Back Stages: The making of Art and Culture

Back Stages: The making of Art and Culture

28.00 €



In Back Stages, Amsterdam-based photographer Katrin Korfmann (born 1971) and sculptor Jens Pfeifer (born 1963) present their recent series of 12 vividly colored bird's-eye photographs of sites of cultural and artistic production--including an 11th-century Moroccan tannery, a Chinese glass-blowing studio and a rehearsal for the Dutch National Ballet.

‘We are fascinated by systems of manufacture for art and culture as opposed to the romantic notion of the artist labouring in solitude within their studio. By emphasising values placed on the production and handling of artistic goods, we are presenting this work as a visual tribute to the creative process.’


This publication sees Katrin Korfmann and Jens Pfeifer place the composition and materialisation of cultural identity in focus. This feat is achieved by capturing the production sites of artisans from across the globe. By taking a bird’s-eye perspective, joined with anthropological interests, this series of photographs foretell the creativity that comes with human effort in the making, collecting and preserving of culture. Whether they are glassblowers, archaeologists, stonemasons or artists they’re all members of the same guild.
This is Back Stages: a series of twelve photographic works dedicated to the dynamic processes within the production of art and culture.
