Refusal of Reality - Subjective Positions
Thanh Long, Regenblume, aus: Blumenbilder, 2003/2006.

LEIPZIG, GERMANY.- Baumwollspinnerei Leipzig presents Refusal of Reality - Subjective positions in contemporary photography, on view through October 8, 2006. The fourth exhibition in this series displays again recent works contextual to the given philosophy of the artists network and will be shown only for two weeks.

Although all members work in different ways and their artwork finds different expressions - from light painting and chemigrams to subjective photographic reportage - they all follow the idea of "Subjective Photography".

By dealing with the radical positions of the vanguard art of the twenties and the "Subjective Photography" of the fifties and sixties until today they expand the photographic thinking and formulate a personal point of view, which shows the relationship between the photographer and the world.

Despite different production methods and visual strategies the works are united by the common element of the subjective view of reality. The artists adopt a contraposition to a documentary and realistic photography and find a more metaphoric, lyric, narrative and subjective approach.

Although a number of individual artists work in a subjective context, for the first time a group has formed, which will bring its positions forward in the following three years in Germany and abroad.
