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 Martin Liebscher

Here the artist makes the music: Martin Liebscher photographed himself 6,000 times in different poses at the Berliner Philharmonie concert hall. This large-format photograph from his series Family Photos, currently on view in the Time Present show, humorously investigates the coordinates of identity, time, and space, as well as the ideal of the artist genius. Friedhelm Hütte talks with the Berlin-based photographer about his artistic practice.
