Maren Manzl: Intermedialität im Werk von Gregory Crewdson

Born in 1962 in Brooklyn, photographer Gregory Crewdson stages large-format photographs with a view to the melancholic and alienated life in American suburbs. The main themes are apparently randomly captured scenes of interiors, front gardens, and street exits, in which the protagonists usually seem to be introverted. In her recently published monograph, Maren Manzl presents the visual artist's entire oeuvre in the context of painting, film and photography. Crewdson's photographs are juxtaposed with works by Hopper, Eggleston, Wall and Sternfeld as well as films by Lynch, Spielberg and Hitchcock.

Melanie Kraft: historia, narratio, exemplum. Jörg Breu d. Ä. und die Historienbilder für das Herzoghaus München

The Augsburg artist Jörg Breu the Elder (1475/80 - 1540) worked for numerous high-ranking clients, such as Maximilian I, the Fugger or the Ducal House Munich, from which one of his most prestigious commission went out: For the so-called history paintings he created the history of Lucretia and the Battle of Zama. Based on these panels, this new study focuses on the narrative strategy and the image theorem of Breu in the context of his œuvre and his contemporaries. For the first time, Breus' pictorial inventions are analyzed in order to make a hitherto neglected painter of the German Renaissance more tangible.
