DEEDS CALENDAR: Hannah Höch Preis 2024: Akinbode Akinbiyi. Being, Seeing, Wandering – Berlinische Galerie | until 14.10.2024

Akinbode Akinbiyi (* 1946 Oxford, Great Britain) has been awarded the Hannah Höch Preis 2024. Akinbiyi, who has lived and worked in Berlin since 1991, explores the world’s metropolises for his street photography. Lagos, Bamako, Berlin or Durban – the urban space is his workplace. A place that he perceives as a ‘boundless labyrinth’, ‘a maze of never-ending streets, flowing together in countless paths’, as he put it in 2009. Akinbiyi photographs what he observes, analogue and predominantly in black and white. In front of the lens of his medium format camera, reality is staged playfully, almost autonomously. His images are visual metaphors that thematise cultural change and social exclusion as well as the socio-political and urban planning consequences of colonialism.
