Qipao Design Competition in Anren, Chengdu

I am happy to take part at the panel discussion at the Qipao Design Competition which takes place December 15 -16 in Anren, Chengdu, China. Artists from the countries along the Silk Road will explore the original beauty in the finery culture of the East, and the elegant Eastern life style with cultural confidence, in order to reinterpret the modern Chinoiserie with a crossover perspective. I am looking forward to this short but intensive trip and will surely discover new inspiration for my work.

Portrait series on show in Beijing until December 23

Since its invention in the early 19th century, one of the primary focuses of photography has been the objective documentation of the visible world through the reproduction of this in the form of images ‘drawn with light’. Over the decades, a kind of battle arose between the new medium of photography and the time-honoured medium of painting. Today, however, art critics and museum professionals accept and even embrace photography as an artistic medium on equal footing with painting and sculpture. The exhibition Beyond the Sphere of Reproduction features a juxtaposition of six Chinese and six German photographers, who of whom question the history and role of photography in many different ways.
