An­dreas Mühe holds first solo ex­hi­bi­tion at Red Brick Art Mu­seum

Global Times - - Life -

Through the lens of Ger­man pho­tog­ra­pher An­dreas Mühe, the world seems so peace­ful that a wave of calm flows through you upon view­ing them. An­dreas Mühe: Pho­tog­ra­phy, a new ex­hi­bi­tion at the Red Brick Art Mu­seum in Bei­jing, fea­tures more than 60 such works shot by this artist over the past 15 years.

His por­traits in­clude pho­tos of Hel­mut Kohl, the for­mer chan­cel­lor of Ger­many, stand­ing in front of the Bran­den­burg Gate at sun­set; An­gela Merkel, chan­cel­lor of Ger­many, gaz­ing at a land­scape; Friede Springer, a fa­mous Ger­man pub­lisher, ob­serv­ing the night sky; and Ger­hard Richter, a well­known Ger­man artist, tak­ing a stroll be­side some paint­ings.

Ac­cord­ing to Walter Smer­ling, pres­i­dent of the Bonn Foun­da­tion for Art and Cul­ture, “The ex­plo­ration of at­mos­phere and am­bi­ence, and his en­coun­ters with lead­ing per­son­al­i­ties and con­tem­po­rary his­tory are ex­pressed vis­ually in hy­per­bolic form in his pow­er­ful evoca­tive images.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion is sched­uled to end on Oc­to­ber 21.
