Bild vom Katalogcover Family Files

Exhibition catalogue

Sixteen artists, sixteen families, sixteen "files". Each file holds a family life in its embrace. An entire universe of intimate family life seen through the eyes of the artist unfolds before the viewer's gaze. This is a visual-anthropological journey into the family, which is our first reference point as human beings in this world. Similar to writers who tell a tale, the artists spread out before us a visual narrative. Human and aesthetic bonds, anecdotes from within family life, events, and relationships: some are in a penetrating documentary style, and other draw on a more fictional representation.
