Conversation with the Artist Frédéric Brenner

Program surrounding the exhibition “This Place” (in German)

The inside-out@thisplace series explores the process of creating a collective photography exhibition and presents the perspectives of the photographers involved. It is about the view from outside and inside, about narratives, about familiar pictorial worlds and the courage to question them.

Frédéric Brenner’s first photographic project portrayed the Jewish Orthodox quarter of Mea Shearim in Jerusalem as early as 1978 and, from that time onwards for over 25 years, Jewish life in the diaspora in 40 countries. In his photographic contribution to the exhibition This Place, he explores Israel as a place of radical otherness, where longing, belonging, and exclusion are all part of people’s everyday lives.
