Bachmann captures representative scenes of contemporary life all
over the world. What you get is what she saw. She never arranged
the actual photographed moment. She is an “eyewitness” of
modern society and basic nature. Many of Tanja Bachmann’s
pictures achieve their tension and beauty thru “framework”.
The right framing of the ongoing interaction and existing
structure is an important instrument of her work. “Framing is
everything”. She prefers clear and detailed objects. She
believes and searches for pure nature and captures the authentic
beauty of it. It is a radiating minimalism that Tanja Bachmann
presents in her photographs. She is a member of the
Freikunst-movement that was founded in July 2007. Freikunst and
their protagonists reflect on the inseparable complex unit of
existing modern society, politics, eros and basic needs.
“Nature vs/and Human Believes”. Art, politics, sex, morals
are all part issues of one big game played by human beings who
are removed from their base, stultified and void of intuition,
so it seems. Freikunst and their ARTists try to revitalize the
importance, responsibility and meaning of the real person by
creating a variety of politically motivated ART (installations).
