The US artist Nan Goldin occupies a central position in contemporary photography worldwide. Her focus is on the themes of love, sexuality and violence. With works from her personal environment and the LGBT community, she has broken taboos, transcended boundaries, and thus campaigned for acceptance and increasing recognition of the LGBT scene.

Nan Goldin receives the Käthe Kollwitz Prize 2022

On the occasion of the award ceremony in March 2023, the Academy of Arts presents photographs by Nan Goldin from over fifty years of her work.

The exhibition features black-and-white and color photographs from her early Boston years, New York, Berlin, and Asia, as well as recent large-scale works such as Landscapes and Grids.

Photographs by Nan Goldin from over fifty years of her work

The immediacy in Nan Goldin's photographs stems from her physical and emotional belonging to and detachment from a living world that is closed to many people and has been opened up by Goldin. Nan Goldin thinks of her images in rhythmic sequences. This gives rise to a cumulative aspect of the compositions, which are in constant motion through extensions, changes, and the changing relationships of the individual elements to one another.

Nan Goldin, born in 1953 in Washington, D.C., lives and works in New York. In 1991 she came to Berlin at the invitation of the DAAD and lived there for four years.

Nan Goldin's work is represented in many collections worldwide. Her works have most recently been on view at:
Tate Modern, London (2019); Château de Versailles, France (2018); Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2017); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2016). She has been recognized with numerous awards, including the Centenary Medal of the Royal Photographic Society, London (2018), the Hasselblad Award (2007), and as Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres France (2006). In 2017, Nan Goldin founded the activist group P.A.I.N. (Prescription Addiction Intervention Now).

  • Exhibition opening on Thursday, January 19, 2023, 7 p.m., free admission.
  • Award ceremony for Nan Goldin on Friday, March 3, 2023, 8 p.m., free admission.
