Matthias Klos
au milieu du mouvement

Klos Cover

When browsing through the photographic material captured at suburban Vienna, Nuremberg and Pritzwalk, one cannot help but notice the wide range of measures public spaces require: signs, demarcations, lights, warning signs and traffic signs, water and power supply facilities, and much more. Matthias Klos deliberately avoids connecting the three places with the photographs, therefore provoking their interchangeability.

About the product

The city and the edge are interrelated, which is relevant for Matthias Klos’s photographic works. When browsing through the photographic material captured at suburban Vienna, Nuremberg and Pritzwalk, one cannot help but notice the wide range of measures public spaces require: signs, demarcations, lights, warning signs and traffic signs, water and power supply facilities, and much more. Matthias Klos deliberately avoids connecting the three places with the photographs, therefore provoking their interchangeability. By having only very few characteristic objects or country-specific designations appear, Klos stresses the conformity of such central European cities. Matthias Klos describes the ever-spontaneous encounters with his motifs as “stage-like situations.” To him, they often appear like places where small comedies of manners could be staged. (Ruth Horak)
