until 25.07 | #0080ARTatBerlin | Robert Morat shows the exhibiton “Hesitating Beauty” with works by the artist Joshua Lutz from 13th June to 25th July 2015.
As a child American photographer Joshua Lutz watched his mother unscrew the phone, looking for hidden recording bugs or search for patterns in license-plate numbers. His series “Hesitating Beauty” is a reflection on the relationship to his mother’s mental illness, his dealing with the fear of being affected by schizophrenia and depression himself and on the history of his family. In his project, Lutz fundametally reflects on the narrative possibilities of photograhy, informing his own photographs by photographs from the family archives, letters and documents.
The book, published by Schilt Publishing, received rave reviews and the series has been exhibited internationally. It is his second monograph after publishing „Meadowlands“ in 2008. Joshua Lutz (born 1975) lives and works in New York and teaches at Beard College, the ICP, and Pratt Institute.
