The sixth edition of the renowned fair for contemporary photography again offers plenty of surprises and inspiration. The truly pioneering event taking place from 22 to 24 September at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam, offers many accompanying programs such as CO-OP, the Book Market and the Living Room, The Exhibition, Onsite Projects and City Programme.
At the Unseen Photofair, 53 international galleries are represented, 80 of the exhibiting artists will present their new photographic works, which have not yet been shown in any gallery or exhibitions.
A year after Paris attacks and the related early termination of the Paris Photo Fair 2015 the persons engaged in the cultural sector are looking into the future. There is a great solidarity – however, it is a long way to return to normality.
Here we can only show a few works from the sheer diversity of works shown in Paris this year. Probably this is nothing new for you but this is what we really like.
There are 11 days left to visit the solo exhibition of Ren Hang at the Ostlicht gallery in Vienna. Ren Hang’s work with his own imagery is unique and clear, and that’s something we are looking for. His work is sometimes disturbing, but he do not exceed the provocation. In addition to his poetry, his pictures are simply fascinating.

If you are in Berlin these days you have the chance to visit the group exhibition „Lob der Wildnis | Serial Landscapes“ at Kehrer Berlin Galerie featuring works by Henning Rogge, Arno Schidlowski and Anne Schwalbe. All these artists attracted my attention during the last year because of their beautiful pieces of work and one aspect is common to all: the subtle and even restrained approach through the realisation process of their works which I particularly like.
Henning Rogge’s photographs of craters left from bombs during the second world war all around Germany shows his exploration of the themes of war, memories and everyday life.
Only at second glance I recognized the the genius and the beauty of Arno Schidlowski’s work; you should definitely stop at Kehrer Berlin because his work should be seen as prints!
Anne Schwalbe creates her personal views of seemingly simple and everyday things and her series „Wiese“ (Meadow) reduces these views on nature to the essential – to textures of meadows.
