Forum 044, the Munich Stadtmuseum’s exhibition format for young photography, is presenting Liste: Neues Wasser, a body of work by Jenny Schäfer, from December 8, 2017 to February 4, 2018.
The work represents an artistic research into the ambivalence of the element water. How do we perceive water? How is water marketed? What dreams are associated with this element?
Over a period of two years, Schäfer focussed on the phenomenon water. The outcome is a series of photographs, drawings and objects, looking at the correlations between the aesthetics of water within a capitalist system, and its inherent romanticism, power and fascination. In the process, the artist removes her photographic motifs from their original, narrative context, and reorders them within a framework that she defines.
