In conjunction with the exhibition 'Women on View', Chaussee 36 dedicates a solo exhibition to the Hamburg-based photographer Karin Székessy. Whilst the group exhibition 'Women on View' addresses ideals of beauty as depicted in advertising photography in which the portrayals of women are mainly shaped by the male gaze, Karin Székessy's exhibition focuses on her nude photography, emphasising a completely different perception of the female body.

About

Chaussee 36 is a unique location devoted to historical and contemporary photography.

Its exhibition space "Galerie 36" stretches across 400m² of the building and is characterized by the concept of the salon, which breaks decidedly with the idea of the gallery as a neutral white cube. Besides exhibitions of national and international photographers as well as the promotion of young talents, Galerie 36 is an open space for cooperation with private collectors, museums and other artistic institutions.

Currently home to a library, a publishing house and an analogue photo lab – the house hosts regularly photography exhibitions and cultural events.
