in THE GÄLLERY – Raum für Fotografie
In cooperation with the Wüstenrot Stiftung, the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart is showing new works by Jana Bauch, Marc Botschen, Dudu Quintanilha and Ramona Schacht, which were created as part of the Documentary Photography Award 14. Between archive material, artistic and journalistic practices and deliberate staging, the four artists illuminate different positions in the field of documentary photography. At the centre of their works are questions about processes of collectivisation as well as the subject, the body and gender, the genealogy and socio-political conditionality of the human being.
The Documentary Photography Prizes, which have been awarded every two years since 1994 by the Wüstenrot Foundation in co-operation with the Photographic Collection of the Museum Folkwang, are the most important awards of their kind in Germany. They are aimed at photographers who deal with real-life subjects and redefine the representational function of photography using contemporary means.
Free admission is made possible by the Wüstenrot Foundation.
