Carina Linge – New Age of Dissent

Jarmuschek + Partner shows the latest works by the Leipzig-based photo artist Carina Linge.

In naming her series ‘New Age of Dissent’, Carina Linge cleverly forges a link with Notes from the New Age of Dissent, the compilation of blog texts by the British journalist, author, and feminist, Laurie Penny, published in 2011. Penny, a self-declared feminist futurist, writes angry, passionate, and at the same time thoroughly humorous texts about the fears and frustrations that most of the younger generation know only too well. She thus gives a voice to those who can express their silent fears only as a persistent sense of dissatisfaction. The same can be said also of the female artists presented, along with their work, in Linge’s psychogram-like portraits in the form of tableaux. In rendering visible the subjects’ inner emotional worlds, the photographs subtly reveal insights into the phenomena of our time that trouble and drive these artists – sexual identity, exclusion, discrimination, critiques of capitalism, et al.

The exhibition will be presented as part of EMOP Berlin - European Month of Photography 2020.
