Mammoth Hunters

23 Oct 2020 – 22 Oct 2021


The Russian Republic of Sakha in north-eastern Siberia, also known as Yakutia, is the setting to a story worthy of Jules Verne.

Due to global warming, the permafrost in the region is melting - a phenomenon with yet unknown geological and climactic consequences for the planet, but a fascinating window into the past for historians and biologists. The soil is releasing what it has been preserving for 4000 years: the remains of the woolly mammoth.

This has turned some of the population around th… more

25 Sep 2020 – 24 Sep 2021



Clervaux is in the north of Luxembourg. The name designates both a town and a municipality. In terms of area, Clervaux is about the second largest municipality in the country. By population numbers, however, it is far less dense than other municipalities further south. This is explained by its very rural geographic situation.

Nowadays, rural areas tend to be underestimated and reduced to simple, agricultural stereotypes. But the rural regions of Luxembourg are part of a political strategy p… more

Arctic Zero

25 Sep 2020 – 24 Sep 2021


Svalbard is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Its territory is tied to Norway, but as a demilitarised zone it has a neutral status. The name "Svalbard" in Norwegian denotes a "cool coast", which seems somewhat of an understatement, as the average temperature lies around -6°C.

Not every story has its origin in the thousand roots of the Orient. Some come to us from the northern reaches; their intensity and tension can easily keep up with their famous cousins from the E… more

"(…) a place where endless thoughts make way for endless horizons." Jeroen Hofman

From the Luxembourgish vantage point, "the North" – provided it doesn’t begin within its own borders – is only three hours away by car.

"Zeeland" is a popular holiday destination in general. People from various nationalities gather here, at the edge of the North Sea. The coastline still shows so-called natural traces within the cultural landscape, meaning th… more

WHITE NIGHT

WHITE NIGHT

10 Jul 2020 – 9 Apr 2021
Light is a global phenomenon. In its natural cycle, it is subject to the laws of a rhythmic iteration, but in an artificial context, it defies all laws.

In contrast to its natural counterpart, industrial light is a convenient and easily controlled source of illumination. The subtle differences in intensity and rich colours observable during the authentic transition from day to night are missing in the human-created scenario. Think of a universally applicable system presented in a linear form: t… more

1h

27 Jul 2020 – 26 Mar 2021



"1h" – One hour is the duration of Hans-Christian Schink’s gaze towards the sun, and the name of its pictorial representation through photography. He uses overexposures, called solarisations, which are only possible through analogue methods.

The sun is rarely considered as a physical element. Its constant presence as a star is largely ignored by our consciousness. Human optical perception registers degrees of brightness and uses contrasts for orientation.

She Disappeared Into Complete Silence

25 Oct 2019 – 23 Oct 2020


The quality of light, according to Mona Kuhn, is measured in nuances of colour and – as strange as it may seam – even in sounds, or the absence of sounds. The photographer has translated this empirical experience into photographic images. Her journey towards the light took her to the Joshua Tree desert in California.

As a classical symphony is built upon rhythm and the development of an initial motif, so the potential of light is observable through its rhythmic and evolving intens… more

"A brave new world". The work of Andreas Gefeller shows parallels to Aldous Huxley’s novel. This also explains the title of the collection of photographs: “Soma”, the name of the drug which is meant to alter and make reality bearable in Huxley’s literary universe.

The photographic work "Soma" by the German photographer offers insights into an artificial, sin… more

Sun in an Empty Room

27 Sep 2019 – 25 Sep 2020




Anna Lehmann-Brauns photographs rooms and architectures. She does not consider herself to be an architecture photographer, however, and denies doing documentary work.

Born and based in Berlin, she sees her role as much more akin to that of a director of photography. Just like in film, she creates visual worlds by using light and shadow. Choosing her position carefully, she combines perspectives with subjective, spatial ideas, based on moods and memories.

These are quiet compositions, empha… more

17 Sep 2019 – 16 Sep 2020

To enter the pictorial world of François Fontaine, there is no way around the Big Screen and film. Cinematography works with a collection of animated images, whereas its cousin photography is based on the static image. But both media rely on a common source: light.

Light fuels the universe. It braves this deep and anonymous space with its creative force. The look to the stars arises from every man’s desire to discover the origin of all existence. Light offers an opening into this … more

29 Mar 2019 – 27 Jul 2020

David Spero‘s "Settlements" draw the portrait of a few communities in Britain that have chosen to partially separate and live in parallel from so-called mainstream society out of ecological considerations. Spero uses documentary-style imagery to illustrate the creative potential and pioneering spirit displayed by these groups on their quest for new, alternative
modes of existence.

His work shows homemade houses and their inhabitants, as well as the gardens that allow them to su… more

In his series "My aunt Juliette", Denis Dailleux sees his gaze returned in a unique and playful way by his great-aunt. The dialogue between the two protagonists is a constant exchange, making the series appear like a power play. This aunt Juliette is a strong character: she plays the queen, poses as a peasant, appears as grandmother, defies her age which shows her fragility, all the while maintaining her rebellious gaze. She confronts the photographer and claims the camera's v… more

28 Sep 2018 – 27 Sep 2019



Susan Barnett‘s "Not In Your Face" is a collection of photographic images approaching the portrait genre from an unconventional angle.

The entire series by the U.S. photographer is based on the principle of the figure seen from the back. In the Visual Arts sciences, this is a design element of symbolic significance: the figure’s back reproduced in two dimensions enables the real life viewer to take the subject’s place in the picture and see what the depicted pers… more

Isabelle Graeff moved to England after a death in the family. Coming to terms with significant events in a person’s life requires time for recentering and questioning of identity. The personal circumstances intuitively put the German photographer in tune with the particular atmosphere in a country on the threshold of the Brexit decision.

Her work is not beholden to a specific genre. Isabelle Graeff’s snapshots seem to draw a portrait of the country. Just as the change of seasons… more

The concept of the "Heimat" – the Home(land) – can be found in all languages, though not every language has a single, familiar term for it. “Heimat” unites different layers of meaning.

At the geographic level, the home represents a specific place, a region defined by its familiarity. Exploring no longer presents a challenge, but instead evokes a feeling of comfort. At the social level, it is analogous to community and belonging: the bosom of the family or t… more

17 May 2018 – 16 May 2019



The title of Kati Bruder’s work combines two concepts, which are in fact opposites: we and the others. What usually stands in confrontation to one another meets in agreement, on the same level. The title becomes a statement calling for reconciliation, for an acceptance of differences and contrasts, and even for new reflections and encounters. The "We" prevents a comfortable distance wherefrom the observer can look at and judge the world in order to dissociate himself from wha… more

13 Apr 2018 – 12 Apr 2019
The word  "citizen" comes from the Latin civis and refers to those who have the right of citizenship, thus those who belong to the inhabitants of a city. In the course of time, history broadened the concept of citizenship to the level of the nation, referring to the citizens of a country. Nowadays, the term can refer to an even larger territory, such as the citizens of the European Union for instance.

To be a citizen or not to be a citizen? This question is an existential one, be… more

30 Mar 2018 – 29 Mar 2019
For his work The Third Day Henrik Spohler travels in stages from the north of Germany through the Netherlands to Spain and onwards to the USA, close to the Mexican border. The photographer from Hamburg searches for what human beings have redefined, reproduced and commercialised under the term “nature” in the course of the last few decades. His search is rewarded. He finds a monumental world, or a parallel universe even, which surpasses the imagination of the unsuspecting consumer. Th… more

Yvon Lambert has an interest for borders and what they symbolise. Ten year long has he been traveling throughout border crossings. His impressive black & white photographs bring us deep within the historical context behind the scenes.



"The common factor linking all the locations depicted in these photographic stories is that they were or still are home to border crossings.

Sophie Hatier photographs the residents of the "Académie Equestre de Versailles", run by Bartabas. The way she looks at them, make them look fragile and vulnerable. Each horse expresses a personality, unmistakably recognizable, although they remain optically very similar.


Lacking colour and contrast, the images are instead like monochromes invoking multi-layered interpretations. Observers instinctively recognise the elegance, temperament, passion, kindness, sovereignty, indivi… more

Olaf Otto Becker is concerned with traces left behind by humankind on nature and that are visible. He is a witness of our time, revealing the damages caused by modern society’s careless attitude towards nature, always requiring more space. The photographs show us the impact of human activities on nature, as well as the existence of artificial nature "substitutes".

The photographic installation by Ina Schoenenburg features excerpts from four different image series: > Flashback > Blickwechsel > Portraits > Schmale Pfade

In art, as in other areas of society, it is com- mon to take a stand, to disclose what one believes or else does not believe. This is a polarising attitude that demands clarity and distinctness. It is a game of “take it or leave it”, a phenomenon of western society, which has seemingly become an end in it- self, that of pursuing a single objective, a single truth, in a bid to assume global pro- portions in a globalised world. Everything is tangible, doable and can be explained. An … more

Tamas Dezso paints a summary portrait of contemporary Romania. The country is struggling to shed the shackles of its political past, which has pervaded the country’s tangible and intangible rural heritage. This tenuous situation threatens to bury an entire cultural world. At the same time, it gives the photographs a surrealistic and narrative feel.

A stage curtain reveals a small triangular opening at floor level. Wooden floorboards extend beyond the gap, beyond the boundary drawn by th… more

"Extraordinary Voyages" by Christian Tagliavini is a photographic work that transports the observer into the world of literature, a world in which images adopt a distinct 19th-century aesthetic and evoke an almost cinematographic language. The work's title is both tribute and citation: it refers to the eponymous collection of 54 works penned by French writer Jules Verne.

The photographs, composed according to visual art rules, divulge a third passion of their author, namely tha… more

"Once time only" is a metaphor of the finiteness of all things and living creatures. Corinne Mercadier expresses what is a categorical fact, the universally acknowledged inescapable principle of life: the beginning of every story inexorably leads to its end.

Disregarding its ontological and slightly oppressive reality, the photographic series comes across as subtle, ambiguous, joyful and dreamlike. The figurative motifs recount the mythical tales of the wind, this mystifying and unb… more

Dreams and visions are a fleeting product of our brain and yet they require a projection surface outside the conceptual world. What could be better suited to this than the vastness of space?

In his images, Finnish photographer Janne Lehtinen captures the individual and human aspiration of continuously wanting to push one's boundaries. "Sacred Bird" showcases various flight contraptions designed by the author himself.

The images convey a sense of creative freedom and possess a subtle humour; even so, the photographic sequences may appear strange, occasionally absurd. For all their poetic winsomeness, the contraptions seem anachronistic and fragile and will never ful… more

A "constellation" is an entity originating from something concrete yet still able to evolve freely. It is flexible and can gather and assemble additional elements and take on various forms under the influence of a creative and irrational spirit. The term is also associated with the more illustrative world of astronomy. This paradigm is born from the subjective view of an observer, who traces the fragments by interconnecting them to form a new entity, a fictive pattern that in itself … more
