Portraits of Growing Older
Gabrielle Conrath-Scholl & Gabriele Spindler
Photography and film are among the few artistic mediums that can openly and poignantly record the process of aging. In works such as the systematic documentation of the Brown sisters by Nicholas Nixon or Roni Horn’s installation of random portraits of herself taken over her entire life by friends and family but never before seen by the artist, the camera allows us to intimately experience the ever-changing self. In this deeply moving exhibition catalog, curators Gabrielle Conrath-Scholl and Gabriele Spindler have selected specific works that pose questions about life choices, destiny and the influences that affect the evolution of the physical image. Featured artists, Richard Avedon, Christian Borchert, Rineke Dijkstra, Seiichi Furuya, Stefanie Grebe, Roni Horn, Wilma Hurskainen, Anna Jermolaewa, Friedl Kubelka, Michael Mauracher, Nicholas Nixon, Thomas Struth and more.
