In close collaboration with the artist, three motifs have been selected from Katz’s Havelhöhe series that not only document the everyday of the patients at the Havelhöhe hospital in Berlin but are also characterized by a unique artistic perspective. At the same time, Katz’s works are a sociohistorical document: the architectural views can be understood as a reference to changing social appropriations of architecture. The buildings were erected during National Socialism for the regime’s Reichsakademie and for training soldiers.
This portrait of a young man, characterized by a sharp-angled view from above and the rhythm of the stairway steps, is aesthetically inspired by the formal language of the New Vision of the1920s. The work can be read as an homage to the photographer Alexander Rodchenko.
