Pictures by one of the most important German photographers of our time will be presented as part of a retrospective at the Arts and Cultural Gallery of Khon Kaen University throughout August.
Presented by Goethe-Institute, the "Sibylle Bergemann: Photographien" exhibition features fashion, reportage, essays, landscape and portraits by Sibylle Bergemann, a Berlin-born artist whose works always reflect the theme "something is not consistent".
Bergemann's interested in "the edge of the world" and the "non-exchangeable". Her photos become symbols that tell their stories in subtle nuances. Her works play with the desire of the viewer as they interpret correlations of reality and take a stand.
She distinguished in their photos a realistic, multi-faceted cultural image of Germany. Most of the works are fashion and portrait photos from the 1960s to today, which emerged both as a commissioned work for Sibylle or GEO magazines and as part of independent projects.
The opening ceremony is on July 31 at 5pm. There will also be a public lecture on "Documentary Tendencies in Contemporary Photography" conducted by curator Dr Ursula Zeller on Aug 3 from 9.30am to 11.30am.
