This new series “AM” uses Angela Merkel as an example to examine the relationship between politics and the public as well as the representation of female power. I accompanied the CDU chairman and German Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel for years at public performances for this photographic investigation. “AM” shows the theatre, the absurdities and realities of political life, the loneliness, the struggle, the power and the injuries that politics brings with it as a profession. For my presentation I make use of the collective knowledge of one of the most photographed persons on the political stage and deconstruct rituals of public self-presentation with excerpts and sometimes enigmatically encrypted images, thereby making unexpected details speak for themselves.

The book will be available at the vernissage and for the duration of the exhibition. On request, I also like to sign books in the evening of the vernissage.
