PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Stillleben BRD

Christian Werner
The photographer Christian Werner has long been interested in the history of the old Federal Republic of Germany, “this country that no longer exists, but has left its mark on us all.” His latest object of study is the house of a deceased eighty-year-old. Through his camera he approaches the individual, yet collective memory of a familiar type of interior from a typically provincial, post-war life in West Germany. The melancholy, beautiful series comprises around one hundred photographs stamped with Werner’s inimitable, clear gaze, and is presented in a catalogue and exhibition at the Kunstpalais. Authors from various disciplines supplement the photographs with textual miniatures.
