Frischzelle_24: Ann-Kathrin Müller
With a sober gaze and a narrative instinct, Ann-Kathrin Müller (b. 1988 in Nürtingen) gives shape to the black-and-white photographs she shoots using an analog camera. She created her most recent series of works, "Scenes in the Open Air" (2017)—on view for the first time at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart—on remote, fog-covered fields near Vesuvius, on the Bay of Naples. In them, the artist spans a trajectory from the documentary photography of the twentieth century to the filmic visual strategies found in contemporary art. In doing so, she continues the conceptual approach she pursued in such early works as "Vantage Point" (2015) and "The Exposition" (2015/16), which stood in dialogue with one another in the exhibition.
