Light, Space, Time

– that is everything, besides a camera, a darkroom and a studio, that Susa Templin needs for her work, and that distinguishes it. She does not consider herself a photographer, but sees her work as somewhere between paint­ing and sculpture. Her medium of choice therefore is analog photography. Susa Templin creates her colors in the darkroom, and with her works she departs from the flat surface: with superimposed photography she creates accessible image installations that evolve into the three-dimensional. Light, space and time – according to her, these are the prerequisites of photographic work. Each of her works is a reflection of the light art that it actually is. The catalog goes beyond a mere documentation of the installative and presents works, exhibitions, and art-in-architecture projects of the last ten years. The text by Theres Rhode, curator at the MKK and specialist for Concrete Art as well as photography, examines the conflicting fields of abstraction and concreteness. Christina Leber, head of the DZ Bank art collection, which focuses on photographic forms of expression in contem­porary art, outlines in her essay the photographic philosophy of space. The authors draw attention to a contemporary photographic position that goes far beyond the conventional notion of photog­raphy.
