How intensively do photographers examine their motifs? How much attention to they pay to individuals who view their pictures? The photographer Thomas Bergner dedicates himself to this question.

Cornelia Schleime

A Blink of an Eye
In 2016, Cornelia Schleime (*1953) received the Hannah-Höch-Preis of the State of Berlin for her life’s work, connected with a retrospective at the Berlinische Galerie. The exhibition and catalogue provide insights into her work from the nineteen-eighties until today. During her studies in Dresden, the artist was part of a young art scene that formed as a countermovement to the official art doctrine of East Germany. After several applications to emigrate, the artist moved from East to West Berlin in 1984. She became known in the nineteen-nineties with large-format paintings, portraits, and figure paintings, which she continuously develops further until today, as well as with drawings and watercolors.
