Distant devides. Zwischen Libanon und Deutschland.
(Between Lebanon and Germany)
Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei / Halle14
“Lebanon and Germany share histories of internal East and West divides. Beirut’s Green Line separated the Muslim and Christian communities during the country’s 15 years of Civil War whilst the Berlin Wall divided the city into two ideologically contrasting zones. Despite these divisions, and in some cases because of them, a number of artists crossed from one land to another. […] Distant Divides is a long-term research project that explores the artistic exchange between Lebanon and Germany. The research starts in 1960, the year before the building of the Berlin Wall, and the outset of the ‘Golden Age’ in Beirut, which saw a flourish of cultural activity in the country.”
Jewelry + image
GRASSI Museum of Applied Art
“Almost unnoticed, a collection of contemporary jewelry has grown in the museum over the last decades, which is now coming into the public eye. The objects attest to the gradual emancipation of jewelry design as an autonomous form of artistic expression. […] Thus, it is only logical to understand people and jewelry as a unity, and to photograph them with ‘their’ piece of jewelry. Personalities who are connected to the museum in various ways are ‘adorned’ and brought into the frame by aspiring and established photographers. In the exhibition, the pieces of jewelry correspond with the photographic works, making possible a deeper and more mutual perception.”
