Suzanne Brügger, Thomas Demand, and Heidi Specker

Real Space, Conceptual Space is a photographic exhibition that explores the concept of public space. It is part of an exhibition series called “Aspects of Contemporary German Photography.”

The photographic works of artists Suzanne Brügger, Thomas Demand and Heidi Specker present different stances in contemporary German photography. In their works the authenticity of a photograph is not under question, but is deemed to be the basis for producing art. The works reveal an unmistakable affinity with public space. This reference is evident in both the “drawn” abstract architectural pictures of Heidi Specker, the dissections of town views by Susanne Brügger and in the constructed space pictures of Thomas Demand.
