Dieter Bornemann, A few words

With his camera, Dieter Bornemann seeks out words in public spaces. He gathers impressions on the streets of large cities, defamiliarizes them artistically and places them in a new context. Most motifs vanish from the streets as quickly as they came. Bornemann extends the life of these compelling exclamations, from political theories to declarations of love, and turns them into an important reflection of the urban population. Viewers see a familiar environment from a new perspective, as the cityscape is redefined. In combination with objects from the DESIGN & ART gallery, his work demonstrates how familiar environments and interiors can be extended artistically to create new sensory impressions.
