25|7

Carolin Saage: 25|7

Booklaunch + Opening: July 25, 7pm

Exhibition: July 26 – August 27, 2013

Portraits

Photography was probably the only thing that was expressly forbidden at Bar25. And for good reason. Coming together here, season after season, behind the bare wall of an abandoned construction site on the banks of the Spree in Berlin, was a colorful group of people whose dress and make-up were not expressions of style or coolness, but signs of freedom and vulnerability.  

25|7, like the bar itself, is a small miracle: breathtaking natural photography of a secret tribe that celebrates letting go. Deliberately holds on to nothing. For, whoever can remember, was not there. It’s good that Carolin Saage had everyone’s trust. And her affectionate, terrific eye.

The book will be published the same day at seltmann + söhne and will be available in the gallery and online on www.seltmannundsoehne.de

The exhibition is presented by A&O – www.aando-berlin.com

The 21st century has brought about seismic changes in photography, technology, fashion, and art. At the nexus of these exciting movements is a group of fashion photographers who are breaking ground in a variety of ways, including cultural referencing, digital imaging, photo manipulation, and the use of new media. The stunningly illustrated book „New Fashion Photography“ (Prestel) profiles 28 artists from around the world. New fashion portraiture is challenging conventional ideas of beauty by confronting us with the unexpected. The photographers explore new avenues previously off-limits, opening the art of fashion photography to thrilling possibilities.

His 20 plus years of experience has helped the most renowned and sought after models and celebrities bare their personalities as well as their bodies on the printed page. “Iconic Bodies” is a collection of moments when the camera disappeared and the subject was truly revealed.

For Your Pleasure

Opening: Thursday, July 26, 7pm

Exhibition: July 27 – September 1, 2012

Portraits

The Rock Princess of Photography

Before she returns to New York, the Berlin gallery CONTRIBUTED tributes a solo show to the special photographer Hadley Hudson. In 1994 the American for the first time came to europe, lived in Paris and Munich and discovered the Berlin scene for herself. She took pictures of Peaches in White Trash and Cobra Killer in Bastard, worked for Rolling Stone, 032c, Qvest, Liebling, Neon and DIE ZEIT; followed by publications in Self Service, the New York Times Magazine, the French Playboy and the British Vogue. Hadley Hudson’s works are marked with a mastered interplay between eroticism and punk, sensuality and excess. She symbolises the image of an epoch in which music and art come together and merge.

Stuff We Love

Donovan & Matthias Vriens-McGrath

invite you to: BL33N

Opening: Friday, June 8, 2012, 7pm

Exhibition: June 9 – July 14, 2012

Portraits

What is BL33N? Who is BL33N? Where is BL33N?

BL33N revolutionises a new form of art. Sexuality should not be forced into taboos, furthermore it should be recognised and celebrated. Music meets fashion meets photography meets sex meets the viewer. The significant aspect of this project is the interaction between made photographers, unknown artists and random images that fit and are seen as beautiful. Donovan & Matthias Vriens-McGrath show their perspective of the things and give the world a chance to see what they see: stuff they love. Because not only the artists are BL33N, everyone is BL33N.

Vintages & Icons 1964-1976

Contributed presents: MARK MENDER

Opening: Friday, April 20, 2012

Exhibition: April 21 - June 2, 2012

Portraits

Classics, newly discovered: He was the avant-garde among the fashion photographers – »being creative and being innovative« his leitmotif. Mark Mender put his focus long before his colleagues on »location«.

The setting defines his work and tells about exciting stories from all around the world. From Alaska to Vermont represents Mender the zeitgeists of a generation – the swinging sixties and saucy seventies have been barely better expressed by any other photographer. Despite huge protests of his clients, he stopped 1981 with photography to apply himself to computer animation. 2012 Mender decided to open his archive. CONTRIBUTED has the honour to present his first single exhibition.

die ärzte

CONTRIBUTED presents: VIDEO VERNISSAGE die ärzte

Exhibition: April 13 - 15, 2012; 12 – 6 pm

Portraits

In sixteen video studies Die Ärzte have let their “tonal destruction of expectations” translated in moved pictures by sixteen selected artists.

Contentwise they merge stiffed photographic depictions of their own which simulate movement because of its fast sequel, depicted as metaphor on the illusion of the arts. The sixteen virtual worlds, passed through the avatars of Die Ärzte, have been constructed by the sixteen demiurges in a totally new and free way.

Locked in the Arms of
a Beautiful Life

Contributed presents: Vincent Peters

Opening: Thursday, December 1, 2011

Exhibition: December 2, 2011 - January 14, 2012

Portraits

The work of Vincent Peters is distinctive: cinematic, charismatic and very sexy. In his images he creates iconic landscapes that hark back to the days of old Hollywood in lightning and compositional style but with a sexual contemporary edge.

Lightning plays a contructive key role for Peters: “I think it defines everything. You look at the same house, the same tree, the same building in different light and it’s a different subject. Everything can change. A person can change, personality, character, sensuality, everything changes in a particular light.”

Vincent Peters was born in Germany in 1969. Since 1998 he works as a professional photographer. He lives in Paris. His work has been published in Allure, Elle, GQ, Numéro, Vanity Fair & Vogue. His clients have included Bottega Veneta, Cartier, Celine, De Beers, Diesel, Emporio Armani, Guerlain, Hugo Boss, Joop!, Lancôme, Laura Biagotti, Levi’s, L’Oréal, Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu, Nike, Sinja Rykiel, Versace, Viktoria’s Secret, La Perla, Yves Saint Laurent.

Remember Tolerance

MICHALSKY presents: Martin Diepold, Peter

Grosslaub, Dorothea Tuch – „Remember Tolerance“

Lyrics by Johannes Finke

Opening: Thursday, August 25, 2011, 7 pm

Exhibition: August 26 – September 21, 2011

Portraits

CONTRIBUTED is showing photo and video work which was created during the last MICHALSKY StyleNite in July 2011. The exhibition interprets the topic “Tolerance” from a different angle. Photos and videos illustrate the working environment of the well-known Berlin designer Michael Michalsky and also presents an emotional and artistic documentation of the MICHALSKY StyleNite.

The MICHALSKY fashion collection, inspired from Angela Merkels statement in which she declares that multiculti has failed, picks up several multicultural dess styles. The collection will be presented in a new additional facet: the making-of its fashion show presentation. Pictures from fittings, model castings, backstage preparations and the waiting moments present not only a concentrated but also poetic world. They communicate an emotional closeness in which its energy subsequently is unloaded on the catwalk.

The Big Show

Tush presents: ELLEN VON UNWERTH – “The Big Show”

Opening: Saturday, May 7, 7 pm

Exhibition: May 7 – July 2, 2011

Portraits

Portraits & Westerwald

Alexander Verlag Berlin presents:

Margarita Broich „Portraits & Westerwald“

Opening: March 18, 7 pm

Exhibition: March 19 – April 28, 2011

Portraits

As an actress Margarita Broich is one of the big names, but it may come as a surprise to many that she is also a photographer. After a succesful show in Salzburg in 2009 the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin is holding a huge exhibition of her work parallel to the show at CONTRIBUTED consisting of over 60 portraits of her fellow artists, including Ben Becker, Kate Winslet, Veronika Ferres, Klaus Maria Brandauer, and many more.

Margarita Broich has captured those fleeting moments when the actor sheds the role in the intervals or a few minutes after the end of a performance. CONTRIBUTED will not only present the best images of these portraits, but also unknown works together with a new series called „Westerwald“ that will premiere at the gallery.

Born in Neuwied in 1960, Margarita Broich initially studied photo design in Dortmund and worked as a theatrical photographer at the Bochum Schauspielhaus (Theatre) under Claus Peymann, before studying dramatic art herself at Berlin’s College of Arts. Since then she has appeared in numerous German-language stage performances and television dramas, working with such directors as Robert Wilson, Hermine Huntgeburth and, earlier, with Christoph Schlingensief. Publication: Margarita Broich „Wenn der Vorhang fällt/When the curtain falls – Portraits“, Alexander Verlag Berlin, 2011, 96 pages, 28 Euro

Opening: January 21, 6 pm

Exhibition: January 21 – March 12, 2011

Portraits

Mary McCartney (b 1969) started her career as a photographer in 1995. Her work is reflection not only of Marys personal world, but of the unique relationships she establishes with the people she photographs, like Kate Moss, Helen Mirren, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tracey Emin, Stella McCartney or Paul McCartney.

Her first book – From Where I Stand – combines those images with places and events as seen through Marys eyes: the intimacy of backstage preparations amoung the corps de ballet at the Royal Opera House, the raw energy of fashion shows and rock concerts, both on stage and off, the private spaces of home and family and the wittily observed vignettes of visual delight. CONTRIBUTED is proud to present the first soloshow of Mary McCartney in Germany.

Contributed presents:

Tony Duran „Adult Entertainment“

Supported by: GQ, teNeues, Veltins

Opening: October 5, 7 pm

Exhibition: October 6 – December 8, 2010

Portraits

Tony Duran has photographed a virtual who’s who of the Hollywood and fashion set. Born in Winona, Minnesota, USA, he has no formal training in photography but relies more on his past of painting and drawing that give him the unique ability to capture a sensual side not often revealed in his subjects.

The faces of Hollywood’s “A” list that have graced Duran’s lens include Sharon Stone, Cate Blanchett, Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, and Scarlett Johansson. A special relationship between Duran and Jennifer Lopez over the years has produced some of the most iconic photography of a single celebrity by one photographer.

After Peter Lindbergh and Steven Klein Duran has been chosen to shoot the famous book calendar DIEUX DU STADE for its 10th anniversary in 2010.

Miles Aldridge „13 Women“

Opening: July 9, 3:30 pm

Exhibition: July 10 – September 30, 2010

Portraits

Miles Aldridge’s pictures describe a glossy world, full of brightly illuminated, sexualized models in acid colours. With his cinematic compositions and dramatic situations his work offers a bright new vision of the post-modern world.

Aldridge, born in 1964 in London, has had solo shows in London at Hamilton’s Gallery, in New York at The Steven Kasher Gallery, in the Netherlands at The Reflex Gallery and in Paris at Colette.

Die Spieler

Medienfabrik & Strenesse present:

Ellen von Unwerth “Die Spieler”

Book presentation: June 10, 7 pm

Portraits

Ellen von Unwerth has photographed the German National Football Team for Strenesse wearing the Strenesse Menswear collection.

The result is a book entitled “Die Spieler” (“The players”), a thriller movie without any words but with pictures that speak for themselves: performances as demonic as criminals in an Orson Welles production, as threatening as a Mafia boss in well known movies, as inscrutable as a detective in Edgar Wallace mysteries or with all the sex appeal of a Southern Italian macho. Strenesse AG has been the official outfitter of the German National Football Team since the 2006 World Cup. “Die Spieler”, published by Medienfabrik, Gütersloh, comprises 200 pages, costs €39,90 and is available at www.diespieler-dasbuch.de and www.strenesse.com as well as in bookstores and Strenesse Shops.

Until Today

Hatje Cantz presents: Ralf Peters „Until Today“

Opening: March 18, 7pm

Exhibition: March 19 – May 8, 2010

Portraits

Gas stations, landscapes, and airports are favorite motifs for photographer and conceptual artist Ralf Peters (*1960 in Lüneburg).

At first glance, his images appear to be familiar, but then disturbing details become evident. Logos and lettering have been removed from the Gas Stations-series; the pictures are not faithful reproductions of given situations, but rather deliberately aesthetic renderings of the everyday environment. They decidedly reject any claim to conventional realism.

In contrast, the views from the windows of an airport in the Salta-series are reminiscent of paintings by Piet Mondrian. With these unprocessed photographs, Peters continues playing with the notions of manipulation and documentation, and comes up with astonishing results that present the viewer with insoluble puzzles.

The Twin Paradox

03-22.05.2009

Gaëlle Boucand(F), Joan Braun(F) & Noa Giniger(IL)

exhibit on the occasion of Gallery Weekend Berlin

Portraits

The Twin Paradox is a thought experiment in the theory of relativity in which a twin who journeys into space in a high-speed rocket returns home to find he has aged less than his identical twin who stayed on Earth.

The paradox is based on the phenomenon of “time dilation” whereby an observer finds that a clock, which is physically identical to his own, is ticking at a slower rate as measured by his own.  This is perceived as time “slowing down” for the other clock, but that is only true in the context of the observer’s frame of reference.

This theory is contemplated in six pieces. The Twin Paradox exhibits motion as relative: that time does slow down, reverse, loop or fast-forward in a subjective context. The paradox borders science and fiction.
