|As part of its photo exhibition series “CC – Classic Contemporary“, the Kunsthalle Erfurt presents a double exhibition of works by Julian Röder (*1981) and Robert Capa (1913-1954). Both photographers focus on such themes as “socio-political processes of change” in which “conflict and war” serve as the catalysts or consequences of these processes. Like Capa, Röder is not only fascinated with the (potential) violence or military engagement, but rather the tensions of human interaction and co-existence which precede these. Röder is particularly interested in social changes and upheavals that are driven by historic-political events, in other words, in their “real” visible form, which, to some extent, can be attributed to the artist’s background. Yet by focusing on the East-West German conflict, he also documents transformation processes around the world, driven in large part by globalization.
