Rudolf Bott – Enduro /
Villa Stuck

In 2018, the Museum Villa Stuck presented a comprehensive retrospective with works by the goldsmith and silversmith Rudolf Bott. The book accompanying the exhibition is a 672-page monumental work. Far from a usual catalog with colorful illustrations, it is "thought in black and white" like the entire exhibition. With a 340-page photo report by Jörg Koopmann and Lene Harbo Pedersen, who photographed the objects across Europe at the lenders and in Bott's studio.

Fixing Shadows
Memorial culture in Hiroshima. The starting point of this photographic strollology is an almost invisible, surprisingly discreet cenotaph, which marks the hypo-center of the devastating atomic explosion of Little Boy, which changed the world on August 6, 1945 just 200 meters above this point. Fixing Shadows is a series that follows symbols and terms to historical traces, observes consternation and tourist self-assurance and describes the inbetween. A meander on an island of memory, in the middle of this city, whose heart beats between trauma and blunt economic functioning.
