A young woman lying still and alone on a deserted sunny beach, a floral happy cow in the garden in Bavaria, an underground cell complex which is linked with the 44-year history of political persecution in the former the German Democratic Republic, which also served as prison in Germany for detention and psychological torture of political prisoners, the face of a contemporary witness, futuristic cityscapes with skytrains strangling spaces, an ensemble of portraits of youngsters in Berlin in a summer day by the lake, images of the fading homeland, a glimpse of human beings among nature, a group of artsy immigrants, a nightmare, the beauty of scars on women bodies. - Photos and graphics like these make the exhibition set up by 14 students from Berlin – they want to meet students and photographers from Hanoi.
They are photography and design students, with various backgrounds, such as pool of youth and subculture and the immensely diverse Berlin art scene. The audience will feel the trembles, anxieties but at the same time endless curiosities, brave, joys and hopes of a young generation of artists and designers from Germany and nine other countries.
The group is led by Walter Bergmoser (* 1959 Augsburg, Bavaria) and Andrej Glusgold (*1968, Chishinau, Moldova). Botch teach Photography (MA) at the University of Applied Sciences Europe (former: BTK, Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule) in Berlin. This study program qualifies a new generation of photographers and communication designers for their professional challenges of the 21st century.
The 14 students have prepared their exhibition as an invitation to meet students from other universities. During their ten-day-stay in Hanoi they works as photographer and designers for and with VN express.
