Lisa Großkopf
Atopia
The series Atopia by Lisa Großkopf portrays an extraordinary Romanian salt mine. Due to the high salt content in the air, parts of the mine were converted into a health-promoting leisure park for visitors. In order to make the time underground as enjoyable as possible, games and sports equipment, PC places, religious devotional images and bizarre-looking object arrangements can be found there. Großkopf’s photographs show the rooms depopulated, as absurd stages of human mise-en-scène.

Lena Rosa Händle
Cuidarse es revolutionario / To care is revolutionary
Taking time, seeing, listening and engaging with the other are the starting points of this series in which Lena Rosa Händle invites women* of different generations and social classes to her temporary residency studio in Cantabria, Spain, for a dialogic portrait. “To care” becomes the common focus of these lives. Underneath each portrait hangs a text – framed just like the picture itself – written by the protagonist*, commenting on her portrait. An additional text by Lena Rosa Händle narrates observations, feelings about and comments on the encounters. These two text levels expand our views, reveal levels of social inequality, and pose questions about the nature of the portrait.

Sabine Jelinek
Le Pli
Sabine Jelinek’s most recent work deals with the theme of folds and plaits. Her photographs engage with specific sociological references to the fold, such as their Baroque staging or their use as cultural and aesthetic codes. Jelinek stages the visibility and invisibility of photographic depictions on various materials such as fabric or transparent paper, especially when these materials are folded. Interwoven are images of a bed whose folded sheets refer to the former presence of a person. Likewise, the queen bee lies “embedded in folds” in the cluster of a swarm of bees.
