Curated by Birgit Kulmer

Black - which like white is not actually a true colour - refers in our western tradition to the notion of nothingness or represents it. Occasionally, it is also an indication of not knowing, forgetting and that »non-time« beyond memory. Black can be understood as a means of crossing lines - from the visible to the invisible, from the conscious to the unconscious, from the present to the forgotten.

If, in art, black is considered a radical formal expression of negation, alongside the act of forgetting, it contains a certain loss of control or weakness at the same time. The title of the exhibition »Black Out« picks up on this ambivalence. As the visible interface in painting, drawing and photography, black simultaneously marks the limits of the medium. Which image emerges in the process of fading, which traces are left in the act of forgetting? The works shown in the exhibition »Black Out - On the Verge of the Photographic« raise questions such as these.
