Göran Gnaudschun

Posted by PF at 15:42 ...

Goeran Gnaudschun, born 1971, studied at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig and was a master student of Timm Rautert. He lives and works in Potsdam.

Within the series “Longe – 44 Leningrad” (1994-1996) and “Vorher muesst ihr uns erschießen” (1996-2001) documents Gnaudschun in a subjective style his personal surroundings as a member of a punk band and a squatter in Potsdam.
In “Portraits” (1996-2001) he uses the camera as a specific tool to provoke a reaction in his counterparts. This mode of operation is continued and improved in the series “Reif” (2001-2003) and “Neue Portraits” (work in progress). Goeran Gnaudschuns portfolio is available as PDF here.

“While doing a portrait a fragile state can arise when humans apparently discover themselves. For a short moment it seems to be possible that the inside and the outside forms a unity. It takes place between tension and release, between control and self-abandonment. It is transient and the photography is the only remembrance at it.” – Goeran Gnaudschun

    es wird immer schlimmer ;) jetzt werden schon langweilige, schnoede passbilder zu kunst deklariert. hauptsache die farben sind kalt, so haelt man den aktuellen effekthascherischen trend aufrecht.

    Bei Passbildern als Kunst denke ich eher an Thomas Ruff, – bei kalten Farben und effekthascherischen Trends an all die Leute, die “Struffskys” schnöde nachbauen und scheitern.
    Göran Gnaudschun gehört ganz sicher nicht zu dieser Gruppe.
