Exhibition of the month: «Nach Berlin» by Candida Höfer at nbk Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. The exhibition of photographs and projections mark a restart for the well-known photographer who is notorious for shooting libraries and other spledid interiors of all kinds, because for this exhibiton she left behind her well-known territories to strive for the yet unknown aspects of her work – at least for her audience. She magically develops a nostalgic fascination for textures and structures and the subtle rhythm of overlaying images of public and semi-public spaces seem to rhyme like the lines of a poem. Her conceptual images put her into the role of a Walter Benjamin-like «flanêuse» and us in the position of the strolling voyeur. The space-place relationship developed by her photographs takes us on a trip deep into the center of the constantly transforming ephemeral and the futile inbetween. Therefore «Nach Berlin» («To Berlin» or «After Berlin») can also be understood in a temporary aspect – and mark a transition for all of us.
