Works by photographer Mila Teshaieva will be on view at Museum Kunst der Westküste in Alkersum/Föhr from March 2 through June 4, 2014.
For over four years, Mila Teshaieva has documented the transformation of the three former Soviet republics on the shores of the Caspian Sea: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan. The photos of her series Promising Waters leave the viewer with unanswered questions as to the relationship between the state and private identity, the ties between past, present and future, and how to pinpoint the boundary between a region’s rise or fall.
Ocean Beach is more than a topographic study of a 1940’s New Jersey beach resort. With his graphic, color sensitive, and vernacular photographic voice, Douglas Ljungkvist produced a body of work depicting a unique place in the American landscape with strong yet quiet subtexts of time, memory, and identity.
Cold Landscape assembles 117 images from a world that seems to have come to an end; they are suffused with silence, with only the wind blowing across the cold heart of nature. Cold Landscape is a photographic appeal to our sense of wonder.
The sensitive handling of light has distinguished Schlör’s work for more than two decades. In his most recent compositions as well, elements unnoticed at first glance gradually emerge in what initially seemed to be abstract black-and-white fields.
Roselyne Titaud observes the lives of others through their interiors, their knickknacks, and the particular atmosphere of their daily private setting. For Titaud, a definition for »others« might go something like: those who dream of a time that was; those who have no time to dream; and those who never dream.

52 Weeks, 52 Cities
In his project "52 Weeks, 52 Cities" developed exclusively for Marta Herford, Iwan Baan takes the viewer on a one-year photographic journey around the world – always on the lookout for ingenious homes in unexpected places and outstanding construction projects.
With a well-established international reputation, Japanese photographer Naruki Oshima’s latest work, haptic green, makes nature highly present. He applies a complex technical process to deconstruct an image into more than two hundred elements.

Spielobjekte – Die Kunst der Möglichkeiten (Ludic Objects – The Art of Possibilities) is an exhibition at the Museum Tinguely that showcases the diversity and history of variable art with around 100 exhibits by 20th century artists.

Pars Pro Toto III
Like the two previous volumes, Pars Pro Toto III is the result of a close dialog between artist Susan Hefuna and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist. The focus in this book is on Hefuna’s complex work groups on site-specific and architectural installations, video works and choreographies. Hefuna uses urban spaces and cities like Cairo, London, Istanbul, Sharjah, Sydney, New York, and Vienna as her laboratory.
