As a gallery owner, Hamburg is the perfect city for me. Enthusiasm for photography in all age groups is very high. The number of visitors to the Triennale and House of Photography speaks for itself. A trade fair like PHOTOPIA is the highlight and a necessary enrichment...

COLLISIONS / HÔTEL NOIR

CAPITIS GALERIE presents two solo exhibitions under one roof starting April 1, 2022:

British photographer and collage artist Justine Laeufer and Berlin-based photographer J. Konrad Schmidt address the theme of "femininity" in very different ways - and on two levels.

ABOUT JUSTINE LAEUFER

Inspired by Dadaism, Constuctivism and London Punk, she created colorful and large-format collages that do not fit together and yet harmonize. Her themes: "Rebellion versus Conformity," "Digital versus Analog," "Feminism versus Masculinity." For her predominantly large-format works, Justine Laeufer uses exclusively her own photographs, both of faces and flowers.

ABOUT J. KONRAD SCHMIDT

J. Konrad Schmidt is all about eroticism and passion. His black-and-white photos were taken in the context of his book project "HÔTEL NOIR," for which he spent almost ten years photographing 32 women in erotic poses or making love in the anonymity of various unnamed luxury hotels. For the photographer, the hotels became "social experimentation centers without a mandate".
