Two artists, one space of time: Araki and Sergey Bratkovon on show at Hamburg's Deichtorhallen

On Friday, 18 June, the House of Photography at the Hamburg Deichtorhallen will host a large-scale private view. Two exhibitions will be opened in cooperation with other museums:

Nobuyoshi Araki’s ‘Silent Wishes’ and Sergey Bratkov’s ‘Heldenzeiten’; providing a rare opportunity to gain an insight of a vast selection of photographs, including some unknown ones.

The collaboration with the Museum der Moderne (Museum of the Modern) in Salzburg has resulted in the exhibition of Japanese photographer Araki. The focus lies on the photographer’s early works from the late 1960s and continues to include his contemporary, characteristic erotic pictures.

The focal point of the exhibition is the intimate ‘My Wife Yoko’ series, which depicts the artists' young wife on their honeymoon, in their home, daytrips in the surrounding local area. They are completed by a series of 12 photographs from the years 1989/1990, which sees Araki standing by his wife and her illness. ‘Winter Journey’ relates the poignant story of farewell.

The exhibition of Russian-Ukraine artist Bratkow came into being in cooperation with the Winterthur Photography Museum. Made up of 130 works, the exhibition offers a comprehensive insight into his art since the early 1990s and is a testimony to his socio-critical, political as well as lyrical way of expression. He topicalises the every day lives of post-USSR people and narrates the former reality in wild and piercing photography.

Sergey Bratkov will be present for the press conference on 17 June (11am)
