Art Description

Photography: Black & White, Photo on Paper.

The portrait of Andreas Hentschel (1958-2015) was taken in Christinenstrasse. In the early 80s, friends and I occupied vacant apartments in East Berlin. Many East Berliners had fled to the West and the state housing administration often left houses in neglect, like this apartment.

Matthias Leupold’s Fictive Images by T.O. Immisch:
Matthias Leupold took up a special, almost incommensurable position from the very beginning: his work is not characterised by rational calculation or explicit media reflection, and it demonstrates very few special photographic techniques. Instead its qualities are playfulness, poetry, dreaminess, a gentle melancholy, pictorial narratives, narrative series and irony.
The developments and gains in Leupold’s work during the four short years in East Berlin may be summed up as three fields of opposing tension: between the static and the dynamic, between contemplation and narration, and between the joke and the symbol. In the pictures, however, these dimensions do not divide up, but – to some extent or even fully – they fall into one. published: The Past Has Only Just Begun, Schaden Cologne, 2003
