»Beyond the Ring«
I would like to extend a warm invitation to attend the 5th talk in the fourth series of ‘Beyond the Ring’ by Hahn+Hartung.
‘Beyond the Ring’ is an informal set of artists’ talks/presentations/performances by international artists based in Berlin and visiting artists passing through. ‘Beyond the Ring’ is there to provide the opportunity for people to meet and share their thoughts, ideas and work. If you’re interested in joining in, you will see that there is life Beyond the Ring in Berlin.
For a place, please RSVP Ethna at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jan-Christoph Hartung + Miguel Hahn met during their studies at the University of Darmstadt. Their work deals with themes like leftovers, the lost and the upcoming. In Vietnam they sought out traces of the war that devastated the country 40 years ago. In Indonesia they uncovered the effects of tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanoes. Their new, yet unfinished work, deals with fear in Germany – the fear that moves people to prepare for a life affected by serious crises and catastrophes.
Hahn+Hartung’s work has been published in ZEITmagazin, SZ-Magazin, Le Monde, CNN, Dummy, Vice, Wired and the British Journal of Photography, among others, as well as being exhibited at C/O Berlin and the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. Their project “Texas Saigon,” published in ZEITmagazin, received the Gold LEAD Award for Reportage Photography of the Year.
