Andreas Mühe (b. 1979 in Chemnitz) became internationally known through his examination of the German past and identity. His photographs, produced entirely with analogue technology, are often marked by ambivalence; an almost gloomy overtone, which points to the no longer visible but still perceptible consequences of German historiography. The carefully composed images suggest a certain kinship to theatre and staging.

The proximity to acting, theatre and film can be inferred in part from his personal biography: His father was the well-known actor Ulrich Mühe; his mother is the renowned theatre director Annegret Hahn. These two personalities, along with other relatives, represent the protagonists in his new series of works conceived for an exhibition at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin. In two large-scale photographic family portraits Mühe brings together living and no longer living members of his family. Working from photographs, he used a complex and laborious production process to have deceased family members replicated as strikingly lifelike sculptures.

The exhibition is made possible by the Freunde der Nationalgalerie and supported by the Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft.
