"On top - on top" stands for an elevated position as a working method and as a photographic perspective.

The exhibition presents four such positions - all landscape shots from the point of view of an elevated viewpoint:
icons of industrial photography by Bernd & Hilla Becher, images of the Atlantic Wall of her master student Matthias Koch, "European battlefields" by Swiss Peter Hebeisen and "Sight Sacralization: (Re) framing Switzerland "by renowned English photographer Simon Roberts.
In addition, the artists use photography as a medium of documentation and reflection. They show places that are historical or meaningful.
The exhibition also gives an insight into the creative process of photographic works.

The exhibition was curated by Marianne Kapfer, Berlin (www.whatulookinart.com).
