Artist Talk: Arwed Messmer with Gerry Badger

15:00

On the occasion of his nomination for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2019, Arwed Messmer is joined in conversation by writer and curator Gerry Badger to discuss his exhibition RAF – No Evidence / Kein Beweis, Mannheim 2017.

This comprehensive body of work reflects on the trajectory of the Red Army Faction (RAF) also referred to as the Baader-Meinhof Group. A far-left extremist organisation, it was formed in 1970 and engaged in a series of violent terrorist attacks in Germany over the course of three decades.

The resulting project draws on a diversity of source materials from various state archives, including an extensive collection of investigative, forensic and documentary photographs ranging from the mundane to the surreal.
