The exhibition Time Present with works from the Deutsche Bank Collection at the PalaisPopulaire, is devoted to international photography from the 1970s to the present. The show examines how artists deal with time and the basic questions of photography: What different levels of reality and time does a photograph capture? Does it actually depict a certain moment? Is what is seen in a photograph present or past, reality or imagination? Time Present documents how photography has expanded as a critical medium since the 1960s in conjunction with performance, film, conceptual art, media theory, and politics. At the same time, there are repeated references to painting and art history. The link between time and contemporary events provides the framework for examining the history of the Deutsche Bank Collection from various perspectives.
Deutsche Bank Collection LIVE – Meet Adrian Paci
14 Oct
In his works, Adrian Paci investigates migration, the consequences of globalization, and the transformation of cultural identities. This is also the case in his photo series Back Home, which is currently on view in the Time Present exhibition. In the series, the artist portrays families who emigrated from his home country Albania and in doing so deconstructs the meaning of the term “to be at home.” Britta Färber talks with Paci about his artistic practice.
This event will take place online. If you are interested, you can register for the Zoom Webinar. If you do not wish to participate in the discussion directly, you can follow the event live on PalaisPopulaire's website or on Facebook, or watch it at a later date.
