Trailer of the exhibition opening by Stefan Daub (duration: 01:00)

As part of the 11. Darmstadt Photography Days “Bizarre Escapes – Humour in photography” , the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt shows its first outdoor photography exhibition HOME SWEET HOME. At six central locations in the city and in the Konsum Mathildenhöhe (Pützerstraße 6, 64283 Darmstadt) the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt presents 90 photographic works by international artists and make them usable for art in public space for the first time in Germany.

Humour is not resigned; it is rebellious. It signifies not only the triumph of the ego but also of the pleasure principle, which is able here to assert itself against the unkindness of the real circumstances. (Sigmund Freud)

In HOME SWEET HOME, the own home becomes an unconventional projection surface for different confrontations: with oneself, own past or origin – or with a partner. The cozy home serves as a refuge and protected space, in which – inspired by the imagination – bizarre escape opportunities arise.

The exhibition, curated by Julia Reichelt (Head of the Kunstforum der TU Darmstadt), brings together international stars of the photo art scene such as Erwin Wurm and Ren Hang, the pioneers of staged photography Anna and Bernhard Blume. It shows the photographic works of AdeY, Pixy Liao, and Alexey Shlyk for the first time in Germany and to this extent the Finnish artist Iiu Susiraja.

With artworks by: AdeY, Katrin Binner, Anna & Bernhard Blume, Ren Hang, Andy Kassier, Pixy Liao, Alexey Shlyk, Iiu Susiraja, Erwin Wurm
