Lawrence Abu Hamdan’s (b. 1985 Amman, Jordan) audiovisual works and installations explore the political implications of language and communication. Traces of governmental or corporate violence and mechanisms of surveillance and propaganda reveal themselves in the scope of auditory perception.
Bettina Pousttchi works at the interface between sculpture, photography and architecture. Her site-specific photographic interventions adopt an architectural scale, often taking up whole walls of buildings and referencing the urban or historical context of a place. Pousttchi articulates perceptions of reality in the digital age and explores the relationship between memory and history from a transnational perspective.
This exhibition explores the complexity of Israel and the West Bank—their topography, inhabitants, and everyday life—from the perspective of twelve internationally acclaimed photographers.

He convinced renowned photographers to join him: Wendy Ewald, Martin Kollar, Josef Koudelka, Jungjin Lee, Gilles Peress, Fazal Sheikh, Stephen Shore, Rosalind Fox Solomon, Thomas Struth, Jeff Wall, and Nick Waplington.
The Bauhaus existed for only 14 years in Germany, but for 100 years its ideas have now been passed on and its products relaunched, imitated and further developed.

As one of Iceland’s leading artists, Hreinn Friðfinnsson (born in 1943, Bær Dölum, IS) is celebrated for his inspirational and poetic use of everyday objects.

Friðfinnsson’s work could be characterised as conceptual, it investigates our understanding of time and the world around us.
