What role does the photographic image of human beings play in contemporary society? To what extent do (self-)staged images taken via Instagram, Facebook, etc. (and the constant circulation of those images) affect the way we engage with the portrait as a traditional genre in the visual arts? These were just some of the questions taking centre stage in early summer 2017 when students of the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig and the Academy of Fine Arts Nuemberg got together with Professors Torsten Hattenkerl and Jürgen Teller in the secluded setting of the prefab buildings of the Libken artists’ residence in the Uckermark region of north-eastern Germany. This rather unusual constellation for everyday academic life gave rise to some very different concepts of study and teaching aimed at examining a specific location, oneself, and the Other. The findings of this particular experiment constitutes the first section of the Pictures for Donald exhibition.
