Jürgen Baumann & Birgit Dieker

The human body as an object of media staging, political appropriation and projection site for collective attributions, but also as a subject of human aestheticization, is at the center of the work of the Berlin artists Jürgen Baumann and Birgit Dieker.



In a jointly developed exhibition concept, they dialogically contrast sculptural and photographic groups of works and thus create an artistic space for the complex discussion of body-specific aspects of the present.




Birgit Dieker (* 1969) works sculpturally and uses various materials such as: B. textiles and leather, but also everyday objects, in order to create body-analogous objects, which are in turn deconstructed through sometimes martial-looking interventions and applications. The predominantly female body becomes the scene of fragmentation, it is alienated and goes through numerous aggregate states of metamorphosis. These signal both collective access and a look into the inner state.


Jürgen Baumann's (* 1958) large-format photo tableaus focus on body surfaces and use significant details and internal structures as an opportunity for artistic investigations. Contrary to contemporary medialization, he scans bodies in detail with the camera and uses these fragmentations to develop largely abstracted spaces and aesthetic “landscapes” that construct new visual realities beyond the representational.
