Autumn/Winter 2020/21

ZusammenlebenAusstellung Zusammenleben Joachim Brohm - Ute Mahler - John Myers 13.09.2020 - 03.01.2021

On view now until early 2021: my series ‚Ruhr‘ and ‚Paradis‘ from the 1980s at Kunsthalle Darmstadt  I am happy to be part of the show ‚Zusammenleben’ ('Living Together'), curated by Ralph Goertz, in company of the legendary Ute Mahler and the unique John Myers!

After this I will pause exhibitions and take a long look at my work of the last few years, whatever will come out of it ;)

Cahier Box Bauhaus Museum Dessau

Cahier 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 + Supplement

The complete 10 issues (2017-2019) of the series Cahier Bauhaus Museum Dessau -each in a different look and design- document the making of the new museum that has been inaugurated with great public interest in September 2019. Each of the Cahiers is dedicated to a specific topic that is related to the construction process, as the site, the fundament, the protocols, the tender plan, the Bauhaus archive in storage, the façade, the construction workers, the details, the exhibition display and the involved companies and suppliers. In this unprecedented editorial project that ran over more than two years, Architecture became disseminated in an unprecedented and novel, if not artistic fashion. 

Cahier Bauhaus Museum Dessau is an initiative by Addenda Architects with photographers Joachim Brohm & Valentina Seidel, editor Moritz Küng and graphic designers ODD - Oficina de disseny  supported by Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and published in collaboration with Koenig Books, London.

Two Rivers. Joachim Brohm / Alec Soth

Acompanying the exhibition 'Two Rivers' at NRW-Forum Düsseldorf (March 29 - July 07), this catalogue presents Joachim Brohm’s photo series ‘Ruhr '(1980 to 1983) alongside ‘Sleeping by the Mississippi' (2000 to 2004) by Alec Soth. 

 Other groups of work on view in the show and catalogue, such as ‘Ohio’, ‘Culatra’ and excerpts of Brohm's new project ‘Dessau Files’, as well as ‘Songbook‘ and ‘Niagara’ by Alec Soth allow for a broader view of the oeuvres of the two photographers. - Also featured in the book is Brohm’s portrait series ‘Flash Ohio’ which is being published for the first time exactly 35 years after its creation and which takes up a special place in his oevre.
