New German Photography 2021/2022/2023


PHOXXI 1 July — 24 September 2023

Double Feature: Two years will be presented in this year's exhibition of GUTE AUSSICHTEN - JUNGE DEUTSCHE FOTOGRAFIE at PHOXXI, the temporary House of Photography of the Deichtorhallen Hamburg from July 1 - September 17, 2023. Works with a strong content by 14 winners of the renowned prize for young photographers open up thematically broad fields and show the entire spectrum of contemporary photography, from reportage to art installations.

The award winners of the 18th gute aussichten class of 2021/2022 move in their works along a timeline that embraces the present, the past and the future in equal measure. Their topics range from children growing up in precarious conditions (Tamara Eckhardt) and young people practicing and playing war (Natalia Kepesz), to threats and foreignness in their own homeland (Vanessa A. Opoku), the pitfalls of foreign cultures (Zoyeon), the (un)culture of model house parks in Germany (Fiona Körner), to 18 neatly sequenced chapters of photography (Maximilian Gessler), image testimonies through the marriage of analog and digital techniques (Alexander Kadow), and the taming of the viral as well as volatile language of Internet memes by means of "Trojan horses" (Max Dauven).

The thematic fields will be represented by the 19. gute aussichten volume 2022/2023: The arc spans from the photographic exploration of our natural environment (Jette Held), to the state and perception of a young generation in digital space (Charlotte Helwig), to the exploration of one's own ambivalent identity (Luzi), also in the field of tension of the family (Hyejeong Yoo), to the outwitting of the ubiquitous facial recognition (Allegra Kortlang) and the investigative approach of revealing political intrigues of a European constitutional state (Agata Szymanska-Medina).
