Full Description
The German photographer Boris Becker is one of the most prominent representatives of the Düsseldorf School. In his newest series, Staged Confusion, Becker investigates different forms of chaos in interior and exterior spaces. He captures the individual (dis-)order of cities and private interiors-construction sites, excavation sites, the rooftops of Aleppo in Syria, workshops, sweatshops, and kitchens. Composed as single images, these large-format works, which are from different series, are starkly interrelated in terms of form and content in spite of their heterogeneity. The photographs expose the beauty of what appears to be chaotic at first glance. At the same time the ambivalence of ordered and unordered situations brings up questions about the social principles of order. Text in English and German.
