THE VIEW FROM OUTSIDE. Anna Lehmann-Brauns, 11th Darmstadt city photographer 2017

Februar 3 to April 15, 2018

Anna Lehmann-Brauns is the “Darmstadt City Photographer 2017”. She presents her view of the city under the motto “The view from outside. Photographic associations to the Cultural Center Darmstadt” from February 4 to April 15, 2018, in the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt.

In her photographic work, the Berlin artist Anna Lehmann-Brauns refuses a documentary “neutral” view. On the contrary, she shuts the places of her interest out of the environment, leaves aside the unimportant for them and focuses them consciously and decisively.

This gives the chosen subjects a meaning that has often been lost for a long time in reality. (Anna Lehmann-Braun)

In her work, she also deals with found spaces as places of individual memory. The deserted pictures are both the strong light and the special color in common. Even though the places are deserted, they still show spaces of and for people. By working out her associations to a place, a detail, an interior and thus the subjective meaning of reality, a specific picture emerges – and in the case of the exhibition “The View from the Outside. Photographic Associations to the Cultural Center Darmstadt ”a very personal view of Darmstadt.
