„Imagine“ offers no reassurance.


„Imagine“ is full of built-up heat, bottlenecks, and feverish abstraction.

seen at Gallery alexander levy, BRUCH by Fabian Knecht, April 26 to June 22, 2019

Fabian Knecht



Fabian Knecht creates a piece of a brick wall on the frozen Baltic Sea. By choosing a landscape-like emptiness as well as an icy grey surface Knecht emphasises his ecological and political message which we are able to grasp with our visual imagination. The wall, which represents solidity and the limitation of boundary, will be deprived of its solid footing. The frosted surface is about to melt, the wall will finally sink into the sea.


Fabian Knecht’s sculptures, compositions and photographs are the result of a deeply conceptual and uncompromising approach that questions the notion of time and the collapse of a world in permanent crisis. After Bernard Vienat

Saskia Groneberg

“The extended, coloured cinematic perspectives, which evoke an association with landscape painting, explore how an artificial current of water turns into a projection surface and a platform for human desires and actions. A choreography is created, a collection of synchronised, recurring moving sequences through which the images inherit something universal.”

Anja Lückenkemper, curator, author

In the 2-channel video production Wasserfall Saskia Groneberg focuses on the English Garden in Munich.

seen at Gallery Taik Persons, Berlin, ONE MILLIMETER AWAY FROM STILLNESS by Juuso Noronkoski, February 23 to April 20, 2019

Juuso Noronkoski

“There exists a German word for describing the contradictory nature of experiencing time – Ungleichzeitigkeit – non-simultaneity. The past and the present float around in my consciousness and I can’t decide which one feels more immediate.”

Juuso Noronkoski

“Juuso Noronkoski allows us to observe the passing of time.”

Claudia Wieser

Geometric gold-silver forms capture the blue and blackness of reproduced landscape from a bygone age resulting in the mystical attraction of woven tapestry. Fantastical characters float before a traditional setting, open up fictional spheres.

seen at gallery Tanja Wagner, THE RADICAL EMPATHIARCHY by Anna Witt, September 14 to November 10 2018

Anna Witt

A performative manifesto for a potential youth movement

Anna Witt accompanied a group of young people in Leipzig as they developed and implemented a performative manifesto for a potential youth movement. In their conversations, the group expressed their feelings towards prevailing systems, contemplated the type of society they would like to live in and openly revealed their personal utopias. Based on their own ideas and sentiments, they then translated their manifesto into physical expressions and performative interventions in the public space.

Anna Witt creates playful situations and facilitates communal interaction. Using both verbal and non-verbal articulation, she prompt us to refelect on new definitions of collaborative coexistence.


“To rediscover the curiosity that shows you what you want, that brings out your own individual initiative” – Statement extract.

seen at KINDL – Centre for Contemporary Art, Berlin / FIRST THINGS FIRST by Shirana Shahbazi, April 02 to August 06 2017

Shirana Shahbazi

“The major part of my work is the combinations that I put together between the photographs, which question each other, enrich each other; they can be very similar to each other or very different.”

Artist Shirana Shahbazi during an interview with Eva Respini, associate curator of the MoMA exhibition New Photography 2012.

“These pictures insist on a necessary openness that is demanded unconditionally and seeks out and withstands the pluralist, equal juxtaposition.”

Andreas Fiedler, curator of the Shirana Shahbazi exposition First Things First, artistic director of the KINDL Centre for Contemporary Art.

“…, while the gaze continually navigates across disparate juxtapositions.”

From the First Things First catalogue text “Photographic Difference” by Jens Asthoff.

Lichtinstallation Europa

“Today, so much seems self-evident even when it clearly isn’t. Not too long ago, this place, this city, this land – the whole of Europe – lay in ruins. History is still palpable. For this reason, it is important to make statements that emanate a positive and affirmative message in support of Europe, like this light installation. Resembling a lighthouse, it serves as a figurative aid to navigation, guiding us through the darkness and symbolising hope.”

Loredana Nemes

In the banking sector, senior positions are predominantly held by men. Loredana Nemes decided to photograph some of them. Doing so, the artist sculpturally arranges the suit and accessories in an avant-garde manner. Commonly considered as the uniform and insignia of the world of business and finance, Nemes stylistically experiments with the fabric of the suit, bestowing it a new materiality and form. With this, the essence and the inward gaze of the wearer become apparent.

Loredana Nemes is a highly-esteemed artist who devises photographic series in black and white, creating unique portraits that examine the notion of identity.
