T
he Girl Behind The White Picket Fence (60m, Germany) dir. by Stefanie Schneider. An artists world of movie stills, 'The Girl Behind the White Picket Fence' is a succession of Polaroid film stills. One after another, this film takes this to the limit and still delivers. Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly, flowing with the rhythm of the music or in the energy the film portrays. Gaps keeps the viewer paying close attention but this is no Instagram lark, this is real analog Polaroid film. This is a one off, a complete window into an artists mind as she sees the world. Sunny, hot, in love, open spaces evoking freedom but also banishment. This film started out with a vision of grand collectiveness with all participants coming from Schneider's time in Hollywood ranging from directors to actors, producers to agents and writers to weirdos. The American dream was alive and well in this motley group who fell in love with Schneider's idea to capture a story about love on Polaroid film. The center of this story is the 'Lonely Hearts Radio Station' DJ, who talks to the searching broken hearted in the southern Californian desert. A sad young girl calls in to better understand what is going on which results in an unexpected chain of events. Main characters: Hans, the mystic played by the veteran actor Udo Kier. Heather's a young girl who's lost her parents played by Heather Megan Christie. Radio station DJ played by the comic Steve Marshall. Hank is the local garbage man played by Kyle Larson.

— filmed with Polaroid film stock and Super-8 footage, overlaid with poetic voiceover monologue —  this feature film creates a dynamic kaleidoscope of words and pictures, a dreamy tale that channels Terrence Malick, Gus Van Sant, and pages torn from a lonely girl’s journal.  (Palms Springs Life)

ABOUT LIGHT ASSEMBLY
Light Assembly is both a film festival like no other, and a mass-scale showcase of video art and architecture. In the last decade, visual artists such as Miranda July, Steve McQueen and Julian Schnabel have legitimized the crossover from visual art to filmmaking. Light Assembly is the first-ever film festival dedicated to assisting artists in that crossover between art and film. Light Assembly is also a pilot video art and architecture exposition program unique in the world. Conceived as a beta of Time Zones Chicago, planned for premier in late Summer of 2013, the goal of Light Assembly is to combine large-scale video art projection with the citywide canvas of Miami Beach and mainland Miami’s modern architectural marvels and historic landmarks.

ADDITIONAL EXHIBIT of PHOTOGRAPHS with UDO KIER

On display during the Art Basel Miami at the Miami Beach Cinemateque.

Spiegelbild (Stage of Consciousness), 2007, 4/5, C-Print, 125x156cm

In December we host our first exhibition by German-born Stefanie Schneider, known for her dreamlike and painterly photographs expressing the mirage-like aestheticism in the California lifestyle.

After moving to Los Angeles in the late ‘90s Schneider has been showing us her outsider’s view of the area and its sunlit stark character through the classic shades of Polaroid and muted hues indigenous to the region and its atmospheres.

Inspired by an early love of 1970s films depicting American living and an eye for the light in the West, she concocts a vast array of pictorial narratives hinting at something just below the surface of her raw and quirky ingénues and heat wave drenched heroes. Viewers waffle between a sense of being invited in to view the spectacle and simultaneously acting as voyeur.

Schneider received her MFA in Communication Design at the Folkwang Schule Essen, Germany. Her work has been shown at the Museum for Photography, Braunschweig, Museum für Kommunikation, Berlin, the Institut für Neue Medien, Frankfurt, the Nassauischer Kunstverein, Wiesbaden, Kunstverein Bielefeld, Museum für Moderne Kunst Passau, Les Rencontres d’Arles, Foto -Triennale Esslingen. Schneider’s works are represented in public collections as well as being represented in prestigious private collections internationally.

Most recently, she has directed a movie with actor and fellow valley resident Udo Kier, which will be shown in Miami this year in a film festival during the Art Basel Week.

COURTNEY ROY 
eric weeks  camille

Kourtney Roy mêle la fiction et l’autoportrait. Elle explore les aspects sublimes et étranges de la vie quotidienne dans des mises en scènes pleines de tension et de mystère . Pour Eric Weeks la muse est prétexte à un potentiel narratif de la photographie ou la couleur, la lumière, le paysage et le portrait ne sont jamais le fruit du hasard. A l’aide de la technique Polaroid, parfaitement adaptée aux instantanés, Stefanie Schneider donne à ses images de muses de magnifiques effets picturaux, obtient des effets spéciaux et des flous.

ROAD ATLAS
 
Straßenfotografie aus der DZ BANK Kunstsammlung

KUNSTMUSEUM DIESELKRAFTWERK COTTBUS

marlboro


Die Straße als Schauplatz des Alltags und urbanes Merkmal übt von jeher eine besondere Faszination auf Fotografinnen und Fotografen aus. "Road Atlas" vereint erstmals rund 150 Fotografien aus der DZ Bank Kunstsammlung zum Thema Straße: 26 Positionen und 70 Jahre Straßenfotografie.

Das Spektrum der von Dr. Beate Kemfert, Kuratorin und Stiftungsvorstand der Opelvillen, und Dr. Christina Leber, Leiterin der DZ BANK Kunstsammlung, ausgewählten Fotografien zeigt Straßen rund um den Globus in der Zeitspanne der Nachkriegsfotografie bis heute. Die Fotografien halten Gebäudeansichten, Alltagssituationen sowie radikale Veränderungen im Bild fest und dokumentieren so Zeiten des Wohlstands, der Stagnation und Spuren des Verschwindens städtischer Räume. Darüber hinaus zeigen sie Menschen des urbanen Raums.

Bis heute hat die Straße in der Fotografie eine besondere Bedeutung. Neben kulturellen Phänomenen üben formale Kriterien und lineare Qualitäten dauerhaft Anziehungskraft aus.

Der Reigen der vorgestellten Fotografinnen und Fotografen beginnt bei Helen Levitt (1913-2009), der Klassikerin der Street Photography, und endet bei Zeitgenossen wie Pieter Hugo (*1976).

Mit über 6000 fotografischen Werken von mehr als 550 Künstlerinnen und Künst- lern zählt die DZ BANK Kunstsammlung zu den bedeutendsten Sammlungen, die sich mit dem fotografischen Bild auseinandersetzt.

Die Ausstellung ist nach den Opelvillen vom 11. Juli bis zum 26. August 2012 im Kunstmuseum Dieselkraftwerk, Cottbus zu sehen www.museum-dkw.de, im Frühjahr 2013 in der Kunsthalle Erfurt www.kunsthalle-erfurt.de und im Sommer 2013 in der DZ Bank, Frankfurt www.dzbank-kunstsammlung.de.

Fotografinnen und Fotografen: Nobuyoshi Araki, Ursula Arnold, René Burri, Gregory Crewdson, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Pietro Donzelli, Valie Export, Arno Fischer, Robert Häusser, Naoya Hatakeyama, Pieter Hugo, Gerd Kittel, Barbara Klemm, Helen Levitt, Will McBride, Aernout Mik, John Miller, Ryuji Miyamoto, Jean-Luc Moulène, Marcel Odenbach, Arnold Odermatt, Stefanie Schneider, Stephen Shore, Anatolij Shuravlev, Beat Streuli, Thomas Struth.

POLAROID [IM]POSSIBLE / THE WESTLICHT COLLECTION
WESTLICHT. SCHAUPLATZ FüR FOTOGRAFIE
Reception Thursday, June 16, 19.00h

heather_impossible

»Untitled«, 2011, PX 680 Colorshade Push, 9x11cm (Original)

Als 2009 bekannt wurde, dass die legendäre Polaroid Collection mit ihren zwei Standorten in den USA und Europa als Teil der Konkursmasse des insolventen Unternehmens bei Sotheby’s New York versteigert werden sollte, ging ein Aufschrei durch die internationale Fotoszene: Angeführt von Chuck Close, protestierten Künstler, Museen und Fotoliebhaber weltweit gegen den Ausverkauf der Sammlung. Quasi in letzter Minute gelang es WestLicht, den europäischen Teil der Sammlung zu übernehmen und in seiner Gesamtheit zu erhalten. Gegründet von Edwin Land in den 1960er Jahren, umfasst dieser einmalige historische Bestand rund 4.400 Werke von 800 internationalen Künstlern. Die Ausstellung präsentiert am Beispiel ausgewählter Meisterwerke – von Ansel Adams bis Andy Warhol – einen ersten Querschnitt dieser einzigartigen Sammlung. Ergänzt werden die Polaroids durch jüngere Werke von Künstlern wie Nobuyoshi Araki und Daido Muriyama, die mit dem neuen Impossible-Sofortbildmaterial arbeiten. Eine erstaunliche Bandbreite an wichtigen Genres und innovativen Prozessen vermittelt die spezifische Originalität und Magie der Sofortbildkunst. Sie wird entlang der unterschiedlichen Kameras und Filmtypen vorgestellt, bis hin zu den faszinierenden 20x24-Zoll-Formaten. Begleitend erscheint der Katalog FROM POLAROID TO IMPOSSIBLE / MASTERPIECES OF INSTANT PHOTOGRAPHY – THE WESTLICHT COLLECTION im Hatje Cantz Verlag (hgg. von Achim Heine, Rebekka Reuter, Ulrike Willingmann; Hardcover, Deutsch-Englisch, 192 Seiten, 230 Farbabbildungen).

Eröffnet anlässlich der Feier von 10 Jahren WestLicht und 20 Jahren Leica Shop.

Impossible and WestLicht Museum of Photography preserve and lead the International Polaroid Collection into the future. Thanks to the commitment of Impossible, the producer of the new analog instant film material, the Vienna based Museum of Photography WestLicht purchased the International Polaroid Collection. WestLicht takes over 4.400 artworks from 800 artists (from Ansel Adams to Andy Warhol) and will exhibit a fine selection of these iconic images combined with some new contemporary works shot on new Impossible instant film
from June 17th, 2011. Formed between 1972 and 1990 by Polaroid, the legendary International Collection disappeared for 20 years in the archives of the Swiss Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne. Peter Coeln, owner of the WestLicht Museum and also an investor of the Impossible Project, has now saved the Polaroid Collection which had been put on the market by the liquidators dealing with the assets of the insolvent company. For almost two years the future of the unique Polaroid collection was fairly uncertain. The spectacular acquisition at the last moment secures the continued existence of this historic collection and presents it to a broad public for the first time. The future of the yet hidden analog treasure is thus not only saved but also brighter than ever before. After all these years the collection is finally going to be reconnected with its original concept. Dr. Florian Kaps, founder of the Impossible Project, says: “Most important is the fact that we finally found a perfect solution for not onl celebrating the incredible potential of all the existing artworks, but that we also formed a great setup to re-start the original concept by inviting contemporary artists to join this ongoing project by supplying them with the new generation of Impossible instant films”. The first impressions of this collaboration will proudly be presented at WestLicht from June 17th, 2011. This exhibition will for the first time show a complete representative profile of the traditional collection, displaying never before shown pieces. Combined with the first results of the new Impossible Collection, the magic of instant photography will be lifted onto the next level. Hatje Cantz published a catalog to accompany the exhibition: FROM POLAROID TO IMPOSSIBLE / MASTERPIECES OF INSTANT PHOTOGRAPHY – THE WESTLICHT COLLECTION. This publication features selected Polaroid masterpieces and new Impossible instant photography by contemporary artists such as Stefanie Schneider and Nobuyoshi Araki.
