An exhibition with works by Walther Le Kon
Le Kon visits friends in America on a private trip. The warmth that is brought to him breaks with the everyday quirks and the external appearance of the „American way of life“.
In his illustrated travel story, he observes the coined, banal entanglements and conflicts of his protagonists in the system. The own ambivalence between idealism and cultural complicity becomes evident. His gaze is caught up in auratic clichés and authentic closeness.
A chimera of photo essay and humorous straight-line descriptions, packed in a magazine.
