Since 1982, Ottmar Hörl has developed photo concepts with a focus on automated picture taking. Cameras were thrown from planes, for instance, were attached to the rims of car tyres, or even shot at to create pictures that capture segments of reality beyond human interference, a reality that is no longer defined as such by the artist's view.
"Time Present" is an exhibition at the PalaisPopulaire in Berlin featuring pieces from the Deutsche Bank Collection that represent a range of international photographic works by different artists, created from the 1970s to the present and focusing on precisely this area where reality and imagination overlap. Four sections subsumed under the topos of "Time" show works dealing with fundamental questions of photography and the way they developed. As one of the major contemporary proponents of this development, Ottmar Hörl has contributed his "Schwäbischer Traum" [Swabian Dream] from 1989.
The exhibition also features MIA, the "Museum Intelligence Assistant", an art chatbot that is app-controlled.
Admission to the exhibition running from 10 May 2020 to 8 February 2021 is free. Please reserve a time slot for your visit using the PalaisPopulaire ticket shop.
