From Albrecht Fuchs' magnetic portraits of Sarah Lucas, Raymond Pettibon, Jonathan Meese, Mark Leckey and other international art stars to Wiebke Loeper's strangely moving and often desolate landscapes to Matthias Koch's deadpan images of grounded submarines, government ministries and disused military bunkers, this collection highlights 10 new positions in German photography today, as noted by the internationally renowned curator and photo expert Thomas Weski. While for many years the German photography scene was dominated by Bernd Becher's first generation of students at the famous Art Academy Düsseldorf, more recently, a vivid, heterogeneous scene has developed outside of any particular region or style. With generous selections of work by Fuchs, Loeper, Koch, Laurenz Berges, Karin Geiger, Claus Goedicke, Uschi Huber, Nicola Meitzner, Peter Piller and Heidi Specker, as well as a short interview with and bio for each artist, Presentation/Representation confidently introduces the next generation to watch.
