‘Everything that Hasn’t Happened Yet, is the Future – Unless it’s Happening Right Now’ is the title of a current exhibition at Kunsthalle im Lipsiusbau, Dresden, open until August 29, 2021.
As Angela Merkel completes her last year as Chancellor of Germany, an exhibition at the Kunsthalle im Lipsiusbau (presented by Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden) looks back at her time in office with both real and imagined narratives, captured by Andreas Mühe. In addition to the series ‘A. M. – Eine Deutschlandreise’ (A Trip Through Germany) – an official feature produced for Monopol Magazine in 2013 – the showcase also includes images from a brand-new fictional series, set in the Chancellor’s Bungalow in Bonn.
Comprising around 70 images, the exhibition explores fundamental questions surrounding the credibility of photographs, the power of images, as well as the use of encoded messages and fictional elements within photography. By juxtaposing real commissions with re-enacted scenes that are barely distinguishable from the original, the photographer highlights the orchestrated nature of political imagery.
