To mark the launch of her new book published by DISTANZ Verlag, Galerie Springer Berlin is for the ﬁrst time showcasing the latest works from Anna Lehmann–Brauns in a separate exhibition.
"Looking at these photos, everyone is for themselves. They have a sort of magic in the way they cross over from the everyday to the mysterious. Moments of uneventfulness and idleness are shown, which impart something of a bias from the viewer’s own perspective and from the solitude in the subjective.” This is how Dr. Sabine Ziegenrücker describes the work of Anna Lehmann–Brauns in her latest monograph. A further text from Dr. Matthias Harder, Curator of the Helmut Newton Foundation Berlin, along with an in-depth interview between him and the artist complete the publication.
On Friday, 9 October 2015 at 7pm, Galerie Springer Berlin invites you to a talk with artist Anna Lehmann–Brauns and Dr. Matthias Harder. To mark this occasion, ANNA LEHMANN–BRAUNS‘ book, which is soon to be published by BRAUNS‘ book, which is soon to be published by DISTANZ Verlag, will be making its ﬁrst public appearance.
About Anna Lehmann-Brauns: She was born 1968, lives and works in Berlin. Anna Lehmann-Brauns studied art photography at the Hochschule für Graﬁk und Buchkunst in Leipzig (Masterclass Joachim Brohm).rnHer work focusses on deserted spaces, stages, bars, cinemas, etc. She generally seeks out these spaces, but sometimes creates these herself in the form of doll’s house models. Light inﬂuenced environments are signiﬁcant for her work; her pictures are always devoid of humans but have a strongly emotional quailty.
She has won multiple awards and has exhibited at numerous national and international shows, including Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Haus am Lützowplatz, Museum Kunst der Westküste, Kunsthalle Frisch, Stadthaus Ulm, Oberösterreichisches Landesmuseum, New York Photo Festival, Frauenmuseum Bonn, Museum für angewandte Kunst Gera. She has received several scholarships from Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung, DAAD Travel Grant, Hospiz Art Prize, Brita Kunst Prize, and the Kodak Sponsorship Award, a residency fellowship at Schloß Balmoral in 2015.
