Anna and Bernhard Blume at Hamburger Bahnhof

June 1st, 2008 · No Comments · Artists, Germany





Hamburger Bahnhof is Berlin’s museum of contemporary art. From their website:

Artists Anna and Bernhard Blume, born in 1937, have significantly extended the genre of the staged photograph, and they number among its most renowned exponents internationally. In their frequently multipart, large format, black–and–white photoseries, this artistic couple stages temporal sequences within which they themselves act as protagonists. The scenes are often reduced, estranged, and above all odd: order and chaos seem to mutually condition one another, role–playing and convention inhere in each object, conditioning modes of behavior and provoking resistance.
