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.

Marlon Wobst


Marlon Wobst’s works celebrate an exciting realism in the midst of a world of body optimization and obsession with beauty: the radical normality of physical interaction—the shyness, awkward positions, desire, humor, and curiosity. When Wobst shows the moment of a sexual encounter, his bodies, however, dissolve into abstract forms. Fleshly heaps encounter fragments of naked bodies, sometimes blown up into miscellaneous parts.

This publication presents a group of ceramic sculptures characterized by a very humorous approach for the first time. The conversation with the artist conducted by Annika Karpwoski offers a felicitous approach to Wobst’s oeuvre. In his essay, the New Zealander Anthony Byrt takes an in-depth look at questions regarding the erotic relationships in the oeuvre in an open and lively manner.
