Antje Hanebeck

Antje Hanebeck (born in Braunschweig in 1968), master-class graduate at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts and currently assistant professor at the Chair of Photography, proves to be an unusual chronicler of contemporary urban phenomena. The subject of architectural innovation, encompassing as it does buildings celebrated in our era which at the same time mirror the logistics specific to them, informs on an elemental plane the aesthetic research conducted by the author in that it is the red thread running through her oeuvre. Photographs of architecture are legion and go back to the beginnings of the medium; however, Hanebeck is not concerned with the documentary approach. On the contrary, she uses her motif as the starting-point for complex aesthetic reflection, which is transformed into image through, and by the agency of, photography. LINK antjehanebeck
