In our current exhibition we are presenting selected photographs from TALMID, a work for which Jörn Vanhöfen followed the 1873 journals of a twenty-eight-year-old man on his travels through the Middle East.
In September 1873, Ignaz Goldziher started his five-month journey to the Middle East in Budapest. He was young, eloquent, inquisitive, daring and, as a devout Jew, educated in the scriptures of Judaism and Islam. The scholarly destinations of his trip were the libraries and cultural sites of Islam in Damascus and Cairo, as well as Jewish sites in Israel, Damascus, and Constantinople. He searched for historical scriptures, researched Islamic teachings and the Arabic language, and was the first non-Muslim granted permission to study at Al Azhar University in Cairo. His personal journals from this trip reveal his joy and sadness, passion and curiosity, in addition to his aversions and arrogance; in other words, the multi-faceted portrait of a twenty-eight-year-old young man who is full of expectation and eagerly yearns to experience the world. With his life’s work, Ignaz Goldziher is regarded as the founder of modern Islamic studies. He taught at various European universities and in 1905 was the first Jew to be appointed a lifetime position as professor in Budapest. November 13, 2021 will mark the 100th anniversary of Ignaz Goldziher’s death.
Nearly 150 years later, Jörn Vanhöfen followed this very emotional journal and traveled to a region shaped by the Arab Spring, political-religious conflicts, and the aftermath of the war in Syria.
Once again, the results are images of beauty and horror, i.e. a continuation of his work from AFTERMATH (2011) and LOOP (2015), set this time within a cultural-historical context.
Jörn Vanhöfen, born in Dinslaken in 1961, studied photography at the Folkwang School in Essen. Published books include: Aftermath, Hatje Cantz Verlag (2011);HeimatFront with Charles Simic, Verlag Thomas Reche (2013); LOOP, self-published (2015); and Herzwort and Kopfwort with Herta Müller, Verlag Thomas Reche (2016).

Barbara Probst. Streets, Fashion, Nudes, Still Lifes
06. März - 06. Juni 2021

Die fotografischen Bildreihen der seit 2000 entstandenen Exposures von Barbara Probst umfassen Straßenszenen, Close-Ups, Stillleben, Akt-, Studio-, Landschafts- und auch Modeauf­nahmen.

Alle Exposures der 1964 in München geborenen und in New York lebenden Fotografin verbindet ihr spezifischer Entstehungsprozess: Die aus bis zu vierzehn Einzelbildern bestehenden Bildreihen erfassen einen Moment simultan aus verschiedenen Kamerapositionen, die durch einen über Funkwellen gesteuerten Auslösemechanismus miteinander verbunden sind. Diese multiperspektivische Sichtweise auf ein und dieselbe Situation ermöglicht es, diese ohne eine Veränderung des Standortes gleichzeitig aus verschiedenen Perspektiven zu sehen: ein visuelles Paradoxon, das grundlegende Wahrnehmungsparameter konterkariert. Denn der Mensch kann niemals dieselbe Szene im gleichen Augenblick aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven betrachten.

Die Kunsthalle Nürnberg präsentiert in der Ausstellung Barbara Probst. Streets, Fashion, Nudes, Still Lifes eine eindrucksvolle Auswahl aus der aktuell rund 160 Arbeiten umfassenden Werkreihe der Exposures, beginnend mit der ersten ArbeitExposure #1: N. Y. C., 545 8th Avenue, 01.07.00, 10:37 p.m., die 2000 auf einem New Yorker Hochhausdach entstanden ist. Ebenso umfasst die Ausstellung ganz aktuelle Werke aus dem Frühjahr 2020, die Barbara Probst während des durch die Corona-Pandemie bedingten Shutdowns in New York aufgenommen hat: Die Straßen und Plätze der Metropole sind verwaist, und das hyperaktive Treiben der beschleunigten Wirtschaftswelt ist zum Erliegen gekommen.

Auch präsentiert die Kunsthalle Nürnberg einige Exposures, die in den vergangenen Jahren im Fashionkontext für zum Beispiel die Vogue Italia, das britische Magazin Wallpaper* oder für Modeunternehmen wie Marni und Versace entstanden sind. Dabei verschiebt die Künstlerin die Hierarchie der Dinge, denn Mode und Kosmetik, eigentlicher Anlass dieser Aufnahmen, werden zu einem Gestaltungselement neben vielen anderen Der Fokus liegt wie bei allen Exposures auf der zentralen Frage nach unserer Wahrnehmung. Wir werden zur Analyse und kritischen Hinterfragung wie Selbstbeobachtung herausgefordert. Die Bildreihen zeigen: Auch im exakt gleichen Moment kann die Welt anders aussehen und eine Situation eine andere Deutung erfahren, wenn wir nur unsere Perspektive, unseren Standpunkt verändern. Diese wahrnehmungspsychologische Erkenntnis provoziert eine generelle Hinterfragung unseres Realitätsbegriffs, denn wie können wir unsere Sicht der Dinge, verallgemeinern, wenn derselbe Augenblick so unterschiedlich wahrgenommen werden kann? Durch die Multiperspektivität der Exposures von Barbara Probst wird offenkundig, dass die Fotografie nie die Realität abbildet, sondern nur eine von unendlich vielen Sichtweisen auf diese.

Zur Ausstellung erscheint bei Hartmann Books ein umfangreicher Katalog mit zahlreichen Werkabbildungen sowie Texten von Barbara Probst und Essays von Brian Sholis und Harriet Zilch (Hardcover, 112 Seiten mit fünf Klapptafeln, Deutsch/Englisch, ISBN 978-3-96070-061-6).



Barbara Probst. Streets, Fashion, Nudes, Still Lifes

The photographic series Exposures, which Barbara Probst has produced since 2000, involves street scenes, close-ups, still lifes, nudes, landscapes, and studio and fashion photography. All of the Exposures were created in a specific way by the photographer, who was born in Munich in 1964 and lives in New York. Consisting of up to fourteen individual pictures, each of the multipart series captures a single moment simultaneously from various perspectives using cameras that are synchronized by a radio-controlled shutter release mechanism. Using this method, Probst creates multiperspective views of one single event that enable viewers to see one moment from different perspectives without changing their position. This visual paradox thwarts basic parameters of perception: humans can only grasp a situation from one point of view, since it is impossible to assume multiple positions at once.

The Kunsthalle Nürnberg is presenting an impressive selection of Exposures, which currently consists of about 160 individual series, in the exhibition Barbara Probst: Streets, Fashion, Nudes, Still Lifes, beginning with Exposure #1: N. Y. C., 545 8th Avenue, 01.07.00, 10:37 p.m., which was created in 2000 on the roof of a high-rise in New York. The exhibition also features current works from early 2020, taken by Probst in New York during the shutdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The streets and squares of the city are abandoned, and the hyperactive hustle of the business world has been halted. Enhanced by this unaccustomed state of standstill, architectural and urban details are revealed that we would probably not have noticed in everyday life.

The Kunsthalle Nürnberg is also presenting several Exposures that were published in the fashion context for magazines such as Vogue Italia and Wallpaper* or for labels such as Marni and Versace. Probst shifts the hierarchy of things in these works: fashion and cosmetics, the real reason for the pictures, are relegated to being one of many elements of design. The focus is—as is the case with all of the other series and tableaux of Exposures—on the central issue of the perception of the viewers, who are challenged to analyze and critically question as well as observe themselves. Probst's Exposures prove that, even at exactly the same moment, if we as viewers only minimally change our position, the world’s appearance can be different and a situation can be interpreted differently. This insight, which is a familiar concept in perception psychology, necessitates a general scrutiny of our concept of reality as well as our personal perception: how can we universalize our outlook if the same moment can be perceived in such different ways? The multiple perspectives in Probst’s work make it clear that instead of replicating reality itself, photography actually reflects an infinite number of possible views of reality.

Barbara Probst studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and was also in the photography class of Bernd Becher at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf. Her photographs have been included in numerous exhibitions in Europe and in the United States, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, the National Museum of Photography in Copenhagen, the Rudolfinum in Prague, and LE BAL in Paris. Her works are part of the collections of many public institutions, including the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, the Museum Folkwang in Essen, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

An extensive catalogue, including numerous illustrations, texts by Barbara Probst, and essays by Brian Sholis and Harriet Zilch, will be published by Hartmann Books to accompany the exhibition (hardcover, 112 pages with five foldouts, German/English, ISBN 978-3-96070-061-6).

Here are a couple of installation views of our current exhibition "Norm Connect Modul Feld" with works by Peter K. Koch. They operate between genres, translating painterly techniques into three-dimensional space through an experimental use of materials. Thereby, they mutate into image-objects.
Due to the current circumstances, the exhibition can only be viewed from outside or by appointment. For more information, we are here for you via phone, mail and in our space in Linienstraße 158. Stay healthy, everyone!

Here are some wonderful installation shots from the great Barbara Probst show at Kunsthalle Nuremberg. All photos: © Annette Kradisch, Nürnberg KUNSTHALLE NÜRNBERG Barbara Probst. Streets, Fashion, Nudes, Still Lifes 06. März - 06. Juni 2021 Die fotografischen Bildreihen der seit 2000 entstandenen Exposures von Barbara Probst umfassen Straßenszenen, Close-Ups, Stillleben, Akt-, Studio-, Landschafts- und auch Modeauf­nahmen. Alle Exposures der 1964 in München geborenen und in New York lebenden Fotografin verbindet ihr spezifischer Entstehungsprozess: Die aus bis zu vierzehn Einzelbildern bestehenden Bildreihen erfassen einen Moment simultan aus verschiedenen Kamerapositionen, die durch einen über Funkwellen gesteuerten Auslösemechanismus miteinander verbunden sind.

C., 545 8th Avenue, 01.07.00, 10:37 p.m., die 2000 auf einem New Yorker Hochhausdach entstanden ist. Ebenso umfasst die Ausstellung ganz aktuelle Werke aus dem Frühjahr 2020, die Barbara Probst während des durch die Corona-Pandemie bedingten Shutdowns in New York aufgenommen hat: Die Straßen und Plätze der Metropole sind verwaist, und das hyperaktive Treiben der beschleunigten Wirtschaftswelt ist zum Erliegen gekommen. Auch präsentiert die Kunsthalle Nürnberg einige Exposures, die in den vergangenen Jahren im Fashionkontext für zum Beispiel die Vogue Italia, das britische Magazin Wallpaper* oder für Modeunternehmen wie Marni und Versace entstanden sind. Dabei verschiebt die Künstlerin die Hierarchie der Dinge, denn Mode und Kosmetik, eigentlicher Anlass dieser Aufnahmen, werden zu einem Gestaltungselement neben vielen anderen Der Fokus liegt wie bei allen Exposures auf der zentralen Frage nach unserer Wahrnehmung. Wir werden zur Analyse und kritischen Hinterfragung wie Selbstbeobachtung herausgefordert. Die Bildreihen zeigen: Auch im exakt gleichen Moment kann die Welt anders aussehen und eine Situation eine andere Deutung erfahren, wenn wir nur unsere Perspektive, unseren Standpunkt verändern.

Durch die Multiperspektivität der Exposures von Barbara Probst wird offenkundig, dass die Fotografie nie die Realität abbildet, sondern nur eine von unendlich vielen Sichtweisen auf diese. Zur Ausstellung erscheint bei Hartmann Books ein umfangreicher Katalog mit zahlreichen Werkabbildungen sowie Texten von Barbara Probst und Essays von Brian Sholis und Harriet Zilch (Hardcover, 112 Seiten mit fünf Klapptafeln, Deutsch/Englisch, ISBN 978-3-96070-061-6). Barbara Probst. Streets, Fashion, Nudes, Still Lifes The photographic series Exposures, which Barbara Probst has produced since 2000, involves street scenes, close-ups, still lifes, nudes, landscapes, and studio and fashion photography. All of the Exposures were created in a specific way by the photographer, who was born in Munich in 1964 and lives in New York. Consisting of up to fourteen individual pictures, each of the multipart series captures a single moment simultaneously from various perspectives using cameras that are synchronized by a radio-controlled shutter release mechanism. Using this method, Probst creates multiperspective views of one single event that enable viewers to see one moment from different perspectives without changing their position. This visual paradox thwarts basic parameters of perception: humans can only grasp a situation from one point of view, since it is impossible to assume multiple positions at once. The Kunsthalle Nürnberg is presenting an impressive selection of Exposures, which currently consists of about 160 individual series, in the exhibition Barbara Probst: Streets, Fashion, Nudes, Still Lifes, beginning with Exposure #1: N. Y. C., 545 8th Avenue, 01.07.00, 10:37 p.m., which was created in 2000 on the roof of a high-rise in New York. The exhibition also features current works from early 2020, taken by Probst in New York during the shutdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The streets and squares of the city are abandoned, and the hyperactive hustle of the business world has been halted. Enhanced by this unaccustomed state of standstill, architectural and urban details are revealed that we would probably not have noticed in everyday life. The Kunsthalle Nürnberg is also presenting several Exposures that were published in the fashion context for magazines such as Vogue Italia and Wallpaper* or for labels such as Marni and Versace. Probst shifts the hierarchy of things in these works: fashion and cosmetics, the real reason for the pictures, are relegated to being one of many elements of design. The focus is—as is the case with all of the other series and tableaux of Exposures—on the central issue of the perception of the viewers, who are challenged to analyze and critically question as well as observe themselves. Probst's Exposures prove that, even at exactly the same moment, if we as viewers only minimally change our position, the world’s appearance can be different and a situation can be interpreted differently. This insight, which is a familiar concept in perception psychology, necessitates a general scrutiny of our concept of reality as well as our personal perception: how can we universalize our outlook if the same moment can be perceived in such different ways? The multiple perspectives in Probst’s work make it clear that instead of replicating reality itself, photography actually reflects an infinite number of possible views of reality. Barbara Probst studied sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and was also in the photography class of Bernd Becher at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf. Her photographs have been included in numerous exhibitions in Europe and in the United States, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, the National Museum of Photography in Copenhagen, the Rudolfinum in Prague, and LE BAL in Paris. Her works are part of the collections of many public institutions, including the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, the Museum Folkwang in Essen, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. An extensive catalogue, including numerous illustrations, texts by Barbara Probst, and essays by Brian Sholis and Harriet Zilch, will be published by Hartmann Books to accompany the exhibition (hardcover, 112 pages with five foldouts, German/English, ISBN 978-3-96070-061-6).
