Im Moment. Photography from Saxony and Lusatia

More than half of the artistic positions come from the collection of the Kunstfonds, which has been aquired since 1992 through purchases made in support of artists, which today are made possible by the cultural foundation Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen. Furthermore, photographic holdings of the Kulturhistorisches Museum, loans from the Deutsche Fotothek Dresden and the Stadtmuseum Bautzen as well as private collections will be on show. Some of the series will be publically exhibited for the first time.

The exhibition will also occasion the publication of an extensively illustrated catalogue: Im Moment. Fotografie aus Sachsen und der Lausitz, with an introductory essay by Silke Wagler and Kai Wenzel, 240 pages, 175 plates, ISBN 978-3-95498-348-3.

The following artists will be exhibited:

Ralf Anders, Jürgen Bergbauer, Christian Borchert, Thomas Florschuetz, Falk Haberkorn, Klaus Hähner-Springmühl, Rudolf Hartmetz, Margret Hoppe, Eduard Klein, Jens Klein, Franziska Klose, Bertram Kober, Jürgen Matschie, Maix Mayer, Florian Merkel, Yana Milev, Marcel Noack, Daniel Poller, Günther Rapp, Olaf Rauh, Martin Reich, Evelyn Richter, Matthias Rietschel, Benjamin Rinner, Götz Schlötke, Bernd Schnabel, Stefan Schröder, Grit Schwerdtfeger, Valentina Seidel, Andrzej Steinbach, Thomas Steinert, Anett Stuth, Albrecht Tübke, Matthias Weber, Karen Weinert/Thomas Bachler, Artur Zalewski as well as the children and youth photography group "aktion."

With this project the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden and the Kulturhistorisches Museum Görlitz are continuing their cooperation of many years. Most recently, the exhibition by the Kunstfonds Ortsbestimmung. Zeitgenössische Kunst aus Sachsen in 2013-2014 occasioned the opening of a new exhibition space on the third floor of the Kaisertrutz.
