Charlotte Posenenske2022 CCA Berlin
The Vierkantrohre Serie D (1967) by Charlotte Posenenske (1930-1985) consists of six different geometric bodies made of sheet metal. This kit can be assembled in different ways. So, unlike classical sculptures, there is no limitation; the work can be continued and changed to respond to a wide variety of spaces. On the occasion of her exhibition at CCA Berlin, we photographed some of these shafts in various public and semi-public places in Berlin.

PERFECT2022 Alexandra Bachzetsis
“Perfect is a performance set in what looks like a photo studio: a white sheet of thick paper rolls down the wall to form an impromptu background for the reification of the body in view, and bright white lights (glaring sources of heat all) shine onto this provisory stage – in other words, we are already in a world designed for the thrill of looking, for scopophilia.”
Bodies in Motion2019 Independent
A series of different stagings, which focus on the spontaneous during the encounter between photographer and model. The image sequences of photography and moving image constitute a more holistic portrait.
The Show’s Over2020 Schauspielhaus Zürich
In March 2020, Wu Tsang and her collaborators Moved by the Motion shot a film titled The Show's Over with the ensemble of Schauspielhaus Zürich. The piece was inspired by the poem come on, get it by Fred Moten and the Report from Occupied Territory by James Baldwin, exploring underground streams of resistance and the politics of (in)visibility. Here: The Show's Over set and behind the scenes.
Crowdfunding Campaign2020 Body Leaks
Body Leaks is a platform for stakeholders who encourage, educate, and inspire, a platform for female empowerment and interconnection. In collaboration with the outstanding design studio Deutsche + Japaner, an inauguration campaign discovers the female body in detail, bringing the female to the fore.
Photographer Diana Pfammatter has an eye for portraits that disarm. Whether she is shooting big-name artists or intimate pictures with good friends, she creates scenes that feel surprisingly spontaneous. The images on her website reveal that she has the ability to level with each of her subjects before the camera until the shared smiles and shyness of humanity is teased out and laid bare. This openness extends to close-cropped details of the body, where the folds and creases of skin become a new form of embodied abstraction. (Louise Benson, deputy editor, Elephant Magazine)
