GoSee Tip : art made in Schwäbisch Gmünd - Collier Schorr at 303 Gallery, New York

Before one can understand Schorr's work, one must attempt to understand the artist herself. To someone who grew up in a small town in Germany, the pictures often appear like family pictures from a rather modest background.

This can be quite discouraging, it just feels 'too close' and as such, it might take a while to realise that we are looking at a piece of art. But it is for that very reason that we should take a closer look.

Collier Schorr is a Jewish American and has been travelling through the idyllic Schwäbisch Gmünd for the last 20 years. Her photographs confront German history, toy around with clichés, misunderstandings and show a world that feels alien to her.

The artist was born in 1963 in New York and her work has been exhibited internationally, in London, Florence, Oslo and Salamanca.

New York’s 303 Gallery will be showing present her current series 'Journals & Notebooks' until the 4th of December. If you want to understand her work better, then you really should visit the exhibition.
