From March 4 to April 17, 2016, the Hamburger Haus der Photographie is presenting the exhibition 'gute aussichten 2015/2016 – junge deutsche Fotografie' (good outlooks 2015/2016 – young German photography). With the motto “Quo vadis, World?” newcomer photographers question our image of the world and take a look behind our daily habits. In this twelfth edition of the 'gute aussichten' projects, the photographers dare to make prognoses, present outlines for the world, and reflect – at times in an amusing manner, at times an analytical one – on our lifestyles.
This led Kjung-Nyu Hyun to spend a year photographing her food. With her visual diary of food pictures, the Art College student from Cologne wants to draw attention to the rituals of a digital society and to provoke thoughts about our consumer behaviour. In contrast, Gregor Schmidt from the College for Technology and Economy in Berlin dedicated his documentation, 'Waiting for Qatar', to the Emir's vision to turn the Emirate into a knowledge-based society by 2030. The projects by the other award-winners Aras Gökten, Lars Hübner, Felix Hüffelmann, Kolja Linowitzki, Jewgeni Roppel, Kamil Sobolewski and Maja Wirkus, were equally fascinating.
