6.30 artist talk

the exhibition “blumen am kreuzberg” presents colour photographs by josef wolfgang mayer  from his series BERLIN (2006 – 2016), a city in flux. a fascinating interplay of architectural forms and patterns, chance objects and word signs – a juxtaposition and merging of the most diverse epochs of the city and of the cultures of its inhabitants. the perspectives, shot with a 4-by-5-inch camera, only seem trivial and reveal a subtle irony on closer inspection. the images are accurate in every detail, for mayer, in the tradition of ‘still’ and ‘straight photography’, deliberately dispenses with technical and visual tricks, posed and manipulated subjects, and supposedly grand motifs. they are sober, precisely composed colour photographs that seem objective yet at the same time ambivalent, they unfold  poetry. berlin in  colour – a voyage of discovery between supermarkets, clubs, backyards, street scenes und „flowers“ at the kreuzberg.
