Artist Talk & Book Signing

»An Evening with John Gossage & Brad Feuerhelm«

Hosted by Berlin Foto Kiez

This is a unique event in Berlin, presented by Berlin Foto Kiez, featuring John Gossage, photographer, and Brad Feuerhelm, artist/collector/writer/managing editor of American Suburb X, who will present their work and enter into a conversation, followed by a Q&A from the audience.

Gossage and Feuerhelm will have conducted a five day workshop in Berlin and on this evening the work made by the participants will be presented.

Book signing organised by Bildband Berlin.

John Gossage is a highly regarded and award winning American photographer known for his determined yet sensitive explorations of the under-recognised urban environment. He employs a mix of documentary and conceptual approaches to his projects, and always with a heightened visual awareness suffused with a quiet and considered attitude. His many published photobooks have been highly influential to a generation of photographers, most notably The Pond and Berlin in the Time of the Wall (Loosestrife Editions, 2004). The Pond (Aperture, 2010), is a ground-breaking study of an un-kempt area of woodland on the periphery of a city first published in 1985, is an antithesis to the tradition of the romantic representations of the American landscape. Berlin in the Time of the Wall, published in 2004, is described by Gerry Badger as ‘Gossage’s Berlin work (that) will surely be regarded as one of the more significant bodies of landscape work from the 1980’s. It is a fascinating mediation on place, history, politics, and the power of photography – not only to document, but as Henry James put it, ‘give out’ its secrets to the participant at once so interested and so detached as to be moved to make a report of the matter.‘ Gossage was taught by Lisette Model, Alexey Brodovich and Bruce Davidson. He was born in New York but lives in Washington, D.C.

Brad Feuerhelm is a prolific American artist, writer, curator and notable collector of photographs, both vernacular and artistic that possess difficult or different qualities. Since 2014 Feuerhelm has been the managing editor of American Suburb X and consistently writes for the magazine. His most recent photobook, Goodbye America published by Yard Press in 2016, is a critique of the representation of the American ideal, expressed via destroyed photographs of perfectly ‘innocent‘ snapshot moments. Feuerhelm has written for many publications including Hotshoe and 1000 Words and has curated numerous exhibitons including Haunting the Chapel, Photography and Dissolution, at the Daniel Blau gallery in London.
