In 2002 and 2003, Annette Kisling spent a year in Rotterdam as an artist-in-residence. She came across a richly varied and vibrant city. During her work period, several photo series were created that portray different areas within Rotterdam.
Years later, in 2017, Annette Kisling returns to Rotterdam. The city has changed a lot in the meantime. The diversity has remained but exclusivity has been added. Rotterdam cherishes its heterogeneous structure, but at the same time competition, densification and upgrading determine the cityscape. Anno 2017 Annette Kisling finds a city that is largely characterized by economization. In April, May and August, for example, 2017 creates a large series of works, with an open beginning and end, which reflects the complex stratification of the city from the perspective of the photographer.
On November 10, the exhibition is open as part of the Stadmakerscongres from 10 to 17 hours.
Annette Kisling is a photographer and lives in Berlin and Leipzig. After her education at the Art Academy in Kassel, Offenbach and Hamburg, she spent a long time in Zurich, Rotterdam, Paris, Marfa (Texas), Venedig and Bangalore (India). In photo series she describes her experiences with the architecture that surrounds her. Her focus is, among other things, on the modernist architecture of the 20 century. Since 2009, Annette Kisling has been a professor of photography at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig.
