good prospects

21.01.2013 –

Monika Czosnowska, Ingo Mittelstaedt, Markus Uhr: Three former winners of the ‘good prospects’ award present their recent works within an interactive laboratory for individual experiences of the visitors.


This is the second time that Marta Herford has addressed young German photography in connection with the ‘gute aussichten’ (‘good proscpects’) awards. Whereas photographs by the 2012/2013 prize-winners moved on to Haus der Photographie in the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg on 21 January, for ‘zoom’ three internationally successful winners of the competition are occupying exhibition rooms at Marta for another four weeks.

‘zoom’ focuses on the different photographic strategies of Monika Czosnowska, Ingo Mittelstaedt and Markus Uhr. Moreover, for this exhibition the museum is embarking on an untried format. Visitors enter a hands-on laboratory in which they can actively experience key questions of the photographic works and their presentation. For example, they are able to explore different forms of self-portraits for themselves, discover interactions between light and shadow, and experiment with collages.

This exhibition project has been organized in collaboration with the Education Department.
