About
Barbara Armbruster

Stefanie Stegmann

Photographic tale of a city: in the published edition MYCAI, by esefeld & traub, Barbara Armbruster surveys the megacity of Cairo. Her photographic gaze is a tender one, following the poetry of everyday life. She captures images and moods that convey a great sense of calm, whilst intuitively imparting the sensation of loneliness and abandonment; therefore, entering into a profound relationship with the urban agglomeration of Cairo. Her photographs show structures; surfaces; fabrics; they integrate lighting moods and depict tableaux. They feature people beyond the tourist hotspots; such as, in the still of a man lost in reading, whose likeness is captured whilst he is engrossed in a book, in a public space, at a gate, at an entrance/exit, seated, whose spirit, whose thoughts, however, are being moved – somewhere between the entrance and exit of fiction and reality. Likewise, softly window lit, sacredly so, a woman’s body posture and hand gesture reminds us, foremost, of a person at prayer, whilst she reverently – quite secularly – in that precise moment, busies herself in producing the nourishment common before all forms of faith: Bread.

Dr. Andreas Gabelmann

„Im Mittelpunkt von Barbara Armbrusters Werk steht ein kulturübergreifender Ansatz. Mit den verschiedenen Medien und Ausdrucksmitteln von Zeichnung, Malerei und Rauminstallation erkundet sie einen interkulturellen Kontext zwischen Ost und West, Orient und Okzident, im Sinne eines Austausches und Dialoges von Kulturkreisen und Gesellschaften, Tradition und Moderne, Geschichte und Gegenwart. Eine ganz wesentliche Grundlage für ihren ästhetischen, gestalterischen und gedanklichen Prozess bildet dabei der langjährige Aufenthalt in der ägyptischen Millionenstadt Kairo.“
