Magnus Terhorst: Definition von Glück

Foto: Magnus Terhorst

Mein Fotoessay ist eine Suche nach den Grenzen zwischen Sucht, Spaß und Alltag, die sich beim Konsum von Alkohol auftun. Meine Arbeit zeigt eine Gesellschaft, in der das Trinken zum guten Ton gehört und das Nichttrinken nicht der Norm entspricht, in der Alkohol ständig verfügbar ist und das richtige Maß zu halten eine Herausforderung darstellt. Angezogen von dieser Ambivalenz wird die Parallelität der verschiedenen Lebensrealitäten und ihrer Klischees dokumentiert.

Spomenik Monument Database

Spomenik Monument Database Book by Donald Niebyl

spomenik (the Serbo-Croatian/Slovenian word for ‘monument’) are a series of memorials built from the 1950s-1990s during Tito’s Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, whose primary intent was to honor its people’s resistance struggle during the People’s Liberation Struggle (1941-1945) (aka WWII) against Axis occupation and oppression. They commemorate not only the crimes which occurred during the region’s brutal occupation, but they additionally celebrate the ‘Revolution’ which defeated them, all lead by Tito’s Partisan Army of rebel fighters. However, these monuments were, and still are, more than just the sum of their parts.


The HBO Original docuseries Telemarketers chronicles the 20-year journey of two unlikely employees who stumble upon the murky truth behind a seedy New Jersey call center. With raw eyewitness footage and a comedic cast of characters, this three-part documentary takes you from an anarchic boiler room filled with booze, drugs, and debauchery to the halls of the United States Senate as a billion-dollar telemarketing scam unravels.


Becoming by Jan van IJken

Becoming is a short film about the miraculous genesis of animal life. In great microscopic detail, we see the ‘making of’ a salamander in its transparant egg from fertilization to hatching.

The first stages of embryonic development are roughly the same for all animals, including humans. In the film, we can observe a universal process which normally is invisible: the very beginning of an animal’s life. A single cell is transformed into a complete, complex living organism with a beating heart and running bloodstream.

The salamander embryo (an Ichthyosaura Alpestris) was followed very closely in a combination of timelapse and film. All stages of embryogenesis can be seen in this film: cleavage, gastrulation, neurulation and organogenesis. Time was condensed from about 3 weeks to 6 minutes.
