"Are you really living like this?" - Homes, Houses and Photographers

“Are you really living like this?” A question that easily arrives when we are confronted with someone whose concept of home doesn’t correspond to our own ideas.
But with increasing segregation and assimilation of lifestyles this question hardly ever arises.
My intention is to let this question come up as often as possible, to answer it with a clear “yes!” and – through different photographic approaches – contemplate as much the answer as the question itself.

Nico Baumgarten (1981, artist, Berlin)
I studied geography, photography and bookbinding.
I self-publish photobooks to critically comment on contemporary society.
I teach to share, socialize and confront myself with other ideas.
I live in a home of which many people think it is a car.
I’m building a new home and I don’t know what to think of it.

About

Since 1999, the Triennial of Photography has taken place every three years in Hamburg in collaboration with the city’s major museums, cultural institutions, galleries, and other organizers. Meanwhile, the festival has become an important event throughout Germany and internationally. With a large number of exhibitions under a common theme, it highlights current topics in photography. The festival features conversations with artists, thematic discussions, lectures, portfolio viewings, and an international conference.

The Triennial of Photography originated as an initiative of the photographer and collector F. C. Gundlach. Since 2014, the event has been organized by Deichtorhallen Hamburg GmbH.

The theme of the 7th Triennial of Photography in 2018 will be announced soon.

Krzysztof Candrowicz will serve as artistic director of the upcoming Triennial of Photography for a second time after the festival in 2015.
