Artist Talk: Arwed Messmer with Gerry Badger
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.
