erbossynBerlin until 13/9/2009 Akademie der Künste Hanseatenweg 10 Telling Time. Contemporary Photography and Video Works from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Germany. curated by Jule Reuter (Berlin) in cooperation with local curators in participating countries  The exhibition, -Turbulent World – Telling Time-, looks at the far-reaching processes of change symbolized by the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, through the eyes of artists from the former Soviet Union. It focuses on an artistic reflection on this -turbulent- period, and is to be viewed as an empirical approach to a complex theme. Developed by Jule Reuter together with local curators, the exhibition presents 16 photographic and video positions: diverse reflections on processes and experiences of change in seven former Soviet states (today counted as part of Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus) and in Germany. Four important themes come to the fore: family, identity, urban change and politics.  The central theme of family is exemplified in the documentary photographic series of Irina Abzhandadze and Christian Borchert. Other artists (Erbossyn Meldibekov/ Nurbossyn Oris, Vladimir Kupriyanov, Igor Savchenko) use photographs from old family albums as a point of departure for their artistic work. Using the biographies of their parents’ generation, these artists raise questions about the time, place and style of photography, and prompt reflection about the role of this medium in both private and public contexts. The exhibition includes about 200 photographic works and five video works.  Participating artists: Irina Abzhandadze (Georgia), Viktor An (Uzbekistan), Talgat Asyrankulov (Kyrgyzstan), Tina Bara/Alba D’Urbano (Germany, Italy), Christian Borchert (Germany), Olga Chernysheva (Russia), Shailo Djekshenbaev (Kyrgyzstan), Alevtina Kakhidze (Ukraine), Vladimir Kupriyanov (Russia), Viktor Marushchenko (Ukraine), Erbossyn Meldibekov/ Nurbossyn Oris (Kazakhstan), Koka Ramishvili (Georgia), Igor Savchenko (Belarus), Oksana Shatalova (Kazakhstan)  Catalogue: A tri-lingual catalogue (German, Russian and English) contains brief texts by the curators on works from their countries, as well as introductory essays by historian and Slavist Barbara Christophe and head curator Jule Reuter.
