Franziska Stünkel – »COEXIST Part 5 America«

Franziska Stünkel – »COEXIST Part 5 America«

The fifth edition of the long-term »COEXIST« project led the renowned photographer and film director Franziska Stünkel to North America where she explored human co-existences in American cities on the East and West Coast. The result was not only extraordinary new photographs but also an accompanying catalogue published by Kehrer Verlag that offers comprehensive insights into the vast pictorial ensemble of the COEXIST series and combines the question concerning co-existences in our society with interesting essays from the fields of science and culture. In the COEXIST series that has been growing steadily over the past ten years, Franziska Stünkel photographs scenes from everyday life on reflecting surfaces that interfere into seemingly infinite levels. The exciting superimpositions she captures with her camera can be discovered in the start-of-the-year exhibition in Robert Drees’s Gallery Loft until mid March.
