Andreas Mühe, *1979, lives and works in Berlin. At 16 years old, he completed training as a photo lab technician and then worked for 3 years with photographer Ali Kepenek in Berlin and London and later as an assistant to Anatol Kotte in Hamburg. Since 2001, he has worked as an independent photographer. In his early creative period, he occupied himself with numerous portraits of prominent figures, musicians, actors, and artists. F. C. Gundlach, who has been a strong supporter of Mühe since the beginning, once described his work as one “… of exceptional consequence”. Mühe meticulously choreographs and stages his work. Having grown up in the world of theater, staging, and changing of scenery, he carries over his aesthetic experiences in this genre to photography. Mühe uses painterly means thus creating a break with reality and a glimpse into the imaginary. Mühe presents his art from a perspective that requires concentration. His archeology of reminiscence is a journey into the present day of our visual memory, which has recorded those years and stored them away without even having before our eyes what his pictures are trying to show us. It is the historically charged sites that Andreas Mühe visits and captures in the context of a revolving present.
