„The Biography of Things“ zeigt rund 160 Werke der Fotografieklasse der Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG) Offenbach sowie der Art Collection Deutsche Börse.

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
we cordially invite you to our opening event for the exhibition “The Biography of Things” on 1 February 2018 at 6.30 p.m. in The Cube, Eschborn.
In our daily lives, we are surrounded by objects everywhere we go. However, they are not merely part of our surroundings; they hold clues on how we perceive our environment and how we wish to be perceived. Our exhibition “The Biography of Things” explores the question of how the objects depicted in photographs can turn into protagonists and unfold new realities. In this process of artistic examination, the camera takes on the role of intermediary – much like a telescope focusing on the world of objects, which appear to be subject to their own laws and put our perception to the test.
“The Biography of Things” is a collaboration of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation, the Liebscher photography class of the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (HfG, University of Art and Design) and students of the Curatorial Studies programme of Goethe University and Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main. The exhibition shows around 80 works by 15 HfG students as well as a comprehensive selection of works from the Art Collection Deutsche Börse which also reflect the subject matter. In addition, a temporary exhibition project for an exterior space as well as an accompanying publication have been developed.
The vernissage will be opened by Anne-Marie Beckmann, Director of the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation. Following the welcome speech, Marie Oucherif, Curatorial Studies, and Alexandra König, Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation, will introduce both presentations.
Please register for the event through our website until 25 January 2018.
Following the opening event, you may visit the exhibition as part of our guided tours until 27 April 2018.
