28 January – 30 March, 2012

A mysterious and ominous atmosphere permeates the work of Kathrin Ahlt. Amidst romantic imagery a powerful uncanny emerges. Her artistic research into the boundary between the familiar and the strange leads to travels across the world, combining in the show called »Rusken« empty landscapes shot in Sweden with the lonely cityscapes of Moscow. Besides melancholy and longing, nature’s play of colors is also shown in the facades of Moscow’s buildings and typical of the whole exhibition. Kathrin Ahlt explores visual clichés and prototypical images, memories and imaginations, that everyone carries with them. In this way it investigates our overcrowded image banks, full of media imagery.
