Events • GoSee Tip : The Play Studios in Hamburg invite to 'Friday Rewind' on 29 March and present a pop-up exhibition on Bettina Lewin's photographic homage to astronomer Caroline Lucretia Herschel

12.03.2018 • Time for Friday Rewind! This time, the legendary pop-up exhibition 'Friday Rewind' is not only about photography but also about astronomy and fashion:

For THE OBSERVATORY, Hamburg-based photographer Bettina Lewin c/o NERGER M&O took her team to the Bergedorf Observatory. 'Because fashion photography,' as Lewin sees it, 'should also tell stories of people, of passion and hard work, of big and small discoveries'. Coming to life in the historical walls was the work of astronomer Caroline Lucretia Herschel (1750-1848). Only today is Herschel's research truly appreciated – she discovered 14 nebulas and countless deep-sky objects, just to name a few. Bettina Lewin's poetic images pay tribute to the beauty and accuracy of her mindset.

Creative Director of the photo series was Regine Berndt from Leagas Delaney Hamburg, the locations were scouted by Angelika Bäuml, styling of Persina Tesic's c/o M4 Models was taken care of by Jürgen Claussen with jewelry from Wempe. Production was in the hands of North South Productions and Production Department Hamburg with Ivo Boderke. Jeannette...

Events • Ben Kaufmann - 'A4', Cologne's MARTINETZ Gallery presents from 24 February thru 6 April 2018 drive-by works shot from 2013-2017

21.02.2018 • The exhibition, A4 by Ben Kaufmann is based on a series of photographs, all of which were taken on a stretch of the A4 motorway between the cities of Cologne and Aachen from 2013 to 2017. The series documents existing components found within this public space and emphasizes two key focal points, the Weisweiler brown coal power station and commercial lorries travelling on the motorway. The Weisweiler power station is one of the most environmentally damaging in Germany and has become symbolic of environmental discussions, the demand for an energy revolution and for ensuing societal and workplace controversies. The lorries that Kaufmann photographs on this stretch of motorway depict advertisements that, for the most part, present a sexist view of women and ignore critical discourse about socially established gender stereotypes.

We learn from the press text: "In passing neither the power station nor the lorries advertised messages are explicitly scrutinized, they become just a part of the everyday exterior space that passes us all by. The motif, however, is repeated and...
