European Month of Photography: Berlin 2008
The month of November marks the European Month of Photography, a continent-wide, month long celebration of all things photographic. Exposure Project member Anastasia Cazabon is in a group show entitled The Sheath of the Self at Photo Edition Berlin. The exhibition explores "the artistic portrait, in its physical, social and psychic presence." The number of exhibitions in Berlin alone is quite daunting, but the quality of work, from what I saw, is quite high. Some of the artists on view include:
Diane Arbus, Jan Banning, Mathieu Bernard-Reymond, Angus Boulton, Mona Breede, Tacita Dean, Julia Fullerton Batten, Paul Fusco, Nan Goldin, André Kertész, Yotta Kippe, Oliver Kunkel, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andres Marroquin Winkelmann, Ryan McGinley, Hans W. Mende, Boris Mikhailov, Man Ray, Simon Roberts, Frank Röth, Sebastian Stumpf, Hiroshi Sugimoto, André Villers, Andy Warhol & Erwin Wurm
The European Month of Photography Berlin 2008 has a comprehensive website with descriptions of all the shows in the festival, not to mention a section with listings for special events and artist lectures. For anyone who happens to be in the Berlin area, or just in Europe for that matter, I would highly recommend taking advantage of this festival.
