Wanderbank. A bench to sit and rest, to talk and listen. A bench to love, read, knit, chat, sleep.

A bench in wandering, in search, in conquering the public space back it once dominated.  This arts project runs through 2014 in Germany’s most southern state Bavaria.

It has been developed together with Christiane Huber and in Cooperation with the Bahnhofsmissionen in Bayern. Today Christiane and the writer Friedrich Ani will sit now and than and occupy the bench, listen to stories, collect personal oral history.

Me, I’ll just take pictures. This one is from the Wanderbank in Passau earlier this month.

Photography Project - Kamera Sanne KurzMunich central station, platform 11. Starbucks is luring at the corner, but help and advice for travelers and those in need can be found much rather next door. The train station mission Munich, the Bahnhofsmission München, has open doors 24/7.

I was lucky enough to do a wonderful project for the Bayerische Bahnhofsmissionen two years back with the Australian-German director  Vanessa van Houten. – Now the Munich based artist Christiane Huber has been invited to do a photography project with the guests of the Bahnhofsmission München.

An open space, many excited guests of the mission, a truly wonderful support from the staff and the many different stories, that flooded together with the people straight in to our studio, made this project a great success for all people involved.

The exhibition can be seen on the National Day of the Train Station Missions, Saturday, 20th of April 2013, Munich Central Station, Platform 11.

This is the trailer for the participatory and essayistic part of the documentary Doing Nothing All Day. It’s a documentary film about democratic education. I am shooting with Munich based artist, producer and director Margarete Hentze. On 3rd of May opens the 3rd exhibition we have for this ever growing super 8 project within Doing Nothing all Day – democraticArts.

It’s screening time. This spring, many of the films I shot in the last years, found their way in to cinemas and/or entered the festival circuit.

Girls Who Smoke has been selected for the United Nations’ Through Women’s Eyes  series at the Sarasota Film Festival, USA. Director Tawnya Foskett mailed me:

It was fabulous on every level.  Would go into more detail but our producer Laurie and I are fried as we had a 13 hr festival day today!  Tomorrow we are going to the beach!

Alice Gruia, director of Rodicas is touring with the Audi Festival of German Films through Australia. After having premiered at Berlinale 2012, this bittersweet documentary finds now its audience in cinemas. Alice Gruia and Leander Haußman, the two German directors traveling with the festival organized by the Goethe Institute, are having a ball. The next screening of Rodicas will be in Melbourne, 22nd of April, @18:00, Kino Cinemas, Collins Street. There’s a Q&A with Alice after the screening. A great interview about the film you can read here: “Best Secrets are Left Untold”

Tomorrow, Saturday the 21st of April, Cheryl Dunye‘s latest film Mommy is Coming will screen on the IFFF in Cologne. Since I’m nominated for the National Award for Women Cinematographers 2012 for Rüdiger Goerlitz’ nicht weit von mir, I am thrilled to be at the IFFF this year for two lovely occasions. Having been sold out four times at Berlinale 2012, Mommy is Coming is touring cinemas in Germany and worldwide currently. – It’ll screen in Munich @Werkstattkino opening the 26th of April. There’s a Q&A after the screening on Monday, the 30th of April. – For screening times near you, please visit the homepage of the film.

It’s kind of sentimental: I love being on set, shooting, telling a story, work with directors, cast&crew. But sometimes it’s oh so much fun when you’re simply hanging out in the cinema, plunge a bit deeper in to your seat in the dark and see the script unfold like  magic on screen. – Movies are amazing!

Here’s trailers of all four films I spoke about above:
