Image and Archive. Color-Photographs since 1980
"Joachim Brohm, born in 1955, created the right photographic images at the right time - images that would prove to be a pioneering achievement in the context of a virulent debate over the status of photography in art. His work became a vehicle for an understanding of art since the 1970s that made a young generation of artists connect the visual possibilities of color photography with a newly defined 'everyday cultural landscape'. At the same time, Brohm's constantly elaborated sequences of photographs also show how important the medium and the artist's archive have become as reflectors of day-to-day existence, challenging him to keep developing and reviewing them in the light of changes in the reality of our lives."
