Die Welt nun

In a room there is a small room and in the small room there is an even smaller one. You can look and walk through the walls, or take the almost labyrintic path. Photos hang distributed on paper strips that form the walls, for which there seems to be no outside or inside, but which invite you to take a closer look. The world now. Photos taken by Elena Hofmeister during her one-year stay in China hang in the Galerie Au in Munich. Different worlds that Katharina Stumm brings together sensitively.

The world now. Photos taken by Elena Hofmeister during her one-year stay in China hang in the Galerie Au in Munich. Different worlds that Katharina Stumm brings together sensitively.

In the upper room of the gallery, the fusion of worlds, with an emphasis on the location, autumnal Munich, is somewhat brutal. With alluvial wood and abstracted photos, a morbid aftertaste now follows the world. This sensation is emphasized by the video that is projected onto a curtain made of paper strips in a continuous loop.
