until 05.09. | #0111ARTatBerlin | Between 4th July and 5th September 2015 Gallery Albrecht shows the exhibition ‘B/W Photographs from the 1960s till today’ by the three artists Thomas Lüttge, Gabor Kerekes and Michael Kenna.
In everyday life, black-and-white is an exception. Normally, we are surrounded by colours, we express emotions through colours, we approach colours, we are attracted or repelled by colours, colours call and entice us, they draw our attention. Black and white is life stripped of colour.
It is easy to understand that after the invention of colour photography Thomas Lüttge (born in 1941) took black-and-white photographs in the 1960s, in the era of minimal art, and that in the 1970s the photographer Gabor Kerekes (1945 – 2014) took b/w photographs in Cold War Hungary, we can comprehend that. And today?
Michael Kenna, born in 1953, takes only b/w photographs. What does b/w photography have to offer today?
