Wim Wenders Wim Wenders. Instant Stories at C|O Berlin presents a selection from the late 1960s to the early 1980s, when Polaroids were a visual notebook, a field of experimentation, and a photographic road movie. The resulting collection of pictures includes thousands of unique, personal shots of his film sets and travels through Europe, the United States, and many other places around the globe. They show Wenders in his personal surroundings and portraits of celebrities and friends including Annie Leibovitz, Robby Müller, Dennis Hopper, and Peter Handke. The exhibition will be making its first and only stop in Germany at C|O Berlin. Along with Wenders’ photographs, the exhibition includes excerpts from films in which Wenders used the medium of instant photography as part of the film narrative.

diter roth British artist Tania Kovats makes drawings, sculpture, installations and large-scale time-based projects exploring our experience and understanding of landscape. She is best known for Tree (2009), a permanent installation for the Natural History Museum in London; and Rivers, an outdoor sculpture in the landscape of Jupiter Artland outside Edinburgh. This new exhibition focuses on her fascination with the sea. INFO - Airyka Rockefeller Airyka Rockefeller is from a small island in the Pacific Northwest. She graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in New York with a BA in cultural studies and photography, and received her MFA from California College of the Arts in 2005. Rockefeller's art works turn attention to repurposed landscapes, worldly metamorphosis, and the paradigms between the symbolic and factual value of things and places. Long fascinated by the popular tendency to monumentalize particular landscapes, architectures or objects, while determining others as insignificant, her work investigates the overlooked and vestigial on an intimate scale. Her ongoing series of self-portraits, Between Or Before, was recently included in Auto Focus: The Self-Portrait in Contemporary Art, a publication by Susan Bright, and a photograph from the same project is featured on the cover of Photo World magazine from China for their March 2014 issue.

E.J. BELLOCQ: "'Bellocq Epoque' - Nan Goldin on Photographer E.J. Bellocq" (1997) By Nan Goldin, Originally Published in ArtForum, May, 1997 Late one Berlin night in 1991, a famous German fashion photographer invited me and two friends to join him for a trip to Bel Ami, his favorite brothel in the Grunewald. The presence of a woman as a customer created a ripple of surprise, but the photographer, being a regular and popular visitor, put them at ease.

Shizuka Yokomizo "Dear Strangers" Later last Friday night, after Katy mentioned this artist in class, I went through a library book I had checked out Thursday evening entitled Strangers: The First ICP Triennial of Photography and Video and actually found the photographer Katy had been speaking about, Shizuka Yokomizo. I will try and type up the article from the book and put it here. Article I found online: ArtForum, April, 2001 by Barry Schwabsky "Dear Stranger": On its own, the phrase that titles Shizuka Yokomizo's 1998-2000 series of photographic portraits is heavy with paradox. Jacques Derrida Jacques Derrida (/ʒɑːk ˈdɛrɨdə/; French: [ʒak dɛʁida]; born Jackie Élie Derrida;[1] July 15, 1930 – October 9, 2004) was a French philosopher, born in French Algeria. Derrida is best known for developing a form of semiotic analysis known as deconstruction. He is one of the major figures associated with post-structuralism and postmodern philosophy.[3][4][5] During his career Derrida published more than 40 books, together with hundreds of essays and public presentations. He had a significant influence upon the humanities and social sciences, including—in addition to philosophy and literature—law[6][7][8] anthropology,[9] historiography,[10] linguistics,[11] sociolinguistics,[12] psychoanalysis, political theory, feminism, and queer studies.
