Body performance. Helmut Newton Foundation Berlin

Performance is an independent art form and photography is its constant companion. Human actions in front of the camera can be conscious or unconscious, choreographed or accidentally observed. For the first time, this group exhibition brings together photo sequences whose origins lie in performance art, dance, and other staged events, complemented by conceptual photography series. With their common focus on the human body, the images document or interpret performances, which in many cases have also been initiated by the photographers themselves.

In this exhibition, physical transformation as contemporary photographic perspectives on the most diverse visual aspects of the body and movement plays important role. The images, questions come into focus concerning how we are perceived by others and by ourselves, identity, and the collective.
