DOCKS Collective


22 June 2019 – 14 July 2019

Opening on Friday, 21 June at 8 p.m.

DOCKS, a collective of four young photographers, stands for different and contemporary approaches to documentary photography with humanistic values. The collective was founded in May 2018 when they published a newspaper with works from the last two years. In the Künstlerhaus they show their current long-term projects.

An environmental disaster in Iran, Lake Urmia, serves Maximilian Mann to criticize the waste of resources of human life.

Arne Piepke with Glaube, Sitte, Heimat accompanies shooting clubs through their fest-cycle and creates a fascinating portrait of German tradition.

Ingmar Björn Nolting looks in the middle of Germany behind facades of a skyscraper, where poverty, loneliness and exclusion in the former dream of the 1970s hide.

Fabian Ritter shows with horizone de calor the biggest forest fire in Europe of the last year and using abstract and documentary photography he comes close to the people in a destroyed habitat.
