Exhibitions at Galerie Anita Beckers
Der 1971 geborene und in Hamburg lebende Künstler Thorsten Brinkmann setzt sich in seinen Fotografien selbst in Szene. Seinen Kopf verbirgt er dabei mit gefundenen Objekten, wie Vasen, Schüsseln oder Eimern und schlüpft mit verschiedensten Kostümen in immer neue Charaktere. Sind diese Fotografien zwar im eigentlichen Sinne Selbstporträts, so bleibt er durch die Verhüllung anonym.
Die imaginären Welten entstehen mit dem "Plunder" anderer. Flohmä… more
20 Jahre Galerie Anita Beckers
Annegret Soltau is a pioneer in the field of feminist art and Body Art, however, her works still generate controversy today. Again and again her artworks are considered offensive, are censored or pulled from exhibitions. In the digital age where the internet offers an anyonymous platform to users, such concrete and physical images seem disconcerting. Today, her work boasts an unbroken authenticity.
In her work, Soltau draws her I. However, she does not need pencil and paper for this. Instead … more
Die Galerie Anita Beckers zu Gast in der Ausstellungshalle Schulstraße 1A
Warum Loredana Nemes' Schwarz-Weiß-Fotografien und Winter/ Hoerbelt`s Skulpturen aus industriell gefertigten Elementen unter einem Dach ausstellen? Ist es ausreichend, dass ihre Gemeinsamkeiten ebenso überraschend sind wie ihre Unterschiede und zusammen einen interessanten Ausstellungsrahmen bieten?
Die Fotografin Loredana Nemes bereist die Welt und bringt ihre Erfahrungen von der sie umgebenden Realität in ihre künstlerische Praxis ein. In ihrer neusten Serie Blü… more
Dokumentarfilm ist ein fest etablierter Teil von Diskurs und Praxis zeitgenössischer visueller Kunst. Folglich kann auch Cao Guimarães konzeptueller Ansatz so verstanden werden. Jene Prinzipien, die später so charakteristisch für seine künstlerische Arbeit werden, tauchen bereits in seinen frühen sinnbildlichen Fotoserien 'Gambiarra' (2001-2012) auf. Darin katalogisiert er, wie wir mit einfallsreichen, oft praktischen Improvisationen, unser Alltagsle… more
Through the advances of Fine and Performing Arts in the 1960s, a new art form was created: performance. The sources of the performance were mostly painting, sculpture, music and dance. Since 1964, Peter Weibel (*1944 Odessa) has pioneered an influential and exceptional pathway, namely 1. to transform language and media into fields of action 2. to emphasize the participation of the audience. Instead of underlying the monarchist tradition of the artist's presence, he democratically focused on… more
Jürgen Klauke is a key figure in art today and for some time many of his creations have constituted part of the most widely known repertoire of contemporary art, where he has exerted a huge influence over the last thirty years. His work, permanently fluctuating between extreme attraction and rejection, arouses both fascination and irritation. Klauke was among the first artists to avail themselves of photography as an instrument for artistic expression. Few people have explored as coherently… more

You Aren't Happy At All!
Vee Speers' "Birthday Party" Series
The list of photo artists who have taken the theme of childhood for themselves is long. That's understandable, for it is a rewarding photographic subject. What's fascinating is the position of in-between, the ambiguity of being a child: The child's ego is fragile, there are plenty of options. Is this only at the beginning: in a paradisiacal state, as has often been written?
When Vee Speers places children in front of the same white w… more
In her video and photo works, Aurelia Mihai (*1968 Bucharest) examines the disappearing boundaries between documentation and fiction in the area of media images. Historical references merge with legends and personal memories, forming suggestive images in which the reflection on the conditions of media perception always resonates.
"The video work of the Romanian artist Aurelia Mihai, in which she reflects on the periodic migration of herds of sheep ("Transhumanţa"), a practice now banned by… more

In our videospace as well as our new project space SATELLIT in the center of Frankfurt we present videoworks of the Russian artist VICTOR ALIMPIEV in the exhibition "The wind doesn't blow over the parquet".
In his videoworks VICTOR ALIMPIEV combines elements of diverse artistic genres like painting, theatre, dance and music in the moving image. The human "material" that seldom performs as individuals but mostly as a group of people in Alimpiev works, becomes a mouldable "mass" formed to a livin… more
As a premiere we will present the new series of photography "The Quiet of Dissolution" by SONJA BRAAS.
Natural disasters per definition only exist because of human presence. Destructive forces are essential for nature's development; its existence is based and dependent on sometimes catastrophic, sudden changes. It is only when these necessary natural phenomena lead to the destruction of human life and environment that they are defined as natural or cultural catastrophes. Not only did the interp… more
PORTRAITS - the view behind the make-up
Portrait – just a surface or the truth behind it? Since the beginnings of portrait as artistic genre the image of a face has been the subject of promising ascriptions: the spectator expected the portrait to tell him the truth that the mere representation of a face seemed to be hiding. For a long time the artist as well as the spectator were driven by the believe – and the hope – that the view of the surface could reveal to them the significance of t… more
