dienacht Special Issue: Ostkreuzschule – Seminar Linn Schröder

This special edition of dienacht presents new work from 19 photographers of the seminar run by Linn Schröder at the Ostkreuzschule for Photography.

You cannot delay time, let alone stop it – really?

The old longing to freeze time, to restore golden moments lost and to celebrate the here and now were the spiritual godfathers of this project in photography. A great challenge indeed – yet more than welcome. Photography freezes the moment in time, transforming it into lasting remembrances. But what do we really remember? What do pictures show us after all? The gap between golden moments lost and the here and now – which is the theme of this exhibition – cannot be bridged, however much we long for this to happen. The idea of this publication is to focus on the precarious position of photography in its balancing act between remembrances and reality, between oblivion and events in the past. Besides, this publication endeavours to point out the transformation of the old longing for immortalizing time into a longing for a modern and lasting imprint.
