Kristin Loschert “Boxer”
This event has ended.
In the ‘Boxer’ series, Kristin Loschert visits and photographs a boxing gym situation in Jüterbog, Brandenburg, Germany. Formally well known in the time of German Democratic Republic, the building is now falling into disrepair. Despite this situation, however, there are still a number of young boys and girls who visit there wishing to receive training in boxing. By observing the various minute elements and movements that are inlaid in the location and the youth, Loschert attempts to read an essence of something that lies beyond the sports boxing itself. Roughness, self-transcendence (boxing gesture), fragility, and tenderness stand next to each other. Transcending the physical existence of the gym, Loschert’s photographs convey the portraits of the young boxers and the place where she sees the anachronistic traits of her objects.
