JÜRGEN KLAUKE in 'Body Performance'

Helmut Newton Foundation, Berlin, Germany

30 Nov 2019 - 20 Sep 2020

The Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin presents the group exhibition Body Performance, exploring the fundamental connection between photography and human actions performed in front of the camera.


The practise of German artist Jürgen Klauke has deeply explored both photography and performance. The exhibition includes his series Viva España from 1976, in which one man and one woman stage peculiar choreographies at the threshold of dance, contortionism and erotic actions, blurring the lines between the feminine and the masculine.
