Wolfram Hahn – Book Launch in Berlin

Posted by (PF) at 7:00 ...

Wolfram Hahn

Wolfram Hahn’s work Kaffee Bankrott potraits persons who have a hard time to cope with the material contstraints of our society. They mostly fail to assert themselves in our normative system hence maintain their own special behaviour often incomprehensible to the average citizen. The aim of the project was to offer those people a possibility to introduce their situation and environment to confront the audience with it and induce a possible reaction. The portraits have been exhibited between December 2008 and January 2009 at the subway station Rosenthaler Platz in Berlin. The self-published catalogue in an edition of 300 documents the photo series and the exhibition, with a accompanying text by Daniel Klemm.

Kaffee Bankrott – Book Launch
25th August 2010, 7 pm

While the project has a documentary quality, its nonlinear approach evokes something that might be more aptly called a psychological landscape.” – Dave Anderson about his project ‘One Block’
