The associations 68elf e.V. and Odonien present as part of the PHOTOKINA 2016
A human without space is not conceivable. The first space a belly, then maybe the incubator, the cot, there are many spaces in someone’s whole life , private rooms, public rooms, imaginated rooms, in the end the coffin or the urn. Humans create and limit rooms. Everything you live and experience, also the imagination, always deals with space. Space is a basic physical as well as a philosophical category.
What’s special about this year’s exhibition? The chosen works are going to be presented as a projector presentation. It will take place at an art area called “Odonien”, the well-known place of event created by the artist Odo Rumpf. We will be able to project the works on two or even three big screens, located in the extraordinary scene of civilization trash, rust sculptures an carwracks – it is itself a very special place.
The exhibition “Human’s Spaces“ is the third project of the art association 68elf, Cologne that is based on a discussion with Edward Steichen’s exhibition project “The Family of Man“. Steichens understanding of humanism and his attempt to perform an overall view of the human existence with photography is the intellectual background of our concept.
The event is part of the “International Photoscene 2016” which takes place at the same time as “photokina” and it will be advertised in their catalogue (analogue and digital) and on their website.
