Susanne Kriemann: through an evening, dark in a monochrome, near perfect way
Tuesday, 11. July 2017, 19.00, Aula
Susanne Kriemann will talk about her recent projects, amongst others the work shown in the Slide Show exhibition at Portikus this spring. Kriemann’s artistic practice is characterized by an extended concept of photography, where recording as a photographic principle is studied under the aspects of temporality and material processability within specific social-historical contexts.
Susanne Kriemann, born 1972 in Erlangen, Germany, is an artist living and working in Berlin. She is professor for artistic photography at University of Design in Karlsruhe and a long-term advisor at the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht (NL), where she continues her on-going exploration of research and artist practice. Together with Aleksander Komarov, she founded the artist initiative AIR Berlin Alexanderplatz (www.airberlinalexanderplatz.de). The works of Susanne Kriemann are represented by Galerie Wilfried Lentz, Rotterdam and Galerie RaebervonStenglin, Zürich (2009-2016). Kriemann also publishes artist books, that are testaments to her overarching concern with historiography—how history is written, read, and rewritten—and the connections that can be found between art, literature, and archaeology.
