15 July – 11 September 2022

Gallery Kernweine as guest in THE GÄLLERY - Space for Photography
With Carlota Guerrero, Lin Zhipeng (aka No.223), Slava Mogutin, Thalía Gochez

From 15 July to 11 September 2022, we welcome Stuttgart's Kernweine Gallery to "The Gällery - Space for Photography". Oliver Kröning, who curates the exhibition, deals with a question that runs dynamically through our lives but to which there is no consistent answer: Under the title "WHO AM I? I AM.", positions of four international photographers are shown who individually deal with the search for identity and provide insights into diverse life models and social constructs. By looking at these different photographic perspectives, you too are invited to embark on a search for your own personal answer.

On view are works by Carlota Guerrero (Spain), Lin Zhipeng (aka No. 223, China), Slava Mogutin (USA/Russia) and Thalía Gochez (Mexico/El Salvador).

Curator: Oliver Kröning
Curatorial assistance: Anna-Lena Reulein

As a space for photography, "The Gällery" is not only dedicated to the extensive photographic holdings of the Staatsgalerie collection, but also works in cooperation with national and international photographic collections as well as actors from the city of Stuttgart.

Every summer, we invite partners to show their exhibitions in the space. Our first guest this year is the Stuttgart Gallery Kernweine Foto und Raum (g-k).

With "WHO AM I? I AM.", Oliver Kröning curates an exhibition that places contemporary, international perspectives on photography in the context of diverse lifeworlds through relevant themes.
