Sonya Schönberger: Den Trümmern zum Trotze – Katharina Maria Raab

Den Trümmern zum Trotze

Opening: 8.9.2017 — 18:00
Dates: 9.9.—28.10.2017
Location: Keithstraße 5, 10787 Berlin, Germany

This exhibition combines two groups of work: “Den Trümmern zum Trotze”, a series of photos about Berlin’s artificial hills of rubble which have been taken since 2012, and a project that was created during the artist's stay in Israel entitled: “A Bengali Ficus, a German Emperor and an Ardent Zionist Encounter a Poor Photographer”. As is the case with the artist’s earlier works, the focus of both groups of work is on searching for traces of history at the respective sites. Sonya Schönberger’s works are built on academic research and bring the seemingly secondary and lost into the foreground while questioning historical events and rewriting history based on the fragments. Sonya Schönberger is interested in the tension between history and stories. She studied ethnology and experimental media design and her work often moves between visual and performing art, deploying the widest range of media. As was the case with earlier groups of work, in this exhibition Sonya Schönberger also decided to use the Agfa box camera to take pictures.
