From 15 July to 11 September 2022, we welcome the Stuttgart gallery Galerie Kernweine to 'The Gällery - Raum für Fotografie'. Oliver Kröning, who curates the exhibition, explores a question that dynamically runs 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 different ways of life 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 display are works by Carlota Guerrero (ESP), Lin Zhipeng (aka No. 223, CHN), Slava Mogutin (USA/RUS) and Thalía Gochez (MEX/SLV).
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 photo collections as well as important players in the city of Stuttgart.
Every summer, we invite partners to 'The Gällery' to stage their exhibitions in our premises. Our first guest this year is the Stuttgart-based Galerie 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 different environments through relevant themes.
Galerie Kernweine Foto und Raum (g-k) is a place for contemporary photography, visual media and discourse. In collaboration with artists, the team led by Oliver Kröning and Mick Orel develops and curates exhibition projects that challenge classical approaches and expand established formats. Workshops and event formats on the topics of photography and visual media take place on an alternating basis. The g-k café & bar is located in the gallery's rear courtyard. In our g-k online shop we sell limited photo editions, books, magazines and selected products.
