Texts by Steve Rushton, Yvonne Scheja, Axel Wieder; with a foreword by Tom Trevor and Hilke Wagner

In her photographic projects, Susanne Kriemann takes a research-oriented approach: dealing with archival and forgotten documents in particular is a central aspect to her work. The found photo material then frequently serves as a starting point for her own images. Formal or thematic analogies generate multifaceted layers of association, which address the circumstances in which the historical images were produced, their preservation, as well as their link to the present day—and always also examine her own medium of photography.

This publication was created as part of the solo exhibitions “Cold Time” at the Kunstverein Braunschweig and “Modelling (Construction School)” at Arnolfini in Bristol. Even if the exhibitions were organized entirely independently of one another, the joint effort in producing this catalogue made it possible to go beyond simple exhibition documentation and provide a more in-depth view into the work of Kriemann. In a certain sense, this catalogue is connected to the artist’s earlier publication entitled Reading Susanne Kriemann (Sternberg Press, 2011), consisting exclusively of texts. Here, however, the main point of the publication is to let the images speak for themselves.
