Christian Reister: NACHT

“Nacht” (“Night”) is the title of Christian Reister’s latest series of black/white photos taken at clubs, bars, dives, takeaways and other settings of the Berliner nightlife. A first excerpt from the ongoing project will be shown in a solo exhibition at the legendary Hotel Bogota, photoplatz/Kabinett, near Kurfürstendamm, Berlin. The photos don’t show the usual glamorous pictures one might expect from the glossy magazines. Reister is interested in the collateral damages of a night gone awry and focuses on the side scenes.

At the evening of the opening there will be a special live performance of the musicians Andreas Albrecht and Marco Ponce Kärgel playing songs from Albrecht’s latest album “TAGEBUCHt” along with screenings of many more photographs from Reister’s NACHT project.

[ NACHT ] Opening: Friday, April 26th, 7pm

Reister + von Aspern project

Christian Reister and Kay von Aspern show special and very offbeat moments, encounters, discoveries and nuances of every day life from the capitals of Vienna and Berlin in a joint project. Originally inspired by Natalie Opocensky and Thorsten Strasas’ Wien | Berlin exhibition last year, Seconds2Real colleagues von Aspern and Reister create their very own version of the topic by mixing and mashing some of their best photographs from recent years in one show. This joint project it is not only an exhibition project, it’s a book project also.

Frank Silberbach Interview

Frank Silberbach is best-known for his series „Berlin 140°“ that is realized with a panoramic camera since 2004. On the occasion of his exhibitions in Galerie im Rathaus Tempelhof and Galerie Tempelhof Museum opening in Berlin this week, we met Frank to discuss his photographic approach and how he ended up making panorma photos of his hometown Berlin after travelling around the world for 15 years.

Thorsten Strasas at FENSTER61

Foto: Thorsten Strasas

Thorsten Strasas’ series “Berlin. Grey.” ist currently on exhibition at FENSTER61. FENSTER61 is a Berliner photo exhibition place in a shop window in Mitte. The exhibition will be up until the 14th of February.

From the press release:
The urban human being lives. With and within major city architecture, as well as within the spaces of urban centers. Cramped or crushed to death by wideness, occasionally like a redundant relict out of a time when he himself was the center of the colony. Crowded to the border and left over – not knowing, whereto with himself and still meeting himself along the way.
Thorsten Strasas sees and shows encounters between the human being and his environmental space. Pictures these moments and shows the rest of disappearing individuality in urban space.
