions associative storytelling, for the stone "graal", as well as Tabita hub, "La realidad de la bestia", or Louisa Baker "Safari". After all, analog Works dominate the competition, and also the award of the black & white is reserved for photography. "What I do", as worded by Marta Hoepffner, is also poetry, but a technical material." And: "forms of Light, shadows, forms, and between forms can be the content of an image."

The reality close

That, it seems, only Hoepffner not taught their students in their private photo school in Hofheim. It is rather, in view of the digitization alone and in the art of still-viable Medium as such. And so it follows the at the ostkreuz school-trained stone, the awarded the for the seventh Time, and with 3000 euros, the award winning, willingly, in an increasingly strange, between mysticism, noise and madness unfolding of a narrative that brings with Louisa Baker, the photo album of her grandfather in a new order, or increases with Fabian Stransky, who is studying in Darmstadt, Germany, literally on the rooftops of a city. And the formal qualities of air-conditioning systems, discovered shafts and welded the Exhaust brackets, as it were sculptures of Charlotte Poseneske.
