Nationalgalerie in the Hamburger Bahnhof Presents Philipp Lachenmann Some Scenic Views

The Nationalgalerie in the Hamburger Bahnhof presents SOME SCENIC VIEWS on view until February 6, 2011.

The show comprises eight works by Philipp Lachenmann. The works, from the areas of video, film, photography, sculpture and sound, perfectly demonstrate Lachenmann’s exploration of the connections between the moving and static image and the role they have on the workings of collective memory, as well as his structural treatment of cinematic and photographic space. The ‘scenic’ in the exhibition’s title also evokes the idea of ‘scenery’ and ‘mise en scene’ in artificially created and staged productions and thus serves as an indication of the terrain on which the works in the exhibition are played out.

Philipp Lachenmann, “Scenic Review IV,” 1997/2002

Philipp Lachenmann, born in 1963, studied art history, philosophy and film. He works primarily in Cologne, Paris and Los Angeles.

The exhibition is accompanied by an artist’s book (including text passages by Russell Ferguson), available from Christoph Keller Editions / JRPIRingier Verlag, Zurich/
