Release video documentation: Talk with Inka Schube (Sprengel Museum Hannover) and Wolfgang Kil (critic / architect)Wednesday, 20 January 2021
Organized by: neue Gesellschaft für bildende Kunst
Release of the talk from 21 November 2020
Moderation: Jochen Becker (AG station urbaner kulturen)
As curator for photography at the Sprengel Museum Hannover, Inka Schube organised the first major retrospective of Helga Paris' photographs in 2004 and more recently at the Akademie der Künste on Pariser Platz in Berlin. She is also the editor of the book recently published by Spector Verlag with photographs of Leipzig's main railway station, which she rediscovered in Paris’ archive. Her exhibition »Helga Paris Photography/Photography« is being shown all over the world by Germany’s Institute for Foreign Relations. Inka Schube was also involved in the »The Hellersdorf Project«.
Wolfgang Kil studied with Ulrich Wüst in Weimar - Kil Architecture, Wüst Urban Planning. Both initially worked in these professions, but soon gave them up, as they could no longer see any room for creativity in the technocratisation of GDR urbanism. While Wüst concentrated on artistic photography with a focus on city views, Wolfgang Kil worked as a critic on photography and urbanity.
The discussion will focus on the particularities of the photographs currently exhibited in the station urbaner kulturen.
