Landscape without Horizon: Near and Far in Contemporary Photography

Landscape without Horizon: Near and Far in Contemporary Photography
Library Shelf Location 27.PAUS
Publication Date 2010
Description In the landscape photography chosen for this catalogue, there is one thing that all the pictures have in common: the horizon is missing.The catalogue shows works by 15 international contemporary photographers, each of whom in their own specific view of landscape blends out the separating and and defining horizon. The absence of the horizon as a borderline between heaven and earth, as an orientation mark between above and below, is demonstrated by the illustrated photographs, opening up new and unforeseen perspectives of landscapes that seem familiar to us. Accepted patterns of reception and the self-assurance of man in his place in the world, for which the visible horizon is all-important, are questioned in very different ways. Artists: Dieter Appelt, Boris Becker, Daniel Gustav Cramer, Natalie Czech, Miklos Gaál, Andreas Gefeller, Jitka Hanzlová, Naoya Hatakeyama, Zhao Liang, Taiji Matsue, Walter Niedermayr, Thomas Struth, Adam Thompson, Timm Ulrichs, Thomas Wrede
