Lost Places

Aug 24, 2012


In recent years, photography has reached a new peak in artistic media. Starting with the Düsseldorf School, with artists such as Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Thomas Ruff or Candida Höfer, a young generation of artists developed that adopted different approaches by which to present the subject-matter of „space“ and „place“ in an era of historic change and social crises.

With the exhibition Lost Places, the Hamburger Kunsthalle art museum dedicates itself to these new approaches, which document a wide range of different places and living spaces and their increasing isolation through the media of photography, film and installation works. The exhibition features the following artists among others: Thomas Demand, Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, Sabine Hornig, Barbara Probst, Ben Rivers, Thomas Ruff, Jeff Wall and Tobias Zielony.
