Rolf Sachsse on Mona Breede’s exhibition “People and Spaces”: “With this, Mona Breede demonstrates to us once again what her art is about: she shows images that are obviously based on photographic works. Thus, the viewer hast the expectation that what he sees is real. And so it is. Once the photographic production has experienced extensions on all levels through different techniques, a certain amount of trust in the final product is lost. So it becomes ‘it could have been so.’ However, when this assumption becomes personal, and the image is only credible thanks to the name of the artist who has carried out these acts for a good reason and with the goal of achieving a specific depiction, a careful look, committed observation, and a composed dialogue will suffice."
