Andrea Wilmsen: B.ODE
The Berlin-based photographer challenges viewers with her images of absolutely intimate yet very public spaces in museums. For her current project she photographed the exhibition rooms of the Bode-Museum on the Museum Island in Berlin from constantly new perspectives, although her goal was not to reproduce art. On the contrary, as an experiment in exploring our basic perception of spaces, she focuses on the immediate surroundings of sculptures and paintings, whose edges sometimes extend into the images.
