Artists Laurenz Berges, Jitka Hanzlová and Bernhard Fuchs have been friends since their student days in Essen and/or Düsseldorf; since then they have continually explored matters of documentary style in their respective oeuvres. What their works have in common is a contemplative conception of the image and an unwavering focus on valid images of places and people. Their groups of works have evolved over long periods of time. They always reference images of everyday constellations in which the depicted appears as universally valid. Adopting the classic reality strategies of photography as an analogue medium, they have created image cycles that have entered the public perception both as wall-mounted photographs and in book form.
Laurenz Berges was born in Cloppenburg, Germany, in 1966; he lives and works in Düsseldorf.
Bernhard Fuchs was born in Haslach an der Mühl, Upper Austria, in 1971; he lives and works in Düsseldorf. Jitka Hanzlová was born in Nachod, Czech Republic, in 1958; she lives and works in Essen.
The Berges | Fuchs | Hanzlová exhibition will be on show at Galerie Wilma Tolksdorf in Frankfurt from 24 May 2014.
