La jeune photographie allemande - Gütschow and Alex Grein

Exhibition: 10 November 2022 – 4 January 2023
Opening, Thursday, 10 November, 6:30 pm

Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and Goethe-Institut Paris show works by students of Beate Gütschow and Alex Grein.

As part of the exhibition series "La jeune photographie allemande", this year, students of the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne are showing photographic-installative works under the title "The End/ Not the End?" that deal with the global dimension and complexity of the ecological crisis. The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation organises the exhibition series annually in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Paris.

The artists, supervised by Prof. Beate Gütschow and Alex Grein, develop poetic narratives of doom in which grief is paired with a will to act. The aim of the art is to make the invisible visible. The exhibition will open at the Goethe-Institut Paris, on 10 November 2022 at 18:30 during the international photography fair PARIS PHOTO.

The artistic positions of the exhibition "The End / Not the End?" reflect on the progressing destruction of our planet as well as the resulting need for action. They question artificial intelligences about the future of the world, describe the climate crisis as a temporally and spatially delimited hyper object and find new, haptic images for the dying of ecosystems, that are essential to the balance of nature and the planet. Their works address illegal waste disposal as well as the effects of coal mining or the permanent pollution of rivers through water use in large cities in Germany. They also impressively visualise the influence our consumer behaviour has on regions of other continents, be it the hunting of protected animals in Mongolia or the mining of lithium in Argentina. The images produced by the artists are also an emotional wake-up call that a quick reaction to the climate crisis is possible and necessary.
