Anke Schüttler’s work is always closely linked to her own emotional experiences. In her latest work “I cried for you”, Anke portrays a variety of healing methods in which she presents not only a variety of ways of dealing with “Liebeskummer” but also the results of this self-experimentation.

About

In an honest and in some instances exaggerated form of self-contemplation, she documents visits to the doctor, self-help books, rituals, and a range of other activities.

“I cried for you”

Breaking up, being left by someone or leaving someone can trigger heavy psychological stress and physiological symptoms. The emotional pain that the majority of people experience two to three times in their lifetimes is referred to colloquially in German as “Liebeskummer”, which in this context refers to the state of being heartbroken.

Based on collected materials such as photographs, documents, and objects, the work is supplemented by participatory elements on the topic and is rounded off by a series of planned live performances on the opening day.

The exhibition is also a way for the photographer to say goodbye. After five years in Berlin, the artist Anke Schüttler–who studied Fine Arts in Montpellier and photography in Arles–is leaving Europe to study “Art and Social Practice” in Portland, Oregon.
