Astrid Proll. Pictures on the Run

EXILE is pleased to invite you to the opening of the solo exhibition Pictures on the Run at the gallery’s Erfurt location. The exhibition will present Astrid Proll’s widely-known photographs taken in November 1969 in Paris. Accompanied by a text from Alexandra Symons-Sutcliffe the genealogy of these iconic photographs is traced past their socio-political relevance into youth culture, vernacular snapshot photography and selfie culture. The exhibition in Erfurt will present a set of 13 photographs printed in 2008 for the exhibition MAN SON at Hamburger Kunsthalle together with various research material. The unique, one of a kind silver-gelatin vintage press prints from the archive of Der Stern Magazine will be on view at this year's Art Cologne, Sector Collaborations, together with works from the same period by artists Sine Hansen (1942 – 2009) and Jobst Meyer (1940-2017). Astrid Proll has previously screened her film Der Zug aus Leipzig, 1988 at EXILE Berlin in 2009.
