Christof Klute

In his new works, Christof Klute deals with the spaces of human co-existence which correlate with ideas of social utopias of modernity (e.g. buildings by Le Corbusier, Niemeyer, Taut).

The artist creates photo series that makes architectural space not an object of impartial observation but a place of subjective experience. He achieves this by repeatedly visiting the same locations, exploring their atmosphere in varying conditions of illumination and eyeing particular recurring details. This way, pictures between atmosphere and abstraction come about.<br />
