Founded in 2007 in Cologne, Kaune Contemporary centers on international photography that adapts contemporary and documentary resources.
The gallery represents artists like Nathan Baker, Bruno Bisang, Marina Gadonneix, Peter Granser, Jacqueline Hassink, Stefan Heyne, Todd Hido, Jason Lazarus and Greg Stimac.
Those contemporary positions reflect on our attitude: the confidence in stringent photographic ideas. Our program aims at the curiosity about the world like it is, not like it could be.
The hight aesthetic standard of the works slows down the media overkill to more manageable, sequential moments, therefore allowing the heart and soul of photography to be saved from drowning in a quagmire of artificial experiences. Our strained, selective perception takes refuge on islands of reflection.
