Deutsche Bank Collection LIVE – Meet the Artist
Andreas Mühe
September 10, 2020, 6 pm

 “Nobody undermines the collective German pictorial memory as adroitly as the art photographer Andreas Mühe,” wrote Beate Scheder in an article in Die Welt newspaper the occasion of Mühe’s exhibition at König Galerie. His work invariably focuses on subjects from twentieth-century German history as well as the Berlin artist’s family history. The latter is shown in the Time Present exhibition in the work Es geht nicht weiter – Februar 2017, in which Mühe reconstructs the painful moment when he received the news of his father’s imminent death. The artist talks with Friedhelm Hütte, the director of Deutsche Bank’s art department, about his methods and artistic stances.

Axel Hütte
September 11, 2020, 6 pm

In 1976, Axel Hütte attended the first, now legendary, photography class of Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, along with Andreas Gursky, Candida Höfer, and Thomas Ruff. The Time Present exhibition shows Hütte’s photograph Vescona II, which explores the heart of Tuscany, an idealized landscape. But this is not just another clichéd image of Italy: For Hütte, photography is a medium that reflects not only the landscape but the image itself and the role of the viewer. “I empty my pictures as much as possible,” says the artist, “so that the viewers can find themselves in them. So they can search for themselves in them.” Friedhelm Hütte talks about the working method and artistic practice with the photographer.

Cao Fei
September, 11, 2020, 11 am

Whose Utopia? is the title of Cao Fei’s video work which is on view during Berlin Art Week in the Atelier of the PalaisPopulaire. The Time Present exhibitions shows the stills that emerged from this six-month project. The Chinese artist went to a light bulb factory in the Pearl River Delta and interviewed people who worked for a large corporation. She examined  their lives, thoughts, and above all their dreams—an approach that is diametrically opposed to the interests of a multinational manufacturer focused on efficiency and maximizing profit. As in the Cao Fei’s oeuvre as a whole, this work also explores the contrast between global consumer culture and individual longing, between tradition and faith. She discusses these themes with Britta Färber, Chief Curator of the Deutsche Bank Collection.

Tokihiro Sato
October 2, 2020 

Tokihiro Sato “paints” with light, moving like a performer in front of the camera. In his works, the moment of time actually becomes visible and leaves traces in diverse settings. Sato’s black-and-white photographs thus unfold a poetic effect and at the same time question the determinants of the medium itself. Friedhelm Hütte talks with the photographer, who lives in Japan, about his artistic practice.

Adrian Paci

In his works, Adrian Paci investigates migration, the consequences of globalization, and the transformation of cultural identities. This is also the case in his photo series Back Home, which is currently on view in the Time Present exhibition. In the series, the artist portrays families who emigrated from his home country Albania and in doing so deconstructs the meaning of the term “to be at home.” Britta Färber, Chief Curator of the Deutsche Bank Collection, talks with Paci about his artistic practice.

Andrea Galvani
October 21, 2020, 7 pm

“The only way to extend a limit is to cross it,” says Andrea Galvani. The utopia of a world without borders inspires the work of the Italian artist, who divides his time between the USA and Mexico. Time Present includes his work Llevando una pepita de oro a la velocidad del sonido #6, in which a plane breaks the sound barrier and thus also a border. Britta Färber, Chief Curator of the Deutsche Bank Collection, talks with Galvani about his artistic practice.

This large-format photograph from his series Family Photos, currently on view in the Time Present show, humorously investigates the coordinates of identity, time, and space, as well as the ideal of the artist genius.
