[Translate to English:] © Sibylle Fendt/OSTKREUZ

Throughhout their common life they had traveled Europe with a caravan. In the summer of 2008 Lothar Gärtner decided to dare a last great journey with his wife Elke. Two years earlier, Elke had come down with Alzheimer's disease.
Sibylle Fendt photographed Lothar and Elke, first in their home before she accompanied the couple on their last trip from Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to St. Petersburg. In restrained yet intimate photographs Sibylle Fendt describes the story of love, drifting apart and coming back together and of disappearance.

"Photography, so it would seem, has at last arrived in the free arts." This observation was the starting point for a large exhibition that the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf put together with advisors such as Andreas Gursky, F.C. Gundlach and Klaus Biesenbach.
The impacts of the digital revolution, a shift in focus from reportage photography to explicitly artistic photography, an orientation towards new forms of presentation - the exhibition makers discern important changes in photo art. They selected 40 artists who are setting the trend for the development of photography, including OSTKREUZ member Pepa Hristova.

Maurice Weiss & Tobias Kruse · Exhibition in Berlin

s it at all possible to capture the magic of a forest with something so technical as the photographic camera? What do photographers encounter when they walk into a forest that is symbolically charged. Or do artists think of something else than an accumulation of trees when they think of a forest? In the exhibition "Wald" 84 photographers deal with these questions, among them OSTKREUZ photographers Maurice Weiss and Tobias Kruse. „Wald“

Ute & Werner Mahler · Exhibition in Berlin

The Berlin based gallery Dittrich & Schlechtriem shows the „Mona Lisas of the suburbs“ by Werner and Ute Mahler. We invite you to the opening on friday. In their work „Mona Lisas of the suburbs“ Werner and Ute Mahler deal with the "in between", on a temporal as well as on a spatial level. They show girls in Europe's suburbs, who are in a state of transition: between city and countryside, between being a child and being a woman. After forty years of marriage and individual careers in photography this is their first collaborative project. The book accompanying the exhibition has recently been published by Meier and Mueller with a print run limited to 500 copies. In addition, a limited edition box with a gelatine print and a print edition with an inkjet print are available. „Mona Lisas of the suburbs“
