until 28.08. | #0608ARTatBerlin | Haus am Waldsee shows from 8th of July 2016 the exhibition CHINESE WHISPERS by the photo artist Ingo Mittelstaedt with the collection Peter Raue.
The Berlin photo artist Ingo Mittelstaedt (b. 1978) works with the extensive collection of the Berlin lawyer and art expert Peter Raue which will be shown to the public for the first time at Haus am Waldsee. Starting with David Hockney’s series ‘Blue Guitar’ (1975) Mittelstaedt addresses the topics of seeing, collecting and reutilising or recycling objects and ideas. In doing so Mittelstaedt treats the collection of artworks as his raw material which he correlates with a selection of his own works from 2007 to 2016.
Like in the children’s game ‘Chinese whispers’ topics and themes are reinterpreted and handed down from one generation to the next and from one artist to another. Mittelstaedt visualizes this network of references with his own works and, among others, with works by Marcel Broodthaers, Hanne Darboven, David Hockney, Rebecca Horn, Eva Kot’átková and Robert Longo.
