From 24 January to 15 March 2015, the Kunstmuseum Dieselkraftwerk in Cottbus, Germany, presents the exhibition Am Ende der Zeit (At the End of Time) with photographs by Thomas Kläber. Since the beginning of his artistic career, the German photographer has been drawn to the depiction of people – historically one the most central themes of photography. Kläber's genuine interest in his fellow humans is once again reflected in his sensitive photo essay At the End of Time, which revolves around Cottbus resident Annemarie Jatzlauk.
The ordinary, the extraordinary and the unique
Annemarie Jatzlauk spent almost six decades behind the counter of her small chemist's shop, where time seemed to have stood still. Thomas Kläber accompanied her for more than seven years until her death in 2013. In this time he endeavoured to understand and illustrate the uniqueness of her personality. Participating in her everyday routines, he captured the ordinary moments of her life in their quiet repetition – laying them out, image by image, for our eyes. The exhibition is accompanied by an 80-page book publication with texts by Matthias Körner and Carmen Schliebe.
