5/4 time, two beats that rub against each other, joining , merging into a rhythm that hangs, irregular and odd – and drives forward in this tension.

The five works by the graduates of the Neue Schule für Fotografie Berlin join the beat the inside with the beat of the outside allowing us to experience the friction-filled tension that arises when values begin to tremble in a new environment;when the honest, questioning look at one’s own body is confronted with cultural norms and beauty standards, when the city tree struggles with its urban environment. The works visualise how the outside seemingly defines one’s own acuity and show how motifs and places, randomly assembled, come together to form ever-new rhythms.

So: Pause your busy day, and take a time out… five minutes, five hours, everything in between, as it comes – come by and get into the rhythm. …Just take five!
